Welcome to the Website of the Northern Rockies Blacksmiths Association

The NRBA is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the preservation of the craft of blacksmithing and to educational endeavors related to the craft.  We draw members primarily from Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakotas as well as several from Washington, Oregon and western Canada.

The NRBA supports and encourages the continued professional development of working smiths, the budding skills of those new to the pursuit and the interest and education of the general public in this ancient and fascinating craft. We invite you to join us as a member and to support the preservation of blacksmithing into the 21st century.

The NRBA is an affiliate of the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America (ABANA)

Our Next Conference is scheduled for September 20 through 22 in Livingston, Montana.
