Lost Trades Fair (Kyneton) 2018

LOST ARTS ~ RARE TRADES & FORGOTTEN CRAFTS
FINDING WHAT WAS LOST – AND SHARING A PASSION FOR CRAFTSMANSHIP AND HARD WORK
Lost Trades celebrates the art of skilled manual work,ancient crafts and rare trades, the special tools, traditions, languages and secrets that go hand in hand with these trades, passed down through generations. Many crafts and trades have been lost to history; traditional trades and industries that once were the backbone to building our country have fallen from our landscape in the wake of new technology, mass production and an ‘on demand’ culture.
The Lost Trades Fair was established to change this; these trades and the incredible artisans and real makers who continue to pursue these trades as a career deserve a platform to showcase their skills, incredible craftsmanship and share their knowledge. Lost Trades was founded in 2011, we hoped to find as many artisans, makers and traditional tradespeople as we could. The Fair focused on traditional trades and crafts – workshop trades and field crafts, household crafts and decorative arts.
One of the most authentic and inspiring events in the country
