About us

ABICA is a non-profit organisation established in order to support and encourage artists making cast iron sculpture. As a Members Association it is inclusive of all developments in the field of iron casting within the arts, and has been created so that resources and specialist knowledge can be shared.

ABICA provides a way of gaining access to information, experiences, advice and opportunities. It gives artists across Britain who use cast iron in their practice a way of connecting with one another via a formal network, enabling a forum for dialogue in our widely dispersed community.

Anyone can have access to the public area of the website, and we hope this will interest partner organisations who share the values of the group, as well as reintroducing artists to craft skills to enable them to make cast iron art. Members can have access to articles and papers on all aspects of iron casting as well as the forum for posting questions, advice and opportunities.
