  • I am in my first year as Ian Taylor’s (of Lakeland Coppice Products) apprentice on the BHMAT coppicing apprenticeship scheme, after attending Woodland Pioneers 2009 and successfully applying for the apprenticeship earlier this year (2010).
  • I work with Ian in the South Lake District area, mainly coppicing oak and hazel woods.
  • I decided to do the apprenticeship after completing a degree at Leeds Metropolitan University in Music Technology, not conventionally classed as a natural progression.
  • My prior experience in working with wood (aside from the woodland pioneers course) has been mainly craft based, knife carvings and musical instrument making (using my own designs). About equal amounts of relishing and cursing the challenge of using salvaged wood and make shift tools!
