+ ANCIENT CRAFTS, RARE TRADES EXPO *

The Rotary Club of Gympie hosted it’s inaugural Ancient Crafts, Rare Trades Expo in November 2018, in conjunction with it’s biennial Quilt & Craft Spectacular. What a weekend we had!

With over 35 exhibitors of ancient crafts and heritage trades, with inspiring demonstrations all weekend by skilled artisans and tradespeople, and with markets and lots of old-fashioned camaraderie, the event was deemed a roaring success.

And this year’s “Ancient Crafts, Rare Trades” Expo is shaping up to be even bigger, with even more meet-the-maker demonstrations, exhibits and bushcraft shows in the stadium in Gympie Showgrounds, alongside the Quilt & Craft Spectacular, October 30 – 31, 2021. www.ancientcrafts.org
