Conservation workshop on Wooden objects and Structures

This October, V for Wood spent 10 days in Ranibagh and Nainital studying techniques of conservation of wood and wooden structures. This is a first in this country thanks to the efforts of HIMSHACO and Tata Trust. The group of young conservators spent 6 days at the HQ of HIMSHACO in Ranibagh studying conservation techniques and materials and 4 days in Nainital at Mistri Labs which is housed in Vimal Kunj, studying the basics of carpentry. What follows is a short account of the course in its entirety.

Viren is absolutely fun and he will rub his woodworking obsession on you. I have transformed from a hesitant and irregular hobbyist to a beginner level experimental carpenter/carver. Attend any of his classes and one is sure to make a new friend and guide for life. You can turn to him for suggestions anytime. His tips and tricks have not only helped me better my skill but has motivated me to practise more and become a patient person.

I spent four days learning about wood, Learning about myself, and learning about what it is to be a good teacher. Viren has this capacity that only the people who love what they do can transmit. He's passionate, and during 4 days I have been passionate by wood and I didn't want it to stop. I came to the workshop because I was curious, I left wanting more ! I hope we will be able to collaborate to create the same for the kids together. Thank you Viren, and thank you to all the wonderful people which whom I shared this moments ( please apologise for the English-french mistakes in this text)

Viren’s class is always pulsating with pure exhilaration and energy, never a dull moment. He encourages you and even applauds you when you make a mistake and that’s when I learnt, the hard way, never to take his adulation seriously :). And it’s because of these mistakes that I will never mistake reading the grains of wood and a lot many more concepts that couldn’t have possibly been taught better.

I intend to take up woodworking as a permanent weekend activity and I look forward to annoying Viren further more! Couldn’t have found a better teacher to introduce me to woodworking than him !
