Free Party Animal for Every £25 You Spend this February

Terms and conditions: Spend £25 on pottery and receive a party animal on the house. All pottery items must be paid for in one transaction. Free party animal figurine must be painted on the same day as your qualifying purchase – sorry but we cannot save party animals for you to come back and paint on a return visit, nor can we allow you to return to finish painting an item. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion, or for tickets to adult workshops, birthday parties, large group bookings, corporate events, commission pieces or clay imprints. This voucher has no cash value. Strictly while stocks last. Free party animal figurine must be from the party animal range – Funky Pots will not substitute any other pottery in the event that party animals are no longer available. Offer valid to 28th February 2018.

Penguin Plate Christmas Workshop

 Tuition.

Happy Halloween!

It’s getting spooky here at Funky Pots, and our new Halloween range is sending chills down our spines! We’ve got plenty of gruesome items for you this year – witches, pumpkins, skulls, Frankenstein’s monster, and the Prince of Darkness himself… Dracula. Scary stuff!
