Visit our Embellishment in Fashion Exhibition

We are delighted to open the doors of our latest exhibition Embellishment in Fashion at Hampton Court Palace.  The exhibition has been featured in a wide range of embroidery & craft publications - the one above is from the current issue of Sewing World magazine as 'Exhibition of the month!'

Here's what visitors are saying....

“Such a brilliant presentation and tour.”

Well worth a visit – very enjoyable!”

“I would absolutely recommend the RSN’s Embellishment in Fashion exhibition. If you’ve never attempted hand-embroidery, the pieces on view at the exhibition will inspire you to try.”

"Thank you so much - the tour was extremely interesting and informative."

There are different Tour options to suit all interests including Talk & Tours, Tour & Taster workshops (image left); as well as Curator’s Tours that include rare insights to additional pieces from the RSN Collection.  We also offer bespoke Group Tours. 

Tours start from £16 per person and the exhibition runs until March 2018. 

To book your place and view a diverse range of fashion pieces spanning 250 years, visit the RSN’s website or contact Natalie Thew on +44 (0)20 3166 6939.  

The exhibition is in the RSN’s Embroidery Studio at Hampton Court Palace and only open on set days, so pre-booking is essential.
