RSN Online Classes and Tuition launch!

1st May, 2020

The RSN Education team has been working together with our Tutors to develop a teaching program in the virtual world.

Throughout the process the underlying thread has been to protect the quality of our teaching at the highest technical standard which the RSN is known for throughout the world.

Today, we are launching one-to-one Online Lessons for UFO, WIP and new projects. This is a great way to encourage you to complete some unfinished kits, to pick up a new project you need guidance on or to start a new kit whilst exploring a new technique!

We are offering a 10% discount when you purchase your kit from the RSN Online Shop for all lessons taken before 31 May, which is a perfect opportunity to try a new skill and to start your hand embroidery journey with us. Just provide your proof-of-purchase when booking.

We are also extremely excited to launch our first RSN Online Day Class, ‘Introduction to Embroidery: Bright Rainbow taking place on Thursday 14 May, which we have brought forward as the class had originally been timetabled for the autumn term.

This online ‘Introduction to Embroidery’ class is suitable for anyone, even if you have never picked up a needle. The rainbow is a wonderful symbol of hope, especially during these challenging times and, on completion, the rainbow can be kept in its hoop to display in your window, to show your support for our wonderful key workers.

Feedback from Jane, from Greater London, who has taken an Online Lesson to finish a UFO:

“I agree that I felt nervous to stitch and actually all of the Tutor’s help was invaluable. She reinvigorated my interest in two kits that I had abandoned. She gave me really useful hints and tips and encouraged me not to be so hide bound about my attitude to embroidery by thinking outside the box by using different stitches if I didn’t like the ones in the kit and also reminded me how good the RSN Essential Stitch Guides are.

I came away feeling the way I do when I have attended a Day Class, full of enthusiasm to finish. However when the enthusiasm wanes, the thought that I could book an online lesson for other kits makes me really happy.

What I hadn’t bargained for was how therapeutic I found this. It was lovely to have one-to-one attention doing something I like doing and getting professional advice.”
