Online Learning Coming Soon

We're excited to announce that RSN hand embroidery courses are now available online at

In partnership with SewandSo we have created a unique online learning platform that will allow you to take complete courses from the comfort of your own home.

The site features two initial courses, Introduction to Jacobean Crewelwork (image top left) and Introduction to Blackwork (image below), taught by RSN Tutors Deborah Wilding and Helen McCook respectively.

View the trailer for the Introduction to Jacobean Crewelwork Class to learn how to stitch the beautiful floral design above. Cost is £120 (plus p&p)

View the trailer for the Introduction to Blackwork and learn how to make this wonderful Puffin. Cost is £110 (plus p&p).

The programme uses market-leading online learning technologies with video instruction, step-by-step written and photographic guides, the ability to interact with other students on each course, to ask questions and share individual progress. Each course will include an exclusive kit of materials so that students can follow each lesson at home and create a beautiful piece of embroidery.

A further five courses will launch throughout 2018.
