Toni Hardy is a student at the Leeds College of Art where she is studying printed textiles and surface design. She has an interest in handcraft and traditional technique and in spending time creating pieces that are ‘one of a kind’. This Underwood typewriter is one of a series of her embroidery art inspired by beauty, function and a love of antiques. Other pieces in the series are inspired by pocket watches and cameras. Each piece is hand stitched onto a cotton background in a continuous line style and framed in a wooden embroidery hoop.
