CALIFORNIA BLACKSMITH ASSOCIATION

Welcome to the CBA website

CBA is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to educating smiths and preserving the art and craft of blacksmithing.

Started in 1977, by a group of 17 California blacksmiths, CBA has developed into a thriving group of over 650 blacksmiths and enthusiasts. We are a diverse group of men and women whose common interest is a passion for metal. Our non-profit, volunteer organization is dedicated to keeping the tradition, art and craft of blacksmithing alive.

CBA welcomes anyone interested in blacksmithing, from beginners to professionals.  Be sure to join us so you can enjoy the people, events and resources that make the CBA a valuable organization.
