Paint Your Own Pottery

When you arrive at Funky Pots, you will choose an item to paint from our full range of bisque ware that includes figurines, pottery animals, trinket boxes, money banks, decorations, and other contemporary items. We also stock a wide range of mugs, plates, bowls, vases, and teapots for you to decorate and use in your day to day life, giving your household a personal touch. Our prices range from around £2 to £30 all inclusive, so there are no hidden charges. We also serve light refreshments.

Once you have selected your item from our range, you will be seated at a table by one of our friendly staff. One of the Funky Crew will make sure that you are happy with your selection and guide you through the creative process. At this stage your pottery is unpainted and unglazed, waiting for your personal touch. You can choose any number of colours from our range of special non-toxic pottery paints to decorate your item. Then relax, get creative, and have fun! Paint your own personal design to make your item truly unique, and remember that our experienced staff are never far away should you want any help with the artistic process.

Once you are happy with your masterpiece, you will leave it in the care of Funky Pots. Our artist in residence will then glaze and fire your item, and it will look stunning. This magical process takes about a week, after which it will be ready for you to collect.

Kids love pottery painting, and we love it when our customers have fun at Funky Pots. We would like to reassure parents that all our paints are non-toxic and wash out of clothes without a problem. Our staff also clean up the studio after your visit, so please don’t worry about accidentally spilling any paint while you discover the artist inside yourself.

    • Hello!
      Thanks for getting in touch. We usually allocate space in the studio on a first come, first served basis, but if you know a precise time that you would like a table for, then you can just give us a ring and we will save you a space (0115 9811639). Booking is advisable at busy times, such as Saturdays, or if you’re bringing a pushchair with you or if one of you is a wheelchair user 🙂

  2. Hi, me and a couple of friends are doing slimming world and would like to decorate our own plate. How much would it be each plate? Thanks x

    • Hi Hollie! That sounds like a wonderful idea. Our plates are priced from £11 (includes glazing and firing). If you’re thinking of visiting us on a weekend, please remember that you can save yourselves a table by calling ahead on 01159811639.
