FAQs

We highly discourage you from missing any classes since the entire program is designed to be hands-on intensive. There is also a minimum attendance requirement of 75% of training hours for Singaporean and PRs, and 90% of training hours for international students. If you do not meet the 75% attendance requirement, you will not be eligible to enjoy subsidies nor to sit for the assessment. Make sure you block off your time during your training with us or find an intake option that will ensure you do not miss any classes. You will only wish that you had more time in the class!

Solid color fabric is highly recommended. However please note that you clearly mark which is the face and back of the fabric. If you prefer to get prints, you must get prints that are non-directional and that you can cut either directions. That means if you choose a dinosaur print, you must make sure the dinosaurs are looking at all different directions (up and down, left and right) and not only one direction. It is also advisable to get fabrics that are not too soft and slippery.
