Be race day ready. 

Do you love fashion and also have an interest in felting?  In this course you will have the opportunity to design and create your own Fashions on the Field  outfit , just in time for the Melbourne Cup.  You will create a garment and your own embellished felt hat in the style and colour of your choice. 

This course is split into two parts:

Students can choose to complete just one or both parts. 


Students will need to bring:

  • Pens, pencil and ruler
  • Notebook 
  • 1 commercial pattern 
  • Approx. 3 metres of fabric for your final garment (this will be discussed once the course starts)
  • Machine sewing thread if required
  • Any zips, buttons or elastic that you will use 
  • Pattern tracing fabric as required 
  • Towel
  • Spray bottle
  • Hat (if choosing not to create your own felt hat) 



Upon successful completion students will receive  Statement of Attainment.
