I am offering technical courses for potters.

With my technical background, I’ve found that I have a deeper knowledge of many of these topics than most potters, and I can distill the information into a more readily understood course.

At present the courses are given live online, so you get:

  • A series of live illustrated lectures, where you can ask questions and start discussions
  • A dedicated forum for all course attendees
  • Each lecture presentation is made available as a PDF download
  • Recordings of each lecture are also made available
  • You get enhanced, subscriber level access to my Tech website, which has a lot more in depth information on the topics, references for further material and more

Access to the video recordings, forum, and subscriber level on the web site is free for up to 4 week after the end of the course. After that, it is available for just US$3 a month.

I found the course both informative and enjoyable. Tim has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and a natural ability to present a technical subject in a way that makes it accessible to non-specialists. Recommended!
I am happy to recommend Tim's online webinar on Product Safety as a great way to improve the quality of your pots. He covers all the aspects of making from design to clay bodies, glaze materials and firing schedules. Coming from an engineering and design background his approach is quite different to that of the average art college. Whether or not you have a scientific background, testing and experimenting will become a natural part of your designing and making. Ideal for potters producing functional pots ranging from domestic ware to garden pots, who aim to improve their product.
