Crown Works Pottery is pleased to announce that we will be offering a series of two-month residencies to potters/ceramicists or sculptors from around the world in 2020.
During a residency you will be given free access to the studio space in London, Bethnal Green. This will include options of working on both electric and our beautiful new kick wheels, as well as hand-building and sculpting opportunities. The access will be 24hrs and 7 days a week. Firings of up to 8 full electric kilns will also be provided and use of our pre-developed glazes. We will also put on a small and informal exhibition of your work within the pottery at the end of your two months stay. You will be able to sell your work if you wish during the show and no money will be taken from the proceeds. As part of the residency we will ask you to teach two two-day weekend workshops, where you will impart some of your making approach to our students and teach them a specially developed course along the lines of your making aesthetic and particular skills. We would also ask that you donate a piece of work made during the residency to the pottery, so that we can add it to our collection to show future students and makers.
