Nicola Fairhurst

Graduating from the RSN’s Future Tutors programme in 2019, Nicola joined the course after a successful career as a community Pharmacist. Following a series of RSN classes she was inspired to change direction and  make her hobby into a new career. During the Future Tutors course, she received the Clothworkers’ Award for top student and was selected for the prestigious RSN-Lady Anne’s Needlework New Talent Programme sponsored by The Crewel Work Company.

Nicola has taught classes for the RSN in the UK & Ireland and has assisted on the Certificate & Diploma Summer Intensive programme at Hampton Court Palace.  She loves giving more people the opportunity to discover, learn and produce beautiful hand embroidery. Nikki also hopes to be able to introduce stitchers to some of the less commonly found embroidery techniques.

In 2023, Nicola was honoured to be part of the Embroidery Studio team at the Royal School of Needlework who worked on a number of items for the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla, including the Anointing Screen and Chairs of State.
