Hilary has a woodworking workshop in Norfolk where she designs, makes and restores. She works closely with her clients on bespoke projects from staircases though to kitchens bespoke cabinets and shelving.
Hilary started her training in April 2017 at the International Boatbuilding Training College, completing the joinery course with Ian Cook. She was delighted to be offered a bursary from IBTC to complete the full Boat Building Course, during this time Hilary was also granted a financial award from the Oxford University Marine Technology Trust for her commitment.
Hilary progressed greatly on the course achieving distinctions for her work. She particularly enjoyed the more challenging and creative parts of the course: for example she designed and made a rudder and tiller for a Columbian dinghy. Hilary also enjoyed learning a range of techniques such as steam bending timber and wood carving. The skills Hilary acquired have gave her a great sense of freedom and confidence in her work
