The Art House at St Matthew’s House


To help people with mental health difficulties make the transition into mainstream society equipped with the skills and networks necessary for a meaningful and hope-filled life.  This is achieved by delivering pottery and art classes in a beautiful facility in the centre of Sheffield, which is shared with the general-public.  The shared activities create a non-stigmatising and asset-based approach to mental health.


The Art House is a busy venue, we run 6 well-being activities/groups each week (supporting approximately 125 people with mental health issues during the course of a year), run over 50 commercial classes during each academic term, numerous weekend art and pottery weekend workshops, a changing programme of art exhibitions and additional room hire to help achieve our income targets (our current financial model is based on having 85% commercial income and 15% other fundraising activities). 

Approach and Service Model

Our approach and service model, is based on the following principles:

  • We take an asset-based approach by building on an individual’s existing skills and abilities
  • We deliver our work within a non-stigmatised space
  • We support the development of individual progression
  • Service user involvement/co-production is central to our philosophy
  • We work on a financial model based on the dual aspect of both being a charity, working with vulnerable individuals, whilst wishing to become as financially self-reliant as possible by developing commercial income streams.
