Pennsylvania Artist-Blacksmiths' Association
PABA has a meeting at different locations around Pennsylvania every other month. The group meets together at a members shop for a demonstration by the host member or a guest blacksmith.
The meetings typically start around 9AM (free coffee & donuts) with a demonstration. After lunch we have a group business meeting to keep the members up to date, followed by more demonstrations. *NEW* PABA now offers "Technique Time" after the lunch break to cover basic Blacksmithing skills.
Throughout the day, everyone is free to check out the Iron in the Hat items. The IITH is donated items from members... almost anything. Also each meeting there is an Iron Mater of the Day contest. Participants bring a predetermined item and the members vote on what person produced the best piece. Anyone is welcome, come chat with our members and enjoy!
