Barbara Hepworth was a key figure in the British abstract art movement in the 20th century. She often created sculptures which were inspired by nature. She lived near the seaside in St Ives, Cornwall and often used the shapes of shells and rocks to inspire her work.
She loved to work with wood and stone and, later on, in bronze. Her sculptures seem to be growing and look very natural.
Inspired by the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth and by the shapes and forms in nature, carve a fabulous, simple abstract sculpture from a bar of white soap.
You do not have to finish your sculpture in one go. Take your time and really enjoy what you are doing.
