Bring your class to The Hepworth Wakefield and learn about Barbara Hepworth’s artwork in a multi-sensory and inclusive environment. Experience the artwork and develop creative skills using a range of sensory objects and materials, working in our bespoke learning studios and gallery spaces.
Work with an artist for one or two sessions (workshops last 2 hours) selecting from either Sensory Stories or Printmaking. The Hepworth Wakefield worked closely with Highfields School (July 2017) and Kingsland Primary School (September 2017) to pilot these workshops with primary and secondary students supported by Alison Deering.
£130 for one session
£260 for two sessions
Materials and refreshments provided. Please ask students to bring a packed lunch with them.
