St Ives & The Barbara Hepworth Museum
'Finding Trewyn Studio was a sort of magic’, wrote Hepworth. ‘Here was a studio, a yard and garden where I could work in open air and space'. This sentiment continues still today, as the Barbara Hepworth Museum preserves and reflects the life and works of Hepworth, allowing visitors to see the studio and garden much as they were when she lived and worked there.
All the above excursions are suggested.
