Artistic Blacksmiths Association of North Carolina
Artistic Blacksmiths Association of North Carolina


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.

The First Quarter meeting scheduled for March 21st has been postponed until further notice. Lyle Wheeler, President, NCABANA 15thMAR2020

Unfortunate events have led to the current cancellation of the 1st Quarter meeting at Oak Hill Iron. Hopefully, once things clear up and settle down, we will be able to reschedule at this location. As of right now, the following meetings are still being held. 

2nd Quarter will be hosted by Shop Space, located in Raleigh. They are a relatively new organization and we are working together to spread the word of blacksmithing. They have a very nice shop, and the event should be really fun.  

3rd Quarter will be back in the world of the Triad, as they host the state once again at the Dixie Fairgrounds forge. 

4th Quarter will be gratiously hosted once again by Roger Barbour out in Clayton. This is always a good time folks. 

Additional meetings are also in discussion, and any changes will be posted.
