Event Navigation

From the early 20th century Ditchling has been a magnet for artists, makers and others who came to the village as a place to make a new kind of life and create work in an environment conducive to alternative thinking.  The Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic played an important part in this community and continued to provide a structure for living and making work until 1989.

Drawing on the Museum’s outstanding collection including never before seen work from the St Dominic’s Press Disruption, Devotion and Distributism will explore the ideas and politics of Ditchling artists and craftspeople, many of which still seems resonant today.
