Basic Blacksmithing Workshop

Central Minnesota Blacksmiths, a relatively new affiliate, completed the second running of Basic Blacksmithing Workshop. CMB's program is borrowed from the Guild Of Metalsmiths' Blacksmiths Study Guide and the Instructors Workshop Guide. The Guild Of Metalsmiths developed these two programs to provide consistent, quality educational opportunities for their members. The documentation for these two programs are available for the asking, and that made it easy for CMB to adopt and setup.

Central Minnesota Blacksmiths gratefully acknowledges the Guild Of Metalsmiths for their support and assistance. This is another success story of ABANA Affiliates networking and working together to educate and promote the craft.
