Welcome, skip to the content.

Find inspiration, skill, rare and forgotten trades, lost arts and traditions at the Lost Trades Fair. Over 1000 combined years of experience - all in one place.

Meet the makers - see over 90 bespoke makers practising their crafts and trades; chairmakers, coopers, silversmiths, tinsmiths fletchers, gunsmiths, makers of tools, rocking horses, penny farthings, musical instruments, wickerware, decorative painting, pinstriping and stonemasonry.

The trades and the incredible artisans, workers and makers who continue to pursue these trades as a career will showcase their skills, craftsmanship and share their knowledge.

The Lost Trades Fair 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 inspire them to have the confidence to design and create something real and beautifully crafted and to show and teach them about what people can do with practice, passion and knowledge.
