The Day Class tutor will be Kate Barlow. Kate graduated from the Future Tutors Programme at the RSN with distinction. She now teaches for the RSN and works as a member of the RSN Studio. In 2015, Kate’s Advanced Silk Shaded budgie “Smuggler” was accepted by the Royal Academy of Arts for their annual Summer Exhibition. The piece was also made into a greeting card.

During her time at the RSN so far she has worked on Magna Carta - An Embroidery, designed by Cornelia Parker, on a gown designed by Nicholas Oakwell for the Great Britain Campaign, and on a silk wedding dress designed by L’Wren Scott. Before coming to the RSN, Kate studied costume at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff where she graduated in 2001 with a BA Hons in Theatre Design. Following this she worked as a freelance costume maker and then as part of the Touring Wardrobe department at the Welsh National Opera.
