Perry Green | 11th July 2013
The whole team spent a day out together to charge our inspirational batteries.
Visiting the Henry Moore museum in Perry Green we were inspired by the way Henry Moore lived and worked. Exploring his house and workshop, lingering around in his park we were fascinated by his way of working and finalised sculptures likewise.
