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.
