Having become interested in the idea of weaving, Hilary studied tapestry weaving with tutor Joan Droop in Surrey, before taking a City and Guilds Creative Textiles course. It was during this time that Hilary began working on table and floor looms. Hilary has also teaches Spinning, Weaving, Felt making, Braid making and Locker hooking and holds an Adult Teaching Certificate.
