Certificate IV in Millinery

“Studying Millinery at MFI was incredible. I had the pleasure of working in a small class of 8 and had hands on training with an industry professional, who gave insight into what it’s like to work within millinery and design. We learnt how to hand stitch and hand shape hats from start to finish and documented visual journal to explain our creative process. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at MFI  and feel excited to use my new skill set in the future.” Kate Doherty, Certificate in Millinery
