Maker's bio

I am a mixed media textile artist with a BA (hons) degree in Textiles, specialising in Embroidery. I have been working as a professional artist for 28 years, and work from my studio in Nether Green, Sheffield. I love teaching and helping others gain confidence through creating. In experimenting with embroidery and mixed media textiles, my aim is to inspire, encourage and support students from beginners to those with experience. I also love baking, gardening and have three cats.

Allison Carter reviewed: Free-machine embroidery classes with Dawn Ireland

"I loved this course! The instructor, the materials available, and the setting made for a day that felt like a retreat. I was really pleased with what I made, and I had a great day drinking tea and eating cake in a beautifully decorated workshop. Dawn is fabulous and helpful. I would jump at the chance to go again."

Dawn Ireland Textile Artist responded:

" Thanks for your lovely review Allison. So pleased you had a great day. Hope to see you again! "

Jill reviewed: Free-machine Embroidery Workshops in Sheffield S11

"I joined this day course in free-embroidery as a complete beginner. I wasn’t even very confident using my machine. Dawn was very encouraging and supportive. She has an excellent supply of materials for course members to use and provides lots of examples of work that she has done for inspiration. I’ll need to practice much more before I can produce anything I’m happy with but I now know the basics and am looking forward to further experimentation at home. "

Dawn Ireland Textile Artist responded:

" Hi Jill, Thanks for your review. I’m glad you are looking forward to experimenting further with free-machine embroidery."

"A warm and friendly welcome by Dawn which set the mood for the whole day. Dawn was patient and interested in each of our individual projects, supportive without being prescriptive. I loved the studio and there was everything I could possibly need available to use. "

" Hi Joan, Thanks for your lovely review of the workshop. I’m pleased you loved the studio. Best wishes Dawn "

Jayne McConkey reviewed: Free-machine Embroidery Workshops in Sheffield S11

"A great day - with the right amount of instruction to get us started, but then complete freedom to play and be creative on our own projects, but with constant presence / support for when we needed it. So much fun to play, and in a studio full of resources and inspiration in every nook. And there was homemade cake!"

Dawn Ireland Textile Artist responded:

" Hi Jayne, Thanks for your review. I’m really pleased you enjoyed the workshop, it was lovely to see you at the studio again. Best wishes Dawn "
