Hilary Charlesworth began spinning her own yarn nearly 30 years ago and in those days used the hand-spun yarn for knitting and crochet. 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. A member of the IfL and the British Tapestry Group, Hilary also accepts commissions and sells, exhibits and teaches around the UK.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
