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
