The Royal School of Needlework teaches bespoke live and online hand embroidery classes with a number of museums and partners around the UK including the V&A and Fashion & Textile museums in London and the D-Day Story in Portsmouth. Each class is inspired by a current exhibition at the venue.
From time to time we teach bespoke hand embroidery classes at the V&A Museum in London.
Look out for class dates soon.
