The Glengarry Pioneer Museum Smith-In is an opportunity for blacksmiths to develop and share their skills and for other crafts people to share their products with our patrons and visiting smiths. This year,blacksmiths Mike Armstrong & Megan Carter will be conducting a weekend workshop for smiths interested in forging a Lancashire-pattern hacksaw (at this time the workshop is full).  There will again be gun smithing demonstrations in the museum’s blacksmith shop.

The Ontario Artist Blacksmith Association is a group of professional and part time blacksmiths, as well as others who are interested in the field. Some members have a great deal of experience, while others have only a little.

For the public, we seek to promote the work and trade of blacksmithing, both traditional and modern, as a high quality, creative craft and affordable art form which has a growing place in modern society. For an example of some of what we have to offer, please peruse our Gallery. For those looking to hire a blacksmith, please read Hiring a Blacksmith.

For our members, we seek to promote an exchange of creative ideas, provide an opportunity for teaching and learning about specific techniques of blacksmithing. How to Join.
