Sculpture Weekend

I have neglected my blog for so long, mainly as blogger doesn't work anymore on my browser! I thought I'd try a post from my phone instead! We recently went for a long weekend break in Yorkshire, we really wanted to go back to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park www.ysp.co.uk which we first visited in 2010 before we had our son. It really is an amazing place! So much to see and beautiful countryside.  Some fabulous Henry Moore's and Barbara Hepworth's whose work I particularly love.
We also went to Hepworth Wakefield for more of the same...

This opened in 2011 so it was our first visit and we all loved it, although Jimmy wanted to touch everything which is not allowed inside the galleries!  There was one Caro sculpture that he could climb in so that was a definite hit! And we all loved this quirky junk sculpture hanging from a crane just outside the walkway to the gallery. It was fun to spot all the different items that he was made from! I like the broom head eyebrows! I think we might try and make our own mini version over the holidays as I have lots of little bits and bobs left over from my 3d illustration days..Summer holidays are here! Going to try and make the most of them before Jimmy starts reception in September..
