C&D Open Days

Have you often thought about taking the RSN Certificate & Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery, but were not sure if it was for you?  Or perhaps not sure what you would like to do but sewing and embroidery are a passion which you would like to grow new skills for?

Then come along to one of our exciting C&D Open Days.  

The next Open Days will take place at Hampton Court Palace. There will be two time slots of 11am and 2pm for the following dates: 

  • Monday 23 April
  • Friday 8 June
  • Saturday 11th August


We also have Open Days at our satellite schools, taking place in:

RSN Glasgow on Friday 23 March from 10.30am - 12.30pm

RSN Bristol on Sunday 13 May from 10am - 4pm

We know how difficult it can be to juggle diaries so hopefully one of these dates will work with your commitments.  The Certificate & Diploma is a flexible course and offered six days a week at Hampton Court Palace, as well as at our UK satellite venues in Bristol, Rugby, Durham and Glasgow and internationally in Japan and the USA.

Book a place onto one of our Open Days and who knows, you could be starting a brand new embroidery journey for the new year!

The Open Day will include the opportunity to see some Certificate & Diploma work and meet some current or recent students.

Places are limited so to avoid disappointment, please contact us advance.
