The Artist Blacksmith Association of North America is a national association with over 4000 members from around the world. The group was formed in the late 1960's, and currently leads the revival of the art and crafts of blacksmithing -- which had mostly died out in the United States. Today, American blacksmiths have created a major art movement inspiring folks from around the world. Much of this work will be exhibited in Salt Lake City during the Conference July 13-16, 2016. Those wishing to attend the conference may register at abana.org/Conferences/2016/contents/en-us/d5_Register.html. You are also welcome to attend the free portion of the conference on the evenings of July 15-16.
