Class #5

Hooks: Forging a Decorative Basic

Jeremiah Backhaus

June 27 & 28 | 9 - 5


This two-day class will focus purely on the hook. This basic forged form is still used today from “S” to “J” and coat hooks. We will be spending time looking at what makes a pleasing hook, various ways of terminating the end of the stock, and different ways we can spruce up this form of functional ironwork beyond just a basic hook.

Jeremiah Backhaus is a Blacksmith who became infatuated with metal at the age of 11, when he built his first forge and began a lifelong pursuit. Years later, the metal still holds sway over him. Jeremiah has had the opportunity to work with some of the best smiths in the country and proved he has learned by recently becoming a champion on the History Channel’s competitive show, Forged in Fire.
