Expressions of Interest are now invited from those who may wish to demonstrate their trade/skill at the upcoming third annual Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail.
“The Trail” is a Bathurst Regional Council initiative supported by a number of community heritage and history groups including Bathurst District Historical Society, Bathurst Heritage Network, The National Trust, Bathurst Bead & Wire Craft Guild, Bathurst Embroidery Guild and the Bathurst Family History Group.
It will next take place during Bathurst Heritage Week, May 18-19, 2018, and will feature heritage trades in a number of heritage buildings and precincts around Bathurst.
It is aimed at increasing public awareness of heritage for locals and visitors. It is a not for profit community activity, and venues will be managed and manned by volunteers.
The concept is that each exhibitor will showcase their skill by working on an example so people can gain an understanding of the trade or craft. Hands-on activities and workshops are encouraged.
