About Us

WHAT ARE WE? — We are an affiliate of the Artist-Blacksmiths Association of North America —  ABANA  has members not only in North America, but throughout the world.

WHAT DO WE DO? — We are exclusively for the education of members and other interested parties in the skills, techniques, and traditions of blacksmithing.   We aspire to expose the art of blacksmithing to the public, to serve as center of information about blacksmithing and its tradition, and to do so in cooperation with and as an affiliate of the Artist-Blacksmiths Association of North America.

WHERE  DO WE MEET? — BOA  was started in the Northern  part of the state a few years ago. Most of the present members reside in that part of the state, and that is where most of the meetings are held. We are interested in establishing other groups throughout the state where there are persons interested in the art of blacksmithing.  We now have chapters in Little Rock and Jonesboro.
