About Hilary

I grew up a craft kid in southern Minnesota and was sewing by 5 years old. Ever since, I have seized every opportunity to continue to build my skills and experiences in the world of costumes. I earned a BFA in Theatre Design & Technology with an emphasis in costumes, which opened my eyes to the world of Costume Design and Pattern Making. I have worked in film production, full time in a costume shop, as a freelance designer and maker of custom pieces, and I even got to go on an international tour with Grover and the rest of the Sesame Street Gang. I recently rounded out my qualifications by earning an MFA in Theatre (Costume Emphasis), which really made me discover how much I love teaching and passing on the ability to create.

Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to teach in many different circumstances: lecture halls to costume shops, backstage during a show, and (my favorite) teaching one-on-one. I love discovering how different brains tick and figuring out the best way to communicate the information. Sewing is one of those skills that once things start clicking, the sky is the limit.

So much of art and so much of creating is being able to see 'it', whatever 'it' is in that moment. Through thousands of hours of practice, research, studying, creating, and critique (with insightful teachers), I have learned the questions to ask and the statements to make to encourage growth in learning and creating.

Please feel free to contact with any questions and to schedule lessons.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Theatre

I have earned a BFA as well as an MFA in Theatre with a Costume Concentration. In addition to my formal education I have worked in Theatre around the nation as well as a bit internationally. As an active theatre maker and collaborator I am well versed in the breadth and depth of the Theatre world on whole. I have taught the individual student all the way up to a University course.
