Toni Buckby

Artist and PhD student (Hallam University in partnership with The Victoria & Albert Museum)

Toni Buckby is an artist and PhD student working with textiles and interactive digital media.

Focusing on the intersection between traditional craft techniques, heritage and digital technologies, her work explores the process of making, the mathematics of pattern and the creation of complex structures through simple components.

She specialises in the hand embroidery technique of Blackwork and is currently working on her PhD research at the Victoria & Albert Museum exploring how creative digital practice can preserve, reconstruct and disseminate Blackwork embroidery.

She also works for the Sheffield arts organisation Access Space where she runs workshops on digital fabrication and spends most of her time attempting to get impractical ideas to function.
