We are an organization of blacksmiths who want to strengthen our community through education, hands on experience, and promote public understanding of the trade through demonstration.

Members enjoy access to scholarships, information about meetings all around the state, a subscription to our quarterly publication (digital or in print) as well as a wealth of online archives.

What's New?

Our next statewide meeting is set for September 7th at the forge at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds, hosted by the Triad Area Blacksmiths.  This will be our 3rd quarter meeting and nominations and elections for Vice President and Secretary will be held during the business portion.
