Lecture with the Royal School of Needlework

March 25, 2015 @ 2:00 pm


Bath in fashion

RSN Chief Executive, Dr Susan Kay-Williams delivers lecture on their connections with fashion –

In collaboration with The Royal High School, Bath

The Royal School of Needlework may be best known for its work for interiors, churches and state occasions but it has also had a role in embellishing items for fashion. The RSN’s Chief Executive, Dr Susan Kay-Williams, will present an illustrated lecture on the RSN’s involvement in embellishing items as one-off bespoke pieces and will highlight work by its Studio from the 19th century to the 21st, including work by degree students. Working on high profile assignments like the Sarah Burton Dress for The Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress or on a collection for Savile Row’s Patrick Grant, they keep the traditional art of embroidery very much alive. RSN offer a degree level course, the only one of its kind in Europe with a focus on design and concept based at Hampton Court Palace and inspire people to improve their technique or even learn a new skill with their hundreds of day courses
