About Emi Nimura

After graduating from the International Christian University and Otsuka Textile Design College in Japan, Emi worked as a professional beaded jewellery artist and contributed towards a number of beadwork and bead embroidery books.

Graduating from the RSN Apprenticeship with distinction, she was awarded the Charrington Broderer’s Prize for top apprentice; the Hilda Watson Prize for Silk Shading and the Gold & Silver Wyre Drawer’s Prize for Coronation Goldwork.

From April 2010, Emi has been the RSN’s coordinator in Japan and teaches the Certificate & Diploma Courses in Tokyo and Osaka. Emi has organised two exhibitions of RSN work at the Kitagawa Gallery in Tokyo and she considers that her lifework is to introduce the world of English traditional embroidery to Japanese people and to contribute to a cultural exchange between the UK and Japan.
