Mason Cooley designs custom furniture and smaller home goods with his partner, Summer. He also makes bamboo-frame bicycles. However, he has never made a bicycle frame for others – he prefers to teach them how to craft their own. He offers “BAMBOO BICYCLE WORKSHOP” at Arrowmont this fall, October 24-29, 2021. https://www.arrowmont.org/workshops/bamboo-bicycle-workshop-mason-cooley/
The bamboo bike blog has the process of making the bamboo frames. I don’t sell or make those custom for people. It has been my mission to teach people how to make their own. http://bamboo-bike-build.blogspot.com/
Mason Cooley operates a woodworking studio in Western North Carolina where he designs and builds custom furniture. He received his BFA and MFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Aside from his professional career, he is an avid cyclist who also explores philosophy, science, and design. Cooley’s interdisciplinary curiosities piqued his interest in building bamboo bicycle frames.
