Henry Moore Studios & Gardens is the work-place and family home of 20th century sculptor Henry Moore: with over 70 acres of sculpture gardens & rolling fields. Each year the sculpture gardens display over 20 of Moore’s world-famous, monumental sculptures; showcasing his work as he intended, against the landscape he shaped.
We will hear Henry Moore’s remarkable story and discover his creative journey in his fascinating studios, where the origins of his monumental bronzes are evident in the hundreds of small models (maquettes) that line the shelves and visit the 16th century Aisled Barn which is the only place in the world where you can see Moore’s remarkable tapestries. We will be able to enjoy This Living Hand: Edmund de Waal presents Henry Moore, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper curated by acclaimed author and artist Edmund de Waal. This exciting exhibition looks the role of touch in sculpture and the iconography of the hand in Henry Moore’s work. For more information visit the Henry Moore Foundation website here.
