Join us to explore key themes arising from the Barbara Hepworth Art & Life exhibition in an inclusive, supportive and friendly environment across three modular day courses.
Session 1: Fundamental Forms
‘The forms which have had special meaning for me since childhood have been the standing form (which is the translation of my feeling towards the human being standing in landscape); the two forms (which is the tender relationship of one living thing beside another); and the closed form, such as the oval, spherical or pierced form (sometimes incorporating colour) which translates for me the association of meaning of gesture in landscape…’
Barbara Hepworth, 1951
This day course will focus on the three forms central to Hepworth’s practice throughout her career. Within this broader theme, we will consider subjects such as direct carving, the development of Hepworth’s practice towards abstraction and the variety, inherent qualities and significance of the materials with which she worked.
The more you see, the more we do.
