Bamboo Bicycle Workshop

June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020

Mason Cooley

During this workshop students will build a custom bamboo bicycle frame that they can equip to ride once all the components are built. The frame is built in class. Students will need to complete the wheels, etc. at home. You will learn the basics of frame geometry, frame size, proper placement of bamboo poles on the jig, and techniques for constructing the frame and final finish. The class includes hands-on examples of components needed to complete building the bicycle. Open to all skill levels.


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.
