LOST or the Leichhardt Open Studio Trail is an event held in conjunction with Art Month and Spectrum Now Festival each year in March.
Weekend of the 12 + 13 March, 10- 4pm.
During this time artists studios throughout the local area open their doors to the public. This is a rare opportunity to enter the personal creative realms of participating artists and take an exciting peek into many creative spaces.
LOST 2016 will be our fifth run of the popular studio trail, which is growing in strength, and numbers each year. LOST 2016 will see 58 spaces open their doors on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March, 2016 (10-4pm each day).
Each year we find new artists willing to open their doors into normally private worlds, joining forces on the trail to showcase the strength and diversity of the arts community in our local area. LOST offers opportunities to join guided bicycle tours, attend free workshops, participate in hands on activities, and much more.
LOST invites the wider public to see a wide range of creative ventures, and with such a wide array of genres, styles and materials in use, everyone will be able to find a number of artworks that speak to them personally in the way only art can. Visitors to LOST 2016 will have the opportunity to view street art, video, painting, sculpture, mixed media, stencil art, illustration, printmaking, mosaics, glass art, ceramics, flute making, furniture making, millenery, photography, jewellery, drawing and textile art.

joining us. The Sydney Bus Museum
is now located in Leichhardt and will be Opening Soon.
Pictured right is"Ludwig Leichhardt" enjoying a visit to the museum. Ludwig is the LOSTTrails spiritual father as he was a man who really knew how to explore. In fact he went missing in 1848 during one of his explorations, never to be seen again.
