A complete pleasure to end our Japanese woodblock workshop tour of 15 venues across Europe at Ditchling Museum in Sussex. The museum houses a lot of the print history of the arts and crafts movement in England. Especially, their collection features works by Eric Gill and Hilary Pepler who lived in the village.
We had a woodblock display and mini-print workshop, meanwhile Jenny Dean was delivering a natural dye workshop next door in the garden, Sister Mary Corita Kent’s work was in the main gallery and Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan in the entrance gallery.
Ditchling Museum is a beautiful set of renovated and new buildings built on the old Victorian school house, completed in 2012 by Adam Richards Architects and is well worth a visit if you are in the Brighton / Lewes area. It features a contemporary café at the entrance.
