The BGOP is organized exclusively for educational and training purposes, including the following: to encourage and facilitate the establishment of training programs for aspiring smiths; to disseminate information about sources of material and equipment; to expose the art of blacksmithing to the public; to serve as a center of information about blacksmithing for interested groups and the general public.

Tucked away in a Nature Preserve you will find a 1700's Blacksmith shop, built to assist in the teaching process of a trade from long-ago. Experienced and Novice Blacksmiths may be found, honing their skills at the Guild Forge. Classes are available through the Blacksmiths' Guild of the Potomac and the Guild Hotline may be reached by calling 703-527-0409 for the latest information regarding Guild activities and programs.
