The Society of Inclusive Blacksmiths is committed to building equity and diversity in the field of blacksmithing. We offer mentorship, scholarships, grants, and connections to educational and other resources. Our goal is to empower and support our community while reducing the social and economic barriers to participation in this field.

There is no membership to the society and no fees to join. Anyone who signs the SIBs Code of Conduct is a "SIBling" and part of the family!

SIBs believes in the power and effectiveness of stories. When we hear someone’s direct experience we can empathise with them, and learn how to be better friends and SIBlings.​

Everyone has something to offer, everyone has something to learn.

Welcome to the Society!
