Enjoy a FREE Badge Up Workshop on 18 August!
Join artist Ruby Smith to create badges inspired by our current exhibition, Corita Kent: Get With The Action. Ruby’s practice explores current social commentary with the aim of using craft as a tool to open up discussions around politics and the environment. You are invited into our learning space to make badges with Ruby in response to these themes.
Corita Kent (1918 - 1986) was an artist, charismatic educator and Roman Catholic nun based in Los Angeles during the 1960s. Her vibrant screen printed banners and posters drew on pop and modern consumer cultures. Her bright, bold work captured the public imagination in order to influence social change by confronting issues of poverty, racism and war. Her work also resonates with the museum’s permanent collection. Ditchling village has lured many creatives over the years, including the group of renowned artists and craftspeople at the turn of the 20th Century, whose work and lives are celebrated in the museum.
