'Embroider a Selfie' - an art & design project for schools.

The RSN, with the support from the Worshipful Company of Girdlers, is launching a special schools initiative: ‘Embroider a Selfie’.

The pilot project is aimed at Secondary Schools and focused on Years 7 & 8. Teachers can bid for their school to be included. Each school selected for the project will receive a kit of threads, fabrics, needles and other stitch equipment along with an informative guide illustrating how RSN Degree Students have embroidered their own selfies. 

For more information about how you can apply for your school to be a part of this programme, please visit the 'Embroider a Selfie' page of our website.
