Australian Centre for Rare Arts & Forgotten Trades

We are built from a love of heritage and a desire to create things that last, and our ambition is to connect people to lifelong learning.

We believe in human capability and the mastery of practice and are passionate about preserving the knowledge and ability of those that have come before us.

Informed by our past, we imagine a world where contemporary practice and future innovation is supported by our dedication to expertise and skill sharing.

We think value and worth is defined by more than just price, and that working with expert tradespeople, everyone has the potential to create and contribute to the enduring legacy of human skill.
