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 also 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 of eight per session, this keeps the classes intimate and allows all students to be given sufficient help in a friendly atmosphere. Most classes occur in five week blocks, both in the day and evenings during the week. We also do occasional intensive weekend workshops, as well as one day workshops.

If you are interested in organising a private group class, for work or for fun, please get in touch with possible dates and times, plus a description of whether you would prefer hand-building (6 max) or wheel thrown tuition (8 max).

In addition to classes, if you are a more experienced maker, there is also the possibility to sign up to our evening practice sessions, having contacted Giulietta before hand, to make sure you are at a sufficient level.
