Partner News

We are pleased to announce two new partnerships for the 2023 edition of MADE Brighton

Museum Partner – Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft 

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft is home to a permanent collection that showcases the work of artists and craftspeople living and working in Ditchling, a Sussex village which nurtured some of the 20th century’s most innovative and creative ideas in crafts and design.

The museum’s accredited collection includes the work of internationally renowned craftspeople including Eric Gill, Edward Johnston and Ethel Mairet. The collection tells the story of the Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic, a Roman Catholic artistic community who experimented with communal life and self-sufficiency. On nearby Ditchling Common the Guild built homes, a chapel, and workshops for silversmiths, stone carvers, carpenters, printers and weavers.

The museum presents two new exhibitions a year alongside the permanent collection.  Their current show Double Weave showcases the extraordinary work of the modernist textile designers and the museum’s founders Hilary Bourne (1909-2004) and Barbara Allen (1903-1972), partners in life and work.

The museum has been shortlisted for Museum of Year, and recently received Silver in the Beautiful South Tourism Awards for Small Visitor Attraction of the Year.

At MADE BRIGHTON the museum is presenting an exclusive selection of products at the fair, including brand new Christmas cards featuring woodblock printed designs from their collection by Philip Hagreen. They are also showing a range of homewares from their award-winning shop, alongside our very special Cambridge Imprint stationery range. 

Visitors to their stand will get a voucher for 2 for 1 entry to the museum (an absolutely must-visit) and a discount for the online shop.
