The goldsmith & silversmith Dunstan Pruden joined the Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic on Ditchling Common in 1932. His work, such as the famous Pruden Chalice in the Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool, influenced a whole generation of craftworkers. He also taught some of the most famous modern silversmiths, such as Gerald Benney, at Brighton College of Art. This lecture will explore the work of Dunstan Pruden, his legacy and Anton Pruden’s continuation of his grandfather’s work within Ditchling today.
