Auburn Claire Lucas

Prior to her studies at the RSN, Auburn won a First Class Degree in Historical Costume for Film and Theatre. She also completed an Apprenticeship with a Savile Row Tailor, where she still works part time alongside working as a freelance costumier.

In 2016 Auburn was awarded a scholarship by the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and was named ‘Student of the Year’ on the RSN Future Tutors programme.

Throughout her time at the RSN Auburn worked on numerous high-profile collaborations such as with Burberry’s ‘Maker’s House’, in partnership with the New Craftsmen, Nicholas Oakwell Couture’s feather gown for the GREAT Britain Campaign and renowned artist Cornelia Parker’s ‘Magna Carta (An Embroidery)’.

As well as teaching Day Classes and on the Certificate & Diploma for Technical Hand Embroidery Summer Intensive Programme at Hampton Court Palace, Auburn has also taught for the RSN at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, The British Library, the Knitting & Stitching Shows in London and Dublin, and at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum during their ‘Night and Day: 1930’s Fashion and Photographs’ exhibition (2018 & 2019).

Auburn is the RSN Tutor for the successful RSN Online Course to Whitework which launched in September 2018.
