The Lost Art

Reviving the art of leather has led a group of Blackall Locals to set-up The Lost Art workshop. The Lost Art now strives towards creating and developing a local and tourism market for their art, while promoting traditions and unique skills developed in western Queensland.

Visit the workshop to see how to hand plait kangaroo leather gifts such as key rings, fly swatters, belts, bags, and whips. 

The Lost Art program aims to preserve these skills, pass them on to the younger generations and create an opportunity for the expression of creativity. Purchase a hand crafted leather item of your own as a unique outback souvenir.

The Lost Art is open from Monday to Thursday , 7.00 am – 12.00 pm.

Location: Blackall
