The printing press used by Eric Gill, Britain's foremost typographer of the 20th c. He came up with Gill Sans and Perpetua fonts, both still in wide use today.

Had a brilliant first visit to @museumartcraft this week. They were showing the controversial work of Eric Gill with this response by @CathiePilkington. I was almost didn't visit, knowing of Gill's biography, but didn't know when I'd next be in that part of the country again. I thought the museum's handling of his work was sensitive and respectful, particularly the empowering text art in the reading room made by Survivors' Network clients. The show was challenging but I was glad to visit and ponder the question as to whether artwork can be valued for its artistic merit when created in such a depraved context. As well as the show, I also enjoyed a walking trail through the artistic village of Ditchling led by one of the trustees - such a beautiful place! I'd love to go back again for future shows #ditchling #ditchlingmuseum #artandcraftmuseum #ericgill #cathiepilkington #sculpture #carving #Britishart

Gill was an extremely controversial artist who I knew little about until this exhibition, which slaps you in the face with the context of his work.

BURLESQUE DANCER !
Last Friday night I was invited to a drawing session at Brighton University, run by Lucy Jenner from @Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, as part of the May Festival. The Burlesque dancer was fantastic, performed beautifully and her costumes were great, especially the lighting effect inside her cape was very effective in the dark. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the dancer was brilliant to draw, her performance was outstanding. Session leader was Jeremy Radvan.

'Eric Gill: The Body' at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft. A controversial attempt to address the artist's incestuous relationship with his two daughters and the impact this has on the museum's collection, the majority of which is made by Gill himself.

St Mary Magdalen, Eric Gill, 1926. Great new exhibition of Gill's work at The Ditchling Museum, Sussex. #ericgill #ditchlingmuseum #ditchling #sussex
'Eric Gill: The Body' opens @museumartcraft tomorrow.

Co-curated by Cathie Pilkington RA, Royal Academician and Professor of Sculpture of the Royal Academy Schools, 'Eric Gill: The Body' features over 80 works on loan from public and private collections including a major sculpture and drawings that have never been publicly exhibited. Within Gill’s work, the human body is of central importance; this major exhibition asks whether knowledge of Gill’s disturbing biography affects our enjoyment and appreciation of his depiction of the human figure. 'Eric Gill: The Body' is accompanied by a major new commission by Cathie Pilkington for Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft. Doll For Petra (2017) is a co-commission with Brighton Festival.

The exhibition runs 29 April – 3 September 2017. [Image credit: Eric Gill, The Plait, 1922, Pencil on paper

🍾Wednesday Weaver : ETHEL MAIRET
.
.
Ethel Mairet 1872-1952
Ethel was a largely self-taught, hugely influential hand-weaver and natural yarn dyer from England. Her seminal work 'Vegetable Dyes - A Book of recipes and information useful to the dyer' has been an timeless and reliable resource to weavers and dyers for decades. The book is currently being honoured with an exhibition at the Ditchling museum of art and craft in Sussex, where Ethel lived and worked as a weaver from the 1920's onwards as part of the world renowned Ditchling crafts community. .

Ethel's main work was education of and research into the possibilities of weaving, and was fascinated with the capeabilities of the hand loom alongside mass produced fabrics. She therefore spent many years travelling and collecting textiles from around the world, and teaching students about her traditional techniques to try and preserve the craft as she knew it. .

🍾Wednesday Weaver : ETHEL MAIRET . . Ethel's main work was education of and research into the possibilities of weaving, and was fascinated with the capeabilities of the hand loom alongside mass produced fabrics. She therefore spent many years travelling and collecting textiles from around the world, and teaching students about her traditional techniques to try and preserve the craft as she knew it. . . #wednesdayweaver  #textilehistory  #handweaving  #illaestudio  #weaversofinstagram  #ethelmairet  #hackneywick  #ditchlingmuseum
