In this Platinum Jubilee year, join us on our embroidery course held in collaboration with the Royal School of Needlework. This one-day course is led by RSN tutor Helen McCook and takes inspiration from The Queen's Robe of Estate, which was embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework, and the Coronation Dress. The course includes a private tour to see the Dress and Robe of Estate with the exhibition curator, Caroline de Guitaut. 

The motif you will create has been designed in silver and platinum tones of metal and beads to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee and includes accents of diamanté and pearl.

This class is suitable for all levels of skill from beginner to advanced. Included in the ticket cost is your embroidery kit, which will include everything you require to complete the project. 

Book your ticket on the Royal School of Needlework's website. You will be redirected to the event page on the Royal School of Needlework's website. 

Please note that your ticket is for a one-day class and you will need to select either 13th or 14th September when you make your booking.
