10am-4pm

"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. 

…Blacksmithing, toolmaking, chairmaking, spooncarving; makers of rocking horses, penny farthings, boats, rope and armour join ceramicists, spinners, whip plaiters, weavers, knifemakers, saddlers, leatherworkers and more in this unique event celebrating craftsmanship.”
