Join us at the RSN International Summer School 2022
The RSN International Summer School is being held in July and August 2022 with a series of special 5-day classes both online and in-person at Hampton Court Palace, plus a range of online, multi-day class itineraries across three different International time zones.
For online classes, you can choose to follow the time zone schedule that suits you best, wherever you are in the world. When booking you will be able to select which classes you wish to attend from those available for your chosen time zone. All sessions are open to everyone — you just might have to get up early or go to bed late!

We will create a stitch party so there will be a Welcome Reception for each group and Exclusive Talks with Guests Speakers – with each Talk available to all those booked on the Summer School regardless of which week or classes you have booked.
For those attending the 5-day classes at Hampton Court Palace there will be some extra special events during the week:
- Tuesday at 4:15pm will be a tea with members of the RSN staff and students on other courses.
- Wednesday will be a visit to the RSN Embroidery Studio after your stitching hours and an opportunity to see the RSN’s exhibition, ‘A Girl’s Education in Stitch’.
- Thursday the stitching day will start slightly earlier, so we can take you after lunch to the Fashion and Textile Museum in London to see our anniversary exhibition, ‘150 Years of the Royal School of Needlework: Crown to Catwalk’ on a guided tour.
To celebrate being part of something truly international and special, every participant will receive a goody bag, including some exclusive items.
Let’s make this a real international party for stitch!
