Embroidered at the Palace Exhibition

Come and see Embroidered at the Palace.

Open all week until 13 August at Hampton Court Palace, our latest exhibition showcases work from our students and Embroidery Studio, and celebrates the 30 year anniversary of the RSN at the Palace.

This special exhibition features a wide range of contemporary embroidery from the RSN’s past and current students, including pieces inspired by Hampton Court Palace.  It also features some photographic images of the unique and memorable projects embroidered by the RSN’s Embroidery Studio over the last 30 years.  Embroidery pieces range from the Moomins and a bird of paradise dress to the chimneys of Hampton Court Palace and even Henry VIII.

RSN Chief Executive, Dr Susan Kay-Williams commented: “The Royal School of Needlework was founded in 1872 and moved from Kensington, London to Hampton Court Palace in 1987.  The exhibition captures contemporary work from our different courses and highlights some of the exciting and fascinating projects completed at the Palace.  We are delighted to be able to share all these wonderful pieces and stories with visitors to the Palace and give a snapshot of life at the RSN.”

The exhibition features over 70 pieces and can be found at the East Front of the Palace, through the Garden Shop.  Entrance is included in the cost of the Palace entry ticket and the exhibition opens from 10am – 6pm.  It is only open for a limited time, so don’t miss your chance to see it.  We recommend buying your Entrance Tickets to Hampton Court Palace in advance via their website as this is cheaper.
