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 learn how to hand plait kangaroo leather gifts such as key rings, belts and whips. Make your very own fly swatter!

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. Visitors may also purchase hand crafted leather items.

The Lost Art is open five days, 7.30 am – 12 pm.

Location: Blackall
