The RSN is thrilled to return to the Artisan Fayre which will take place in the Hampton Court Palace East Front Gardens from 17-19 May 2024 — a great family day out to look forward to this spring!

The RSN will teach a 90 minute workshop every day of the Artisan Fayre.  The workshops will take place in our learning studios which are part of the original ‘grace and favour’ Palace apartments, not usually accessible to visitors.  We will teach a Luna Moth design (also known as an American Moon Moth) which has been created by RSN Future Tutor Graduate 2023 Abigail Carter.

These giant silk moths have beautiful lime green coloured wings with a burgundy outline, which Abigail has reimagined in stitch.  You will learn a variety of surface stitches and beginners’ Goldwork techniques.  This is an opportunity to learn back stitch, stem stitch and turkey rug, along with couched gold metal thread and spangles.

This 90 minute Workshop will take place from 11:30am-1:00pm on each day of the Fayre. The cost is £30 per person, including kit. There are only 12 places per day so book your workshop now! 

Friday 17 May, 11:30am-1:00pm

Saturday 18 May, 11:30am-1:00pm
