17th July 2020

The COVID-19 lockdown has caused everyone to rethink how they do things, and the Royal School of Needlework was one of the many institutions that needed to come up with new ways to teach their courses.

But thanks to technology, the willingness of RSN staff and tutors, and three Australian embroiderers who offered to be ‘guinea pigs’, a successful trial of teaching the Certificate and Diploma modules online has just been completed.

The online environment always poses its challenges, but all three students loved it. We should know, as a member of the Inspirations Team was one of the keen embroiderers involved!

Deep in concentration…

With a bit of fine tuning, this step should soon open up many more opportunities for international students to study with this venerated and historical institution.

And now it’s time for yours truly to get back to unpicking that jolly blackwork project which isn’t quite right, in time for the assessment deadline!
