RSN International Summer School | Something for All!

31st March 2023

We all know that the Royal School of Needlework is an esteemed authority throughout the needlework community for all things education.

Accredited RSN tutors are highly sought after due to their skill and technical excellence.

Did you know that the RSN offers a huge range of courses for everyday stitchers like us, who are looking to further our abilities and discover new techniques?

And the best part is, you don’t have to live locally to participate. In 2023 the RSN have expanded their International Summer School to now provide their world-class lessons for every stitcher, no matter where in the world you may live.


Throughout July and August, RSN expert tutors will teach a variety of techniques across beautiful historical and contemporary designs, for beginners through to advanced level.

With live online classes now specially tailored for students in the Americas and Australasia, along with UK/Europe time zone classes, there has never been a better time to expand your talents.

20 online classes are on offer including Whitework Seahorse, Goldwork Monogram, Metalwork & Beadwork Jubilation, and Ecclesiastical Embroidery, just to name a few.

Many of these classes start in the afternoon and are spread over several days allowing students to stitch during the lessons as well as in their own time between sessions.


For those fortunate enough to attend classes onsite at Hampton Court Palace, the home of the RSN located in south west London, you can choose the Combining Paint & Stitch class, Exploring Drawing & Sources of Inspiration class or create your own Love Letter Case inspired by an 18th century object from the RSN’s extensive collection, amongst many others.

There is also a Hampton Court Palace Sampler class, which students can attend in English or in Japanese. 

New for 2023, the RSN will also be teaching at the Glasgow Art Club in Scotland.

Classes taught in Glasgow include Art Nouveau Sprig and Crewelwork Tree of Life.


The RSN has very kindly extended their early bird special offer to readers of All Stitched Up! if you book by April 10th. You will also receive a saving of £70 when you book two classes and £140 when you book three classes. Plus, you will also get a 10% discount as an RSN Friend.

In addition to all this, there will be special events and dedicated online talks, which students can watch on demand if they miss them live, and every student will also receive an exclusive RSN welcome gift.

Needlework lovers from around the world are invited to join like-minded students to share their passion and enjoy the world-renowned tuition at the RSN International Summer School 2023.
