Helen Jones

Helen returned to adult education after a career as a lawyer.  She graduated from the RSN Future Tutors programme in 2016.  She now has her own business and also teaches for the RSN on the Certificate and Diploma in Technical Hand Embroidery programme, mainly at RSN Midlands and sometimes at Hampton Court, as well as Day classes at Hampton Court, Exeter and Glasgow.

Helen enjoys working in the RSN Embroidery Studio.  Rather to her surprise, she has become fascinated by aspects of the history of embroidery.  She builds her knowledge by choosing embroidery samples from the RSN Archive Collection to research and create classes which others can enjoy.

In 2018 Helen taught a well received class during ‘Orla Kiely: A Life in Pattern’ at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum.
