Lost Trades Fair - Toowoomba 2017

Saturday 7 October & Sunday 8 October 2017

10am to 4pm


Master artisans and traditional tradesmen and women with hundreds of combined years of training will demonstrate and share their skills and talent for heritage trades at first Lost Trades Fair to be held in Queensland.


Come and see trades being practised, just as they always have been, but usually behind closed workshop doors.


Find inspiration, find skill, find craftsmanship, find passion… find incredible stories and people.


Lost Trades aims to inspire, to educate and to open the eyes and 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, something crafted by their own hands - and to show them what people can do with practice, passion and knowledge.


Adults: $15 

Juniors: $5 (5 - 15 years) Under 5’s are free

Pensioners: $10

Family: $35 (2 adults and up to 4 kids 5 - 15 years) 



This is a ticketed event and entry to the Lost Trades Fair requires the purchase of a ticket - there is no free entry.
