Helen Richman

Helen Richman regularly teaches embroidery classes at the RSN and has taught Day Classes across the UK as well as in the United States and Canada. Her embroidery journey began when she joined the Royal School of Needlework and completed the three-year apprenticeship, gaining expert knowledge in many fields of hand embroidery.

Helen is a member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and has sold her embroidered art work in local galleries, as well as online. She has completed several high profile commissions including one from the Royal Mail and also designs and sells her own range of embroidery kits, including the Hampton Court Palace Postcard available from the RSN Shop.
