Toni Buckby

I work with traditional textiles, experimental digital technologies and acts of collective making to question ideas of skilled practice, the value of labour, the visibility of authorship, and the production and accessibility of knowledge.

Specialising in fine hand embroidery, my practice also involves drawing, weaving, diy electronics, digital prototyping and interactive computer works created with code.

I regularly run workshops and projects working with volunteers and members of the public.

I am currently working on a PhD with Sheffield Hallam University and the Victoria & Albert Museum looking at how fine art practice and digital technologies can be used to reconstruct, interpret and present fragile and inaccessible Elizabethan embroideries.
