"The Lost Trades Fair promises to deliver an event experience that is authentic, real and retains the integrity on which it was founded. The Lost Trades Fair exists because of these artisans and will continue to celebrate their extraordinary talents, passion, and excellence in craftsmanship.
The ethos behind the Lost Trades Fair is one of discovery; finding what was lost and introducing you to the talented makers in this country that are pursuing careers in lost arts, rare trades, and forgotten crafts. Keeping these skills alive is what the fair is all about - so that they are not lost to history." (Lost Trades website)
