Family Drop-in: Woven Sculpture

Alison Smith

Following Government advice about coronavirus (Covid-19), the Henry Moore Institute is currently closed until further notice.

We will attempt to reschedule disrupted events where this is possible. Find out more.

Alongside the traditional crafts of woodcarving and ceramics, Varga Weisz occasionally uses basket weaving in her work.

Drop in to learn some traditional weaving techniques using natural materials, to make miniature sculptures inspired by the exhibition Paloma Varga Weisz: Bumped Body.

No booking required, just drop in. Suitable for ages 5+.


For visitors with pushchairs or other access issues, there is an accessible entrance to the Institute via a lift on Cookridge Street, and a passenger lift to all floors of the building.

You will be able to store pushchairs in the seminar room for the duration of the event.

Toilets are located just outside the seminar room on the basement level, including baby changing facilities within the accessible and gender-neutral toilet.

Please see our accessibility page for more information.


Due to our current closure, all of our events are postponed until further notice. We will attempt to reschedule whenever it is possible to do so. Thank you for your understanding.
