Cardboard Dinnerware by Maisie Pritchard at Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Wigan

Posted on 16 July 2022

Cardboard Dinnerware Workshops

3 & 4 Sept, 11 – 3pm

Paradise Works, E Philip St, Salford, M3 7LE

A two-part workshop with Maisie Pritchard sees participants create together. Individuals learn and make across two sessions, to create an item for a ‘cardboard dinnerware set’ as a new collaborative sculptural work, followed by a viewing event and exhibition space.

Maisie has developed a new material through her sculptural practice, through the forming of paper pulp and cardboard into clay form – and will teach her methods of making in these two sessions. The project will explore the design and making process by giving low value materials, such as paper and cardboard, a new lease of life by transforming them into sculptural design objects as abstract and playful pieces of ‘dinnerware’.

When completed the objects forge an absurd or imaginary artists dinner table which will be displayed at Paradise Works and Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Wigan as an installation.
