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.

jenny laird reviewed: Hand embroidery classes with Dawn Ireland

"I am loving Dawn Irelands Hand Embroidery course. With basic knowledge of the stitches we are coming up with so many ways to be creative with them - who would have thought that chain stitch could do so much. Its relaxing and absorbing just to sit and sew with good company and a studio full of inspiration. "

Tamsin locke reviewed: Free-machine Embroidery Workshops in Sheffield S11

"I had the most relaxing 6 hours in such a long time! Dawn is a fabulous teacher, I learnt so much from her instruction and now feel much more confident in using the machine to draw and create appliqué pictures. The studio is bright, airy and full of Dawn's inspirational pieces of work. Would wholeheartedly recommend this course (well worth the long drive from Harrogate!) and will be booking on again. "

Margaret Bennett reviewed: Hand embroidery classes with Dawn Ireland

"A delightful class of inspirational, mindful sewing. We have been going through the basic stitches but learning how to use them creatively. Dawn encourages us to be playful and once we have learnt the rules, how to break them. It is a great course for both beginners and people like me who learnt how to embroider at school many decades ago. Dawn is a great teacher and always makes us feel most welcome with tea and biscuits."

Janet Leitch reviewed: Free-machine Embroidery Workshops in Sheffield S11

"A lovely way to spend a Sunday. Set in a beautiful, inspiring well equipped studio. Lots of clear instructions and help given along the way. The atmosphere was relaxed but everyone was absorbed in their creations I had given a voucher to my sister for her birthday, it was something she had always wanted a go at, but I have to say, I think I enjoyed it as much as she did."

Dawn Ireland Textile Artist responded:

" Hi Janet, thanks for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed the day. It was great to have both you and your sister there. "
