NID to conduct textiles & craft workshops in Bhutan

The National Institute of Design (NID), India, is collaborating with the Royal Textile Academy (RTA) of Bhutan to initiate various textiles and crafts related courses in the latter’s newly constructed museum.
 
In an interview with Fibre2fashion, Ms. Shimul Mehta Vyas, the Senior Designer and Activity Chairperson, Outreach Programme at NID, said, “The construction process of the structure for the museum is already on the verge of completion.” 
 
According to Ms. Vyas, the museum, being set up in Bhutan’s capital Thimphu, would come up in three phases and the first phase would be ready for inauguration in a span of 6 to 8 months. “It is going to be a state-of-the-art kind of a museum,” she avers.
 
When quizzed about NID’s collaboration with the RTA, she explains, “We are collaborating with them in some of their initiatives. It is going to be a dynamic museum, so we will be conducting lots of training and workshops there.”
 
“The intention is to help the academy to train their weavers in the areas of natural dyeing and other techniques. With the help of these innovative techniques they will be able to make better products and can sell them out of the museum,” she adds.
 
Further, giving inputs on NID’s Outreach Programme, she says, “The Outreach Programme at NID actively aims at taking India and NID’s experience of having worked in the crafts sector for the last 50 years to the neighbouring regions for their benefit.” 
 
“NID and India are both immensely looked up to by the countries of African continent, as well as the neighbouring SAARC regions like Nepal and Bhutan. And we feel this is the right time to design and help these nations to add value to their activities at several levels,” quips Ms. Vyas.
