Level 3 Fashion Design visit Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life


21st February 2022

This month, our Level 3 Fashion Design students visited the Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield.

Over several weeks, the seven groups each visited the gallery to gather inspiration for their Circular Forms project. They’ll be using their research of her art to create their own clothing designs.

Dame Jocelyn Barbara Hepworth was born in Wakefield in 1903. She became internationally famous for her modern sculptures and a central figure in the Modernism art movement. She died in 1975.

It features some of her most celebrated sculptures, alongside rarely seen drawings, paintings and fabric designs. The exhibition also explores how she was inspired by her interests, including music, comprising music, dance, science, space exploration, politics and religion, as well as the events in her personal life.
