Niagara Region Members

     Members of all skill levels are encouraged to come to our meetings as there will be something valuable to learn for all blacksmiths.  Niagara Forge usually meets at 1 Roberts Ave  in Buffalo, NY 14206.  Every member should try to bring a set of tools to participate in the hands on demo, i.e. hammer and tongs.  Bring your favorite tools to allow yourself a full chance to participate in the project.  Each meeting will included a demo, and then a hands on project.

     Newcomers are welcome at our meetings too.  Any interested individuals may visit two regional monthly meetings for free.  If anyone wishes to continue beyond the two initial meetings they must join the NYSDB.  There is membership and fee information available on the Joining Us page or you can download our brochure, [wpfilebase tag=file id=2 tpl=simple]
