New Exhibition Celebrates 30 Years at Hampton Court Palace

New exhibition, Embroidered at the Palace, is open for a limited time, from 12 July – 13 August at Hampton Court Palace.

Showcasing work from our students and Embroidery Studio, it celebrates the 30 year anniversary of the RSN at the Palace.

This special exhibition features a wide range of contemporary embroidery from the RSN’s past and current students, including pieces inspired by Hampton Court Palace.  It also features some photographic images of the unique and memorable projects embroidered by the RSN’s Embroidery Studio over the last 30 years.  Embroidery pieces range from the Moomins and a bird of paradise dress to the chimneys of Hampton Court Palace and even Henry VIII.

The exhibition features over 70 pieces and can be found at the East Front of the Palace, through the Garden Shop.  Entrance is included in the cost of the Palace entry ticket and the exhibition opens from 10am – 5.45pm.  It is only open for a limited time, so don’t miss your chance to see it.  We recommend buying your Entrance Tickets to Hampton Court Palace in advance via their website to get the best price.
