Calling Skilled Artisans

The Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail is the foremost heritage event in the Bathurst region calendar, a celebration of traditional craftsmanship and rare trades. The 2023 event attracted a record attendance of over 3,000 and the 2024 event is anticipated to be even bigger in scale.

Do you practice an artisan trade or craft? The event organising committee is now seeking expressions of interest from potential new exhibitors for the next even to be held 16-17 March 2024. Be a part of something extraordinary and join over 100 other artisans keeping alive these important rare trades and passing on the knowledge to new generations.

We are particularly interested (though not exclusively) in the skills of:

Knife making, wagon building, taxidermy, analogue photography, bookbinding, paper making, marionette making, cobbling, wheelwrights, candle making, organ grinding, tanning, pottery, rope making, decopage, milliner, tin-smithing and tinkering.
