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.

Please note

The gallery and our activities for families can be busy during school holidays and weekends. To help us facilitate an enjoyable experience for all of our visitors we ask that groups of 5 or more children let us know when they plan to visit by contacting the Learning Team on   learning@hepworthwakefield.org  or 01924 247398.


This workshop is suitable for children aged 0 – 12, who must be accompanied by an adult.

This session is free but please book your place on one of the time slots at reception when you arrive.

Children with additional needs are particularly welcome at this drop in. If you have any questions please contact the learning team on   learning@hepworthwakefield.org  or 01924 247398.
