Come join us for a fun weekend with renown Blacksmiths from all over showing the art of blacksmithing. Monica Coyne, Dennis Dusek, Jose Gomez, and David Ponsler are the first of many who will be showing off their craftsmanship in metal design.
Florida Artist Blacksmith Association (FABA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to teaching and preserving the art and craft of the blacksmith. First formed in 1984, FABA is an affiliate of the Artist-Blacksmith’s Association of North America (ABANA).
In addition to monthly meetings, FABA also hosts an annual conference in October during which you’ll have the opportunity to watch nationally and internationally renowned blacksmiths demonstrate their specialties, as well as sign up for numerous beginning blacksmithing classes during the 3 day event. You can also purchase a wide variety of hand forged art and tools at the fundraising auction on Saturday night.
