“ Being effective and resourceful at works requires creativity. What’s more our colleagues and customers respond well to creative people. It follows that the more creative we are at work the more effective we are. Tim’s work of reconnecting our creative brains cells with our careers not only works, it is profound and great fun!”

“ For a couple of years now, Forum for the Future has run a week-long course (under the title of “Reconnections”) for business people in its partner companies. Tim has made an important contribution to that process, particularly through an “outdoor sculpture” element that both inspired delegates in its own right, and helped them to think more deeply about their own personal relationship with the natural world.”

"Unfailingly encouraging, supportive and inspirational, Tim has introduced me to the beauty of bronze and ably guided me through the mysteries of the bronze casting process. This has been a life changing experience for me which I hope to explore further as I gain in confidence and technique".
It was with some trepidation that I enrolled on a bronze casting course with Tim, mainly due to my concerns on handling extremely hot materials and my lack of manual dexterity. I need not have worried as Tim was mindful of the individuals within the small student group and their varying needs. I was able to ask for assistance at any stage in the process. I found Tim a most enthusiastic and patient tutor. I am now the proud owner of two bronze sculptures that I treasure.
I came to the bronze casting course that you ran at Newport House and although I was looking forward to it I also approached it with some trepidation. I am a complete beginner when it comes to art but have been surrounded all my life with art as my mother was very talented and loved dabbling with all sorts of mediums, but subject matter was always mainly figurative. To be given the opportunity to play with wax and finally let ideas start to evolve was releasing and the help and encouragement from Tim and the welcoming attitude of other people on the course was a delight. To actually end up with a bronze piece that I had seen go through all its processes, mine and not a shadow of something Mum would have done has been almost cathartic. Thank you Tim.
