When booking into a Mollies Make & Create workshop or class:
Yes, you can cancel or transfer your booking to another class. The following transfer, cancellation and refund policy applies for all workshops/classes:
A shanked button has a plastic or metal loop on the back for tying with twine or cotton.
These types of buttons come in two types, ready-to-use or self-covering. Self-covering buttons mostly used in upholstery work.
Each student will have use of a work-station and tools for your class. This includes items such as a stapler, scissors, needles, etc. If you wish to bring tools such as your own fabric scissors etc, make sure they are easily identifiable.
Most headboard in our classes have between 6-10 buttons, depending on the size of the headboard. If you are using self-covered buttons (ie: buttons that you cover in fabric) please cover them before class if possible.
The ideal order to take classes are as follows:
Only the P1 Beginners and Headboard workshops are taught at our satellite locations, the other classes are at Mollies HQ in Papakura, Auckland.
The P1 and P2 Beginners workshops have been designed to teach a certain curriculum of essential upholstery techniques in a compact time frame. Think of these as a kick-starter programme.
The 1-day upholstery workshop is like an open upholstery day for existing students. They are held on the same weekend as the 2-day chair workshop, and is great for students who want to continue up-skilling, or who do not have the space or tools at home to work on their own projects.
In most classes you will require light - medium UPHOLSTERY GRADE fabric, unless otherwise stated. Sorry, none of our classes are suitable for stiff &/or thick fabrics including vinyl, leather and canvas.
