The Morley College Sculpture Department is housed off-site in a lovely well-lit Victorian chapel, Pelham Hall. Our Henry Moore Sculpture Studio has developed an excellent reputation over many years and boasts an impressive provision of machinery, tools and tutoring for most sculptural processes from clay life modelling to bronze casting.
