Dionne Swift studied Embroidery at Goldsmiths College, followed by a Masters at the University of Central England.
"I aim to translate my vision of the world into cloth by printing, dying and stitching at my Yorkshire based studio."
Supported by a collection of teaching qualifications, Dionne has lectured at Higher Education level for over 20 years and continues to offer a selection of creative workshops both in the UK, abroad and online
"It is an art to playfully push people forward whilst teaching them, and art that Dionne understands and practises." - Studio Student
"Fantastic experience. I learned so much. Quality and pace were just right. The workshop has really released a myriad of creative ideas and thoughts and equipped me to continue to experiment and develop new ideas for a very long time" - Studio Student
"A well paced, well resourced course. Students have a clear understanding of tasks set and are pushed to explore" – Alison Baxter, Short course coordinator West Dean College.
"Just wonderful. Thank you Dionne. This course is easy to follow, clear, concise and inspirational. I enjoyed working at my own pace and being able to watch the videos a few times to really study the techniques. I have absolutely loved screen printing and thank you for introducing me to this wonderful technique. I will definitely be doing more of your workshops both online and hopefully in your studio. Well done with this fantastic idea." - Online student
"The videos were superb – demonstrations were so clear I didn’t really need the notes although sometimes these had helpful extra suggestions. The content was excellent – the exercises could be done quite simply if necessary but there was lots of room to take them further if inspired. Plus this was the best use of Facebook I’ve seen. It has made me rethink how I use it in future – instead of just closing my account!! The feedback was just right for me – supportive, positive but challenging where appropriate and pushing me forward." - Online student
