RSN – International Summer School

22nd April 2022

As we mentioned in All Stitched Up! issue #322, the Royal School of Needlework (RSN) is celebrating their 150th anniversary in 2022.

As well as various celebrations throughout the year, in July and August their hugely popular International Summer School is returning and, for the very first time, is being offered both online and onsite!

Needlework lovers from around the world are invited to join together to share their passion and enjoy the RSN’s world-renowned tuition

You’ll be able to explore a huge variety of techniques and designs, from crewelwork to box making, and canvas work to whitework.

The onsite Summer School is based in Hampton Court Palace, south-west London. Attendees will be able to enjoy the tie in with the celebratory exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in central London entitled ‘150 Years of the Royal School of Needlework: Crown to Catwalk’, which is open until September 4.

Over eight weeks in July and August, expert RSN tutors will teach eight different five-day classes. Many of the classes are based on pieces from the RSN’s unique archive and collection. Classes are limited to 12 places each.  

As part of the event, there will be guided tours of the 150th exhibition as well as the RSN’s own summer exhibition, ‘A Girl’s Education in Stitch’.

If going to London is not an option, the RSN is also offering a mixture of two, three and five-day online classes in July across a range of time zones including Australia/New Zealand/Asia, the Americas and UK/Europe. 

Online classes include crewelwork, blackwork, goldwork, coloured blackwork and mixed media.

Throughout the summer, there will be dedicated online talks with guest speakers and several special events open to all of the RSN International Summer School students.

In 2022 there is no better place to experience world class tuition with like-minded students from the world over, than the RSN International Summer School – all the while enjoying the celebrations for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
