The Florida Artist Blacksmith Association (FABA) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt educational organization dedicated to promoting the art and craft of forging metal.

We are a group of people from across Florida who meet to teach and learn about blacksmithing and related metalworking skills. Formed in 1985, FABA now has meetings in 4 regional areas around the state, as well as an annual conference that brings in demonstrators and teachers from across the continent and around the world!
