Fun Pots Fundraising

You might have already heard but Fun Pots is 15! Can you believe it?! It was so much fun to celebrate our birthday a couple of weeks ago with our friends and some delicious cake made by our very own talented Louise. We were also thrilled to raise over £800 for charity’s Headcase Cancer Trust and St Peters and St James Hospice. 
Last Friday a familiar face from our party popped back into the studio to present Wendy from St Peter and St James Hospice with the fundraising cheque. Miss Fox, who was our special guest and party entertainment from puppet theatre company Rust and Stardust Productions, did an excellent job of handing over the donation. Wearing her best dress, Miss Fox even managed to match with Wendy’s outfit!  

Both our Fun Pots team and Miss Fox were honoured to be part of supporting and continuing the amazing work St Peter and St James Hospice do. 

Just Keep Painting…

The summer heat wave has hit and so has our new Fun Pots window! We always love planning, sketching and painting our window for each season. Every design begins with a team brainstorm where we sketch out all our different ideas. For this summer window we thought about mermaids, pirates and beach huts before deciding to swim with our sea idea.

This year’s fishy theme was created by Katie with some help from one of our very own fantastic Fun Potter, Mia. It all started with some sponge shapes and our special window paint. Our fish friends were then joined by their painted sea creature pals to create our underwater world. But our window wouldn’t have been complete without the doorway diver! With the help of Mia and her painting skills our interactive diver came to life – perfect for peeking through and taking pictures! 

Why not follow our fish and pop into the Studio to cool down  and enjoy a relaxing paint this Summer. Our shelves are crammed with exciting pieces just waiting for you to get creative with!

Fun Pots 15th Birthday Celebrations

We celebrated our birthday with friends, whilst fundraising for St Peter and St James’ Hospice and Headcase Cancer Trust.

 

We would like to thank everyone who who joined us on the night to support our fundraiser in memory of our dear friend and co-founder Sue Williams. We would also like to thank those who generously donated prizes for the raffle, pledged money and painted wish tokens to raise money for Sue’s nominated charities.
