A Visit to Henry Moore's Studio
Thursday 18 October 2018

This visit will take us to Henry Moore’s former home, studios and expansive gardens in the glorious surroundings of Hertfordshire.  We will have a tour of Henry Moore’s house ‘Hoglands’ in Perry Green where he lived with his family for over forty years.  We will also have a tour of his workshops and over 20 of his iconic massive bronze sculptures in the garden settings created by his wife.  Our guided tour will also include Aisled Barn where the artist’s unique tapestries are displayed as well as a special 2018 exhibition “Out of the Block-Henry Moore’s Carvings” looking at Moore’s carving techniques in wood and stone.  We will have lunch at the Visitor Centre and after the tour, a chance to browse the bookstore or relax and enjoy the surroundings before our return to Cambridge.
