Cooper is a maker. After studying ceramics at Humboldt State University, where he has a degree in studio art, Cooper went on to complete an apprenticeship at Earth Sky Time Community Farm and Bakery in rural Vermont. There, his interest in woodworking grew; as he built tiny-houses during the day and baked sourdough bread into the night.
Cooper is very excited to be part of the community of The Krenov School. He is thrilled to be able to focus his time and energy to study the use of hand tools and joinery in woodworking. He looks forward to creating furniture that will be used in an home context; bringing handbuilt touches into the daily experience.
