See, Do & Discover

Try out our Activity Sketchbook created by Illustrator and Designer Lizzie Lomax, free to pick up on arrival at the Ticket Desk.

Use the view finder to explore more outdoors, find some flint along the way and send your pull-out postcard to a friend! This sketchbook will take you on an interactive trip around our site, sharing information about Henry Moore’s art and life and encouraging you to develop your own ideas with prompts to write, draw, make, move and imagine.

In the making of these we’ve taken care to include your feedback from last season and tested the activities out with children too. Our new friend Lizzie is also the creator of SEED Magazeen, for kids who care about the environment.
