RSN Summer Embroidery Exhibition at Hampton Court Palace

We will be hosting our annual Summer Exhibition from Tuesday 5 – Sunday 10 July.  Featuring Hand Embroidery projects by our Certificate & Diploma and Future Tutor Students, the exhibition will showcase a variety of techniques including Jacobean Crewelwork, Silk Shading, Black and Goldwork.

Entrance is free. Visitors should enter the exhibition through the RSN Shop which can be accessed via the Governor’s Gate at Hampton Court Palace. The exhibition opens at 10.30am and closes at 4.30pm each day.
Dr Susan Kay-Williams, RSN Chief Executive said:

“We are delighted to be able to hold our annual exhibition and showcase the stunning work from our Students.  They have worked extremely hard this year and we are very proud of what they have achieved.  Our exhibition takes place during the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show so is an ideal opportunity for people to pop in and see our Students’ work close up.”
