PiCATso Watercolour Workshop at Southpaw Cat Cafe - SOLD OUT

I could not anticipate how difficult and hilarious it would be to simply “set up” for a workshop with 10+ cats! If it fits, it truly sits. Oh a piece of paper? Sit. Oh a box that you are trying to unpack? Sit. Oh a glass of paint water? Drink. Oh a jar of paintbrushes? Spill! Oh you’re trying to talk? Let’s whack those toes! It was quite the experience! And we can’t wait to do it again! See: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/573894136/picatso-watercolour-workshop-at-southpaw?ref=shop_home_feat_2
