Join us in the art of hand embroidery.

From hand embroidering HRH The Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress, an epic 6m x 4m, 3D Game of Thrones embroidery and a designer dress embellished with over 200,000 ostrich feathers, the Royal School of Needlework has worked on a wide array of exciting projects and is a fantastic place to learn.

The Royal School of Needlework was founded in 1872 and continues to teach this beautiful skill and develop its relevance for today.  The RSN offers a range of courses, for beginners through to advanced.   Students can choose to study Day Classes, a Certificate & Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery, a Degree in Hand Embroidery for Fashion, Interiors, Textile Art or the RSN’s Future Tutors programme which trains the teachers of tomorrow.
