Tim has for many years been involved with the teaching of art both at University and environmental workshops both in the UK and abroad. Tim studied ceramics as an undergraduate followed by a Masters Degree in Sculpture, he then spent several years researching the relationship between ecological systems and sculpture for which he was awarded a Doctorate. He is well known for his development and teaching of Adaptive Construction: an evolutionary approach to working creatively with materials 'at hand'. Recently, Tim has established his own practice in the North Norfolk countryside, where he manages 12 acres of mixed woodland. This provides him with a perfect working environment, which he happily shares with numerous species of birds, mammals and insects (he is a member of the Royal Entomological Society). Tim is now focusing on teaching and sculptural practice in wood, stone, ceramics and mixed media, he also runs creative environmental-workshops where he can share his knowledge and enthusiasm with others.
