Welcome to the Royal School of Needlework The International Centre
of Excellence for the
Art of Hand Embroidery

Tutors: Helen Jones

Helen returned to adult education after a career as a lawyer.  She graduated from the RSN Future Tutors programme in 2016.  She now has her own business and also teaches for the RSN on the Certificate and Diploma Course, mainly in Rugby and sometimes at Hampton Court, as well as Day classes at Hampton Court, Exeter and Glasgow. 

Helen enjoys working in the RSN Embroidery Studio.  Rather to her surprise, she has become fascinated by aspects of the history of embroidery.  She builds her knowledge by choosing embroidery samples from the archives to research and create classes from which others can enjoy.
