RSN Degree Awards Show

On Thursday 12 May the RSN played host to one of the highlights in our year, the RSN Degree Awards Show. Students from our BA(Hons) in Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors and Textile Art turned out for a stunning showcase that celebrated their extraordinary efforts over the past year. Guests were treated to a drinks reception as they explored the work on display in our bespoke studio apartments at Hampton Court Palace. We had the honour of welcoming Michele Carragher, Principal Costume Embroider for HBO’s Game of Thrones as our special guest to help present the awards.

Angie Wyman, Degree Course Leader at the Royal School of Needlework, said: “We are very proud of our students and the quality of the work they have produced. This year we have been delighted to work on a range of projects in association with Game of Thrones, couture design houses and textile artists. We were thrilled to have Michele Carragher to be our special guest and want to thank all of our students, sponsors and supporters who have contributed to this event.”

The RSN would like to thank; University for the Creative Arts, The Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, The Worshipful Company of Broderers,  Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers, The Worshipful Company of Needlemakers, NADFAS and RSN Friends for sponsoring the student awards.
