A short film about wood carving, produced in collaboration with DICRC (Design Innovation and Craft Resource Centre), Ahmedabad. Traditional wood carving, like many other crafts is slowly disappearing. DICRC are working on documenting, preserving and promoting many such rich traditions of space-making crafts.
The film is narrated by Mohanbhai Suthar, a passionate and experienced carver, who talks about the philosophy behind his craft, the spiritual belief of the carpenter community and the future of this tradition. A longer version of this film including further artist philosophy, issues faced by this craft in today's context and comprehensive documentation of tools and techniques of wood carving is in production and will be released shortly.
