Barbara Hepworth studio to get overhaul

Interesting news from the Tate that it is holding a competition for people to come up with ideas about how to use Barbara Hepworth's second studio/workshop in St Ives. The building was formerly a dance hall and cinema but now has Grade II status - Hepworth started using it during the 1960s for her larger works but it hasn't really had anything done to it since her death in 1975, even though it is very central in the town. The idea is to transform it into a community facility as part of a £3.6 million project, hopefully all done and dusted in 2026.
