The Blacksmith Shop

Opened in 1979 by Joe Koches, The Blacksmith Shop offers the finest and largest collection of master blacksmithing and art glass in the United States. While you are visiting the victorian town of Ferndale, look for our shop on main street.
 Master craftsmen have created:
  •     fireplace tools
  •     wine racks
  •     cabinet hardware
  •     cutlery
  •     candle holders
  •     pot racks
  •     gates  

The country's finest glass blowers have created an extensive array of vases, paperweights, and lighting that's truly spectacular. We also carry glass by Fire & Light.
We are a member of the California Blacksmith Association. The California Blacksmith Association is a non-profit organization whose main goal is to increase awareness of an ancient art form that still finds a place on the cutting edge.

Directions: The Victorian Village of Ferndale, on Main Street. Take the Ferndale exit off Hwy 101, cross over Fernbridge and continue into downtown Ferndale.
