Daytime

This is a one day introductory class, where you will learn the very basics of throwing on the potters wheel. This will include weighing and preparing balls of clay before you start, then the basics of the wheel - from centering your clay, pulling, shaping and working with your tools, beginning to learn the techniques of throwing bowls and cylinders.

This is a fun and quick way to introduce yourself to throwing on the wheel and is suitable for complete beginners.

It will be messy and fun and is a great way to find out if you would like to do more.

Expect to keep anywhere between 1-5 pieces, depending on what happens when you are throwing! Each piece will be bisque fired for you and then fired again in a glaze firing with a tin white glaze.

Your pieces will be ready for pickup usually within three weeks of your class, but sometimes longer. Pick up will be arranged via Giulietta who runs the studio.

There will be a maximum of eight people attending this class.

Each person has their own dedicated potters wheel.

I had a great day on this one-day course and wished I'd signed up for a longer course! Simon was great at teaching and giving everyone individual attention.

This is a really good pottery class. Our teacher was a lovely girl (who I can't remember the name of!) she's super friendly and helpful and really good at showing and helping everyone. The class sizes are small which is great. A totally chilled workshop were you feel super comfortable and relaxed throughout. I'd deffinitly recommend

Luckily, I was part of a small class which meant the day was very hands on with a lot of tuition. The studio was a lovely a sight and the teacher was brilliant! We managed to get 6 of the items we made fired. Would definitely do it again and would recommend to anyone wanting to try pottery!

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.
