Back by popular demand, we are delighted to announce our return to the USA for our second embroidery Summer School in July 2020.  Bookings open on Wednesday 22 January 2020!

We are delighted to announce the RSN Summer School will be returning to Lexington, Kentucky, USA from Sunday 12 July to Sunday 26 July 2020 for two back-to-back weeks with some of your favourite Tutors returning and some new ones for you to meet, plus new embroidery classes and events.

As well as our five-day ‘full’ sessions (which run over six days), for those for whom a full week may be too long we will also be running four-day ‘short’ sessions running from Thursday to Sunday (although these will be restricted to just 24 people each week).

 

Tutors attending once again include Deborah Wilding, Heather Lewis, Kate Barlow, Helen McCook, Sara Rickards and Zinaida Kazban. New tutors for 2020 include Sara-Jane Dennis, Jen Goodwin, Chrissie Juno Mann, Amy Burt and Helen Richman, plus there will also be two recent graduates from our Future Tutors programme.

In addition, our Chief Executive, Dr Susan Kay-Williams will again be presenting lectures including a ‘show and tell’ with recent donations to the Collection.
