Join RSN Tutor Kate Barlow for a variety of Day Classes.  Places are already filling up, so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

You can choose to step into 'Spring' with this stunning design and Introduction to Blackwork class on 3 May.


If you wish to further your skills in Silk Embroidery, why not join our intermediate Floral Motif class on 6 May inspired by 17th century tabbed gauntlet gloves. Students will stitch in silk floss on silk satin with gold wires and spangles. Long and Short, Laid Work, French Knots along with Couched Gold Wires will all be covered.


We are also running a two day class on 8 & 9 May focusing on this elegant 'Carousel Horse' which will be brought to life with Silk Shading and Goldwork.
