Cambria Iron Conference Registration

September 21, 2024

The Cambria Iron Conference is an event held at Center for Metal Arts in the historic Cambria Iron and Steel Blacksmith shop.

Our mission for this space is to make it available for the greater forging community to use as well as appreciate and this annual conference is our first major effort towards that goal. Lots of care and consideration goes into our demonstrator selection process with focus always on safety professionalism. Secondary to that and at the core of what we are trying to accomplish for that space is to facilitate creative large-scale forging.

We hope you will join us this year to celebrate this shop’s new life and all of the restoration work CMA has embarked on. It’s very exciting to see what all the different sculptors have created in response to the forging possibilities here and the beautiful historically significant environment that is Johnstown, PA. Come join us during our annual gathering to meet and interact with blacksmiths of all walks of life and backgrounds and experience a new artist’s interpretation of “industrial arts” in a true sense of the words.

Center for Metal Arts is offering a student discount for our Cambria Iron Conference. Students must be enrolled in an educational program, examples include high school, college, university, or non-traditional school. You will be required to show your student ID at registration the day of the conference. If you are unable to show a student ID, additional fees will be applied.
