*  This class is EXCLUSIVE to the RSN  *

Please note this is an Exclusive RSN/Royal Collection Trust Partnership Class to be held at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace on Thursday 15 February 2024.  

Join us for an RSN Experience event in partnership with Royal Collection Trust and embroider this stunning motif inspired by a key portrait of King Henry VIII now on display at the acclaimed exhibition, Holbein at the Tudor Court at the Queen's Gallery Buckingham Palace.

Your day will begin with a highlights tour of the exhibition, led by Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings and exhibition curator, Kate Heard. Kate will showcase some her favourite portraits, both drawings and paintings, on display, including the iconic depiction of King Henry VIII which inspired the exquisite motif designed especially for this course.

During the class, RSN Tutor, Zinaida Kazban will teach you all the steps to embroider this striking design based on an image of embroidery from the portrait which captures elegance and opulence of the embroidery work in Tudor garments.

In the portrait, King Henry wears a gold doublet decorated with elaborate scrollwork resembling interlocked hearts with gold leaves. The motifs are embroidered over the King's chest and sleeves and adorned with large precious stones.

Your motif will incorporate a combination of costume embroidery techniques to replicate the raised relief seen on Henry VIII's garment. This includes creating corded outlines, sheer appliqué, and elements of Goldwork.

This class is suitable for all levels and your kit will include everything you require to complete the project after the class. You may like to bring your own magnifiers but please do not bring scissors as you will be able to borrow ring frames and scissors on the day.

Holbein at the Tudor Court celebrates the work of Hans Holbein, one of the most talented artists of the 16th century.  From his arrival in England in search of work he rose to royal favour and was chosen to paint the portraits of Henry VIII, his family and leading figures, among them Anne Boleyn and Sir Thomas More.

By his death, Holbein’s work was as admired by his contemporaries as it is today. His portraits inspired the next generation of artists in their depictions of Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. Find out more about the show HERE. You will be able to visit the exhibition after your class ends until the gallery closes at 5.30pm.
