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.

What's New?

You are looking at it!

This is our new website and there are some cool new features to check out. You can come here to check out what's going on with all the local groups. This is a central place for all the local group leaders to come and set the schedules for their meetings and keep you up-to-date. There is a repository of articles, past copies of the "Hot Iron Sparkle", and galleries of photos from around the state.

For now, only the group leaders can log on, but shortly we will be reaching out to all the members to help them set up their online accounts. Lastly, it won;t be long before you can pay your dues and track your membership status.

So bookmark this page and check back regularly, because there is a lot going on in the forges of North Carolina!
