Australian Blacksmiths Association (Victoria) Incorporated.
The Australian Blacksmiths Association (Victoria) Inc is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preserving and promoting the ancient and honourable craft of the blacksmith. If that is also your outlook then please do not hesitate in becoming a member. You will find enough equipment and assistance to get you going but, we are definitely not a teaching instutuion. You will learn by doing and from your mistakes but you will also learn by just being involved. The more you you do so the more things will become clearer.
In return for such facilities and assistance we ask only that you endeavour to become an active and contributing member of the Group.
This site will give you a quick overview of who we are and what we do, however blacksmithing is not a passive art for reading about, rather something to do. So have a quick look around, then come and join us
We publish a quarterly newsletter The Drift which usually contains stuff you'd expect to find in a newsletter. If you have news, perhaps an interesting photo or two or something else you'd like to share, send it to the Editor.
WORK DAYS AT THE BARN
Our regular work days are every second Sunday. (click here to view the upcoming workdays at The Barn). We will open The Barn on request at other mutually convenient times, especially for country members.
After five years of work the Tree is in the ground. The Tree is at the Peter Avola Pavilion, 160 Chadds Creek Road Strathewen. You are very welcome to visit. We're landscaping at the moment, so it's a bit of a construction site.
