Winter Gathering featuring a workshop with Maisie Pritchard

12 December 2023 / 6.30pm - 8.30pm

This event is exclusively for Castlefield Gallery Associates

This is an in person event at Castlefield Gallery 

Join us for a winter celebration featuring a collaborative workshop led by artist Maisie Pritchard.

Castlefield Gallery Associates are invited to join us at the gallery to celebrate a fantastic year and look ahead to new things to come! In addition to the opportunity to bring our community together for seasonally appropriate drinks and nibbles, artist Maisie Pritchard will be leading a collaborative workshop throughout the evening.

Maisie’s workshops explore the intersections between artistic production, design, and play, producing objects that sit somewhere between sculpture and functional or decorative design. By actions of throwing, sticking and moulding, a collaborative work will appear throughout the evening!

Maisie Pritchard is a visual artist living in Manchester with a studio at Paradise Works in Salford. She has an active role in the North West as an artist-facilitator, having worked with organisations such as LeftCoast and Portraits of Recovery. Maisie’s practice is multifaceted, yet always based around the use of materials and making. She is interested in the juncture between artistic production and design, and how these two areas can crossover to generate functional and interactive sculpture or decorative design objects. She enjoys working collaboratively with the public to make playful, useful or meaningful artworks. Most recently, this has taken place through public workshops that incorporate teaching, sharing and exchanging creative skills and making processes.

Selected works include a community project with the National Festival of Making, and a collaborative making project commissioned by A Modest Show, the collateral programme to British Art Show 9. Recently, she received an Early-Mid Career Award from The Haworth Trust Scholarship Programme.
