This course has already taken place.

Your day at the Royal School of Needlework will include the Stories in Stitch Tour plus a half day taster embroidery class.

The tour will last for 1.5 hours (seating is available) and begins with an illustrated lecture from a senior member of staff, giving historical context and information about the Royal School of Needlework.  The Stories in Stitch Exhibition Tour then takes place for the final hour when our volunteer guides will show visitors around our main Studio rooms. 

Our Stories in Stitch exhibition will showcase a wide range of hand embroideries in Appliqué, Stumpwork and Raised Embroidery. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in these three enchanting techniques which lend themselves so perfectly to the world of storytelling.

After lunch you will join Tutor Kate Cross who will guide you through stitching. Tours commence at 11am and the class will finish at 4pm.
