DITCHLING MUSEUM OF ART + CRAFT
We recently visited the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, which holds an internationally important collection of work by the artists and craftspeople who were drawn to the village. Sculptor, wood engraver, type-designer and letter-cutter Eric Gill, the calligrapher Edward Johnston (responsible for the famous Johnston typeface used for London Underground), the painter David Jones, the printer Hilary Pepler and the weaver Ethel Mairet, were all key members of the community in Ditchling. Their influential and inspirational work is beautifully displayed in this award winning museum, recently refurbished by architect Adam Richards, with a new identity designed by Phil Baines.
What I’d love to see is this new crop of celebrity feminists strongly coming out in support of social justice issues: using their newfound (or quiet but long-standing) politics to create change influenced by that gender justice lens.

Before taking the stage, Julia Louis-Dreyfus made out with Bryan Cranston. Earlier in the broadcast, Cranston and Dreyfus joked about the actor’s guest appearance on “Seinfeld,” where he kissed Dreyfus’ character, Elaine.
