Mathew said: “As a primary school teacher who was becoming increasingly frustrated and disillusioned with teaching, I was starting to think about and seek other professions that I would suit. So the idea of becoming an embroiderer and being able to teach something I was passionate about, was thrilling.
“The intense nature of the course and the learning environment of Hampton Court Palace means the Future Tutors programme is exactly what I hoped the course would be and will provide me with a new career I am passionate about. I relish the thought of working within the RSN, both teaching and in the Embroidery Studio, being able to continue to learn from excellent practitioners with a wealth of knowledge.”
