The Advanced Diploma course is the icing on the cake of your C&D journey, teaching you a choice of the advanced skills in Box Making, Both Sides Alike or Whitework. The technique you will study is taught by our team of expert tutors, each with a minimum of three years professional training at the RSN.

You must have completed your Certificate and Diploma levels to enter the Advanced Diploma level. As with the Certificate and Diploma courses, you can be flexible in your training with a range of dates and days available to complete the module.

Students who have completed our Certificate and Diploma Courses in Technical Hand Embroidery 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.
