Specially designed by Jasmine Pottery Studios to suit everyone from beginners to expert level painters, there are two ceramic cat decoration kits to choose from:

  • Classic Cat Pottery Painting – The kit contains one handcrafted, ceramic, cat-shaped decoration and there is paint to make a tortoiseshell, grey, ginger, tabby, black or white cat, or a mix of any of them.
  • Abstract Cat Pottery Painting* – The kit contains a handcrafted, sitting cat-shaped decoration with four primary paint colours (red, yellow, blue and white) to unleash your inner Picasso.

You can join in with the live craftalong in the Craft for Cats Facebook group from 10am to midday on Saturday 24 February, or catch up later by watching a video recording.

Sign up for yourself or even gift a place to a special cat lover in your life and a kit will be delivered directly to their door.

About your tutor

Your craftalong host, Naomi, set up Jasmine Pottery Studios back in April 2019 when she fully transformed an empty shop space in Wakefield to be a fully functioning pottery studio.

Her love for teaching and getting her hands dirty dates back much further however, as she first started out working as a freelance tutor in adult learning delivering art and pottery workshops. It was during this time that the idea for the studio started to take shape.

Jasmine Pottery Studios is family-run studio that’s passionate about making pottery available for everyone. They believe the therapeutic and uplifting qualities of clay making and painting should be accessible to all ages, abilities and budgets.
