Gain a higher standard in your hand embroidery with the RSN Certificate and Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery course (C&D).  We teach our C&D course both Onsite and Online.

Our Online Certificate & Diploma tuition is going from strength to strength and, in response to popular demand, we are now teaching new starters online, from across the world.  New students to the C&D must register here.   If you are a current student, simply book as usual via Bookeo. 

The Certificate & Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery is taught onsite at Hampton Court Palace, as well as other UK satellites across the country, Bristol, Rugby, Durham and Glasgow, and internationally in Japan and in the USA. (We are following the latest Covid Government guidelines.)

Students who have completed our C&D course have gone on to use their skills as designers and embroiderers on private and public commissions including community textile projects, work for churches, cathedrals and religious buildings as well as in fashion. You can browse the work of our 2021 and 2020 Graduates here.

View our 2022 Graduate work from 6-9 July, 10am to 4pm, during the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. No pre-booking is required, entry is free and through the RSN Shop at the East Front Gates.

I enrolled on the course because I was planning my early retirement. The course is rich, creative and inspirational and it’s just amazing what you can achieve.
