The Body as a Vessel – Process-Led Workshop

Wed 22nd September 2021 1:45pm – 5pm Co-work space : Gateshead

Short Notice Event!

The Body as a Vessel – Process-Led Workshop
With artist whatsthebigmistry

Priya Mistry invites you to come to the old NewBridge on Gateshead High Street and undertake a process-led workshop involving clay.

Priya has been thinking about vessels, space, new starts, experiences and vacancy and would like to share and develop ideas during an open-ended, tactile and imaginative workshop.

Priya is on residency at the recently vacated NewBridge in Gateshead. The residency has been postponed several times due to the pandemic and building move and now coincides with a period of change as NewBridge moves to The Shieldfield Centre and prepares to reopen.

The workshop takes place at NewBridge’s old Gateshead building.

You don’t need to stay for the entire duration, but please aim to arrive for the start time.

The workshop runs 1:45pm – 5pm

Please wear a mask and the venue is equipped with sanitiser.

Workshop is open to all.


whatsthebigmistry is Priya Mistry, multidisciplinary artist, socially engaged practitioner and creative producer straddling visual, performance and live art. Mistry’s practice adds to discourse on topics of mental health/neurodiversity, feminist politics, identity, sex and queerness, whilst deconstructing language, exploring  sensory/non-word based vocabularies.
