Intensive C&D Courses this Summer

We have a few places left on our Silk Shading and Goldwork Intensive Courses at Hampton Court Palace this July and August.  The Jacobean Crewelwork and Canvas Work/Blackwork courses are already sold out, but we are holding a waiting list.  

The Intensive Courses are very popular with students from abroad and for those who work full-time and able to devote two weeks each year to completing one technique. 

The Intensive Courses are hard work, but students find it extremely rewarding to study amongst like-minded embroiderers in the environment of Hampton Court Palace with access to the RSN’s library.  The dates in Hampton Court Palace are as follows:

  • Jacobean Crewelwork: Monday 25 June - Thursday 5 July 2018
  • Canvas Work / Blackwork: Monday 9 July - Friday 20 July 2018
  • Silk Shading: Monday 23 July - Thursday 2 August 2018
  • Goldwork: Monday 6 August - Thursday 16 August 2018


If you are interested in completing one or more of these modules as part of your Certificate Course, please click here for more information.

We are also running Summer Intensives in our satellite venues as follows:

  • RSN Scotland on 4-14 June
  • RSN Durham on 8-18 May (only a few places left) and 10-20 July
  • RSN Bristol 6-9 June and 26-30 June.
