Fun Pots for Kids


Pottery painting is the perfect activity for entertaining children

Children of all ages love painting pottery. It's wonderful to watch as a child's creation takes shape. From a simple "my favourite colour's blue" to a multi-coloured pattern, your child will love the sense of independence and empowerment that comes from creating their own design and seeing it displayed on the shelf at home. The look of wonder and excitement on their face when their pottery is returned to them glazed, fired and shiny is a joy.

Enjoy some special time with your little ones in the Studio or buy a paint at home kit to get creative in the comfort of your own home (and don't worry - all the paint washes off!) 

How children can enjoy pottery painting

1. Baby footprints

Our special baby hand and footprint service is a much loved and treasured activity. A treasured, unique memory which can be created with our help in the studio or you can do it in the comfort of your home with one of our paint at home kits. With our range of plates, mugs, tiles, clock and bauble those tiny hand and footprints can be captured forever.

3. Children's Parties

Our popular party pottery means a children's party with Fun Pots is something creative, fun and bit different to the usual. Not only does everyone paint their own creative masterpiece but there is also the special party plate. Capturing the birthday boy or girls handprint, turned into an animal of their choice if they wish. Now that is something to keep and look back on!

This can be done at home as well as in the Studio.

4. School Art Projects

We have worked with a number of schools and children's educational/social groups on tile projects and class activities. Whether that has been as a special art project, to commemorate a special occasion, or just to enliven a building; there are so many ways a pottery painting project can develop students creative skills and mental wellbeing. Find out more about how we've worked with schools such as Hassocks Infants, Sheddingdean Community Primary School, Ardingly College, Burgess School for Girls and many more.
