Your day at the Royal School of Needlework will include Faces & Figures Exhibition Tour plus a half day taster embroidery class and kit.

In the morning you will see the exhibition. The tour will last for 1.5 hours (seating is available) and begins with an illustrated lecture from a member of staff or tutor, giving historical context and information about the Royal School of Needlework. The Tour then takes place for the final hour when our volunteer guides will show you around the exhibition in our working Studio rooms.

In the afternoon you will join RSN Tutor, Helen Jones, who will guide you through stitching this eye-catching Goldwork motif inspired by the exhibition. The symbol of the Eye of Horus is associated with protection and good health. During the class you will learn to apply padding and kid, to couch different types of gold thread and to apply small gold thread beads known as ‘chips’.
