Located in Troy, Ohio (just north of Dayton), members and friends meet at the shop the first Saturday (or the second Saturday if the first Saturday falls on, or near, a holiday) of each month for a brief meeting. Following the meeting, a blacksmith comes in to demonstrate a design or technique. Prior to the meeting, and following the demonstration, members are invited to forge in the north end of the building, adjacent to the meeting area .
During the fall, winter, and spring, the shop is also open Wednesday evenings (except holidays), from 6 P.M. to 10 P.M., to any member who wishes to forge.
Until further notice, any person in our facilities for any reason is required to wear a face covering, per state-wide requirement, as well as abide by all social distancing requirements established by state and local jurisdictions.
We are honored to have Lisa Geersten from Firelight Forge and SIU presenting at the November SOFA Meeting on 6 November (demo beginning at 1pm).

Lisa will be discussing and demonstrating: “The importance of Play / What lives inside this bar?”
Lisa will demonstrate examples of what can be created by just having fun and letting your imagination flow!
She will show the beauty and utility that can come from playing at the forge.
