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 nurturing the tradition, art and craft of blacksmithing.
