Bam is the Blacksmiths Association of Missouri, a chapter of ABANA, The Artist Blacksmith's Association of North America. It was organized in 1984by Bob Patrick and a small group of people who were interested in learning thisancient craft. Since then the group has grown to nearly 400 members in Missouriand other states.We meet at a member's shop every other month to share ideas and demonstrate new techniques at the forge. One of the highlights at every meeting is the trade item. The host will pick an item - say, kitchen utensils - and everyone makes their own version of the concept. If you make one, you get to take someone else's home.
