The New York State Designer Blacksmiths (NYSDB) are a group of individuals who share a common interest in the art of blacksmithing….

We come together to share this interest and explore the art.  NYSDB is primarily educational and its purposes are:

  • To encourage and facilitate the establishment of training programs for aspiring blacksmiths;
  • To disseminate information about sources of material and equipment;
  • To expose the art of blacksmithing to the public;
  • To serve as a center of information about blacksmiths for architects, interior designers , other interested groups, and the general public.

We currently have five regions around the state that meet monthly to practice, learn new techniques and expand our personal skill levels.

Our organization is run by an Executive Committee and members can access meeting reports here.

Those with interest are always welcome, please check out our current events and look at our regional pages to see which forge is closest to you.  You can make general inquiries below.
