Graduating from the RSN’s Future Tutors Programme in 2022, Amanda has a Degree in Two-Dimensional Design in 1997 and worked as a graphic designer for 20 years including working as a communications officer for a Primary School.
Amanda wanted to bring her love of design, stitching, and teaching together and so a second career as a teacher of Hand Embroidery began.
During the course she has assisted teaching on RSN Day Classes, Family Stitch workshops, on the Summer Intensive Certificate & Diploma Programme and International Summer School at Hampton Court Palace as well as workshops at the Knitting and Stitching show in Alexandra Palace.
Amanda is passionate about how embroidery can benefit people’s wellbeing and is looking forward to meeting and enthusing many adults and children’s stitching journeys.
In 2023, Amanda was honoured to be part of the Embroidery Studio team at the Royal School of Needlework who worked on the Anointing Screen for the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
