After going to the gallery and seeing the tool set up i became very fond of Barbara Hepworth, i found her quote ‘The tools a sculptor uses are his friends, and they become intensely personal to one; the most precious extensions of ones sight and touch’ very fitting to the artistic world however i did think it could be stretched further across art for example the tools a we use in textiles. After this thought came to mind i decided to look into the tools i use as a textiles student and did some photography as part of my Barbara Hepworth research sheet.  I have learned a lot by looking at Hepworth as one of my artists for example, visiting a gallery was a new experience for me and i especially didn’t think i would take so much information from one and find it so interesting and helpful. I would definitely go and visit the gallery again and i am very interested in finding further galleries to intrigue me.
