The Society of Inclusive Blacksmiths fosters equity and diversity in the field of blacksmithing. We offer educational resources, mentorship opportunities, and special events that empower and support our community while reducing the social and economic barriers to this work.

"I can be a woman, I can be a bit queer, I can be myself, because I can also be a blacksmith."

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.​
