Re/Construct Summer Workshop Series

Our summer workshop series is led by creative practitioners using methods of making and constructing similar to Moore’s, whilst questioning social constructs within their work and guiding and inviting you to do so in yours.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our artist led sessions which explore printmaking, drawing, sculpting and the grounds at Henry Moore’s Studios & Gardens.

Print & Making Your Mark

with Curwen Print Study Centre

Join artist-printmakers from Curwen to transform ideas and drawings into prints to take away. Try your hand at dry point etching, an intaglio technique, that will allow you to trace etch your drawings into a plate for printing.
