About your host, Crown Works Pottery
Crown Works Pottery is based in East London, tucked away in an old Victorian mews, near to Bethnal Green and run by potter Giulietta Hextall.
The Pottery has a small selection of full time makers, all creating bespoke ceramics and developing their practices.
Giulietta runs the studio as a small school, teaching taster, beginner and intermediate throwing classes. All classes are taught by professional full time potters, with a passion for sharing their knowledge of this diverse material. The classes are kept to a limited number of people, eight per session, keeping the classes intimate and allowing for all students to be given sufficient help in a friendly atmosphere. Most classes occur in the evenings during the week, but we also do occasional intensive weekend workshops.
Aprons will be provided, but please don't wear your best clothes as you are likely to get muddy!You will be able to come and pick up your final pieces once they are out of the kiln and have cooled down, usually three weeks after your class, but sometimes this can take longer. This will be arranged over email by Giulietta when your work is ready.
