Day 1: Sculpture In Yorkshire

The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Spend the morning studying Hepworth and making your own sculptures, followed by an afternoon experimenting with sculpture materials in the great outdoors at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Day 2: What Makes A ‘Great’ Sculptor?

Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Art Gallery

Delve into the question of what makes a ‘great’ sculptor, getting hands on experience of research in the world-leading sculpture
library* of the Henry Moore Institute. Then explore this question further in the galleries at Leeds Art Gallery. Finally, select one
sculpture to present and debate with fellow students and staff.

10am – 11:30am: Workshop at the Henry Moore Institute
11:30am – 12pm: Picnic space at Leeds Art Gallery
12pm – 2pm: Workshop at Leeds Art Gallery

*Please note: primary school groups will take part in an active exploration of the gallery instead of library research, to build their research skills.
