finding what was lost . . .
The Lost Trades Fair was established as an artisan lead event to provide a single platform for career artisans and traditional tradespeople to share their skills.
People are fascinated when true artisans and talented craftspeople openly demonstrate skills and share their knowledge of their trade and craft.
We aim to inspire, to educate and to open the minds of the next generation to demand something made by a real person rather than a machine; to think about sustainability and the longevity of what they buy and use, to excite people to have the confidence to design, make and create something real, crafted by their own hands - and to show them what people can do with practice, passion and knowledge.
The Lost Trades Fair is unique, captivating and possibly one of the most inspiring and authentic shows on earth.
