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.
Demo will be SOFA members demonstrating Christmas gift ideas.
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.
