Open Day at RSN Durham

We will be holding an Open Day at RSN Durham on Saturday 30 September, from 10am to 3pm.   Entrance is free.

We have been teaching our Certificate & Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery in Durham since 2003 and from October will be launching a series of Day Classes.  So for those looking for a new hobby or have always wanted to try hand embroidery, the Open Day is the perfect opportunity to find out more.  RSN Durham is located in the heart of Durham City, by the banks of the River Wear in Fowlers Yard and home to a wide range of creative studios.

Visitors to the RSN Open Day will be able to explore the beautiful hand embroideries on display created by RSN Durham students and hear about the courses on offer. There will also be live demonstrations and RSN Durham Tutors, Tracy A Franklin and Pippa Foulds, will be on hand to answer questions.

RSN Durham is located at 3 Fowlers Yard, Back Silver Street, Durham, DH1 3RA.
