Award winning gem of a museum focusing on the artists and craftspeople who lived in the village. 10 minutes north of Brighton in the South Downs.
Ditchling became a centre for visual arts and crafts in the early 20th century. The museum holds a nationally important collection of works by the artists and craftsmen who were drawn to the village. Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft offers a unique environment to see the objects in the village they were made. Some of the artists associated with Ditchling and included in the Museum collection are Frank Brangwyn,
Eric Gill, Philip Hagreen, Edward Johnston, David Jones, Ethel Mairet, Hilary Pepler.
The Museum reopened in September 2013 following a major refurbishment by Adam Richards Architects. A refurbished 18th Century cart lodge forms the entrance, café and shop and leads you to a beautiful new build made from engineered timber and then into the reimagined exhibition space.
