Helen McCook – (Embroidery)

Professional textile artist, designer and embroiderer, established expert at the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace, very highly thought-of amongst embroiderers.

A unique opportunity to develop skills with the help of one of the UK’s most respected Tutors. Helen is in such demand she only visits once a year, usually with a couple of back-to-back courses. Get instruction from an RSN standard teacher, whatever your level of ability. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Because we now run more embroidery courses at Higham, there are now spaces for people wishing to get on Helen’s courses – so, if you’ve been waiting in vain for past years, you need wait no more!
