About the Speaker

Professor Justin Marshall is an experienced digital craftsperson, maker and researcher. For over fifteen years his research has been investigating the integration of digital design and production technologies into art and craft practices. As such he is interested in the role and significance of digital tools within craft practice, both in terms of new aesthetic opportunities, and how the creative use of this toolset challenges the concept of the ‘handmade’. He has exhibited digital craftwork both nationally and internationally.

 

He is also interested in how access to digital manufacturing tools can empower individuals and communities to 'make', especially in relation to Makerspaces and Maker communities, both within the UK and beyond.

 

More broadly, he is interested in how craft, as a materially sensitive and human centred practice can have value in multidisciplinary research projects and has been involved in numerous collaborative projects that bring together diverse teams to investigate areas beyond the normal scope of craft practitioners.

 

He was a member of the AHRC peer Review College from 2012 to 2018, including sitting on the ‘Follow on Funding’ award panel. He is a Fellow of the RSA. He has been an external examiner for range of courses over the last decade, including BA(Hons)/MDes 3D Design and Craft Course at the University of Brighton, MSc Product Design at the University of Dundee and BA(hons) 3D Design at Robert Gordon University.
