Artist-led workshops

We offer an exciting range of artist-led workshops suitable from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 5.

Please note – Artist-led workshops are now fully booked for this academic year. You are still welcome to visit the gallery for teacher-led visits. If you are based in the Wakefield district, we also have our outreach workshop available – an exciting artist-led sculpture workshop based on Barbara Hepworth.   

Explore new ways of looking, thinking and making with artists at The Hepworth in our range of practical workshops.

These skills-based workshops are led by artists who take students on a creative journey, gathering inspiration from artworks in the galleries and developing these ideas through creative work in our learning studios.
