Sensory Stories

Join us for sensory story time exploring Barbara Hepworth and her artwork. Journey through the Yorkshire moors and take a trip to the Cornish seaside with our sculptures. What will you see, hear and feel?

In the galleries an artist will take you on a special sensory and creative tour of the Hepworth Family Gift to discover the artworks and their stories.

Back in the learning explore textures, draw and make marks and play in sensory experiences inspired by the artworks.
