We just wrapped another successful school session whereby 5 groomers left with their CFMG certificates in hand. We topped off the 2 week course with a 2-day creative cat workshop. This was the first time we hosted a workshop at the school that was something different than our normal 2 week school session. I am pleased to say it was a great success!
The students had great cats to work on and could do whatever designs they wanted. The class started with instruction and demo time and then the next part of the class involved the students doing their own creative designs on a variety of cats. Many of the cats had already been prepped for creative before hand. A few needed their "foundation" fixed just a bit before getting into the fun stuff.
By the end, we had over a dozen creatively designed cats with their own unique artwork. Most coloring was semi-permanent with a little Blo-Pen or Sprayza providing the finishing touches. Clipper work involved a variety of trimmers, with the students able to try different ones and decide which worked best for them.
You can be sure we'll do another creative cat workshop before the year is through! Be sure to check our Events calendar for that date as well as some of the other workshops we have planned, including a CFMG Refresher Course, a cat show exhibitor workshop, and a CFA Cattery Certification class for inclusion in the Dirty Hair Project.
Here are some of the student's creations from that day:
