Royal School of Needlework

The Royal School of Needlework is the international centre of excellence for the art of hand embroidery based at Hampton Court Palace. It teaches technical hand embroidery from one day courses to three-year BA Degree and Future Tutor levels. It takes commissions and conservation work in its studio and also offers retail through bricks and clicks.

The RSN is dynamic and has bold plans to continue developing both in the UK and internationally and to enhance its online presence with distance learning, digital access to our collection and archive and the repository for stitch through the RSN Stitch Bank.
