Group tours led by an artist exploring the making and meaning of Barbara Hepworth's sculpture

Bring your group to a two-hour artist-led session beginning at the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden.

Working with an artist-educator in the museum and garden, participants will consider the making and meaning of her sculpture. The workshop will place Hepworth’s work in a local and international context, as well as explore her impact on contemporary practice.

The session uses drawing activities in-situ and simple model-making activities. The session aims to create a deeper understanding of sculptural practice with the potential for participants to develop ideas after the workshop.

Price includes drawing book, pencil and modelling materials. After the session your group may explore independently under teacher supervision.
