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.
The write up is about my week long stay in this beautful Devrai Art Village,near Panchgani.
The experience one would feel here cannot be penned down, however below is my best effort to capture the same.
