Make Your Bamboo Bicycle - Workshop



Bamboo is one of the best natural material to build a bicycle frame. Some species of bamboo are known to perform even better than steel. In short - bamboo is extremely strong, durable, yet lightweight. Thanks to its mechanical properties, bamboo is the best shock absorber among all widespread materials in use for bike frames.


Bamboo is a fast-growing plant, and 100% renewable resource, with some species growing 90 cm per day. Bamboo bicycles also look extraordinarily beautiful and unique - each hand made bike has its own flare! Finally, you will be immersing yourself in crafting techniques, cutting, drilling, sand-dusting, wrapping, building.  Any maker will tell you it’s a special state of mind, as well as strong bond towards that bicycle.




The workshop trainer has personally built over 500 bikes - we can easily call him The Bamboo Bike Master! You will be very hands-on during the workshop and you will do: measuring, marking, drilling, cutting and sanding bamboo poles, waxing, mixing epoxy, wrapping carbon fiber, assembling.





The cost per bike is 5000 CNY including all materials and tools. You get to keep the bike, it’s all yours! Spots are limited to 5. Additional 3-5 spots can be opened for an additional 500 CNY per spot.




The main event facilitator is Shekou International School and execution team of the workshop is team. We provide a variety of innovative training and consultancy in Shenzhen.
