Tim has, for many years, been involved with the teaching of applied ecology, ceramics and sculpture both at University and workshops in the UK and abroad.

Tim studied ceramics as an undergraduate with a particular interest in experimental archaeology.
After completing a Masters’s Degree in sculpture, Tim spent several years researching the relationship between ecological systems and historical construction techniques for which he was awarded a Doctorate. He is well known for his development and teaching of Adapting-in-Action: a sequential approach to construction, based on a historical study of natural materials and their associated construction techniques.

Dr Tim has established his own practice in the North Norfolk countryside, where he manages twelve acres of mixed woodland. This provides him with a perfect working environment with plenty of natural materials for open-firings and construction.

Tim teaches sculpture in Norwich and is a visiting university lecturer. He is an active researcher in experimental archaeology and Adapting-in-Action. Tim also works for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, leading regular environmental workshops.
