Arthur Stansfield Dixon (26 August 1856 – 8 January 1929) was an English metal worker and architect.
Born in Edgbaston, Birmingham, he was the eldest son of education reformer and MP George Dixon. He founded the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft and designed their headquarters in Great Charles Street. The building is still extant, but converted to offices.
He also designed the Romanesque style, brick-built Church of St John & St Basil (1910–1911) in Heath Mill lane in the city's Digbeth district ( It was described by ).Nicholas Pevsner as "the finest example of his Arts and Crafts primitivism". A further church design was St Andrew’s Church, Barnt Green, Worcestershire ().
Pevsner described Dixon as "an Anglo-Catholic Socialist who associated Gothic with establishment conservatism and dreary Anglican piety".
