Royal School of Needlework

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

Tutors: Sarah Smith

Sarah joined the RSN Future Tutors programme following a career in publishing and raising her two children. A founding member of a patchwork and quilting group, Sarah consolidated her love of needlework through a three-year City and Guilds Certificate in Embroidery at Missenden Abbey. She draws inspiration from all things historical, making the RSN's location at Hampton Court Palace the ideal place to work.

Sarah has taught for the RSN in the UK and in Ireland, on the BA (Hons) Degree as well as RSN workshops at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She has been involved in a variety of RSN projects, including demonstrations for Burberry's Makers House in partnership with The New Craftsmen, The Hardhome Embroidery produced for HBO's Game of Thrones television drama series, and work for an evening gown designed by Nicholas Oakwell Couture for the GREAT Britain campaign.
