FIMMA Joiner Project innovates by providing workshops

With the motto “innovation and differentiation”, the 14th International Fair of Machines, Raw Materials and Accessories for the Furniture Industry (FIMMA Brasil), from March 26 to 29, in Bento Gonçalves (RS), offers a series of new features to both exhibitors and visitors. This includes the FIMMA Joiner Project, which will have a number of attractions in 2019 for professionals who skillfully transform wood intro furniture with creativity. Hence, the management of the event has planned a dynamic schedule of activities approaching current and relevant issues.

Visitors will be able to take part in lectures and workshops with Youtubers Adilson Pinheiro, of the channel Oficina 44, who will approach two thought-provoking themes: finishes and epoxy resin; Daniel Stopa, of the channel Stopa Lab, who will talk about the characteristics of joiner’s shops in Brazil; Paulo Valença will address MDF for beginners and hobbyists; Waldênia Caracas will talk about how it is possible to make a living from sustainable woodworking, forms of price-setting and dealing with customers; and Will Araújo will elaborate on marketing for joinery.

In 2019, FIMMA Brasil will provide new experiences to the woodworkers through three workshops. Two of them will be run by Fabrique Maker, where the manufacture of handcrafted lightings will be taught and during a traditional woodworking course, they will teach how to make a Japanese Bench. Grupo Marceneiros do Brasil (GMB), founded by Alessandro Ramalho and Eduardo Casa Grande, will be in charge of the third workshop, which will address the theme "Developing creativity to manufacture small joinery pieces".

Real-time factory
For the third time, the FIMMA Joiner Project, supported by FIMMA Brasil 2019 exhibiting companies, including INMES and the Instituto SENAI de Tecnologia em Madeira e Mobiliário, will show visitors a real-time factory layout, featuring equipment used in a joiner’s shop. In this area, some pieces of tailor-made furniture will be produced to furnish three spaces of the Bento Gonçalves Municipal Shelter.
