The ring of the anvil and the tradition of the artist blacksmith lives on at Weatherbury Farm.

Blacksmith 33 year-old Nigel Tudor began his career at age 13 at  nearby historical Meadowcroft Village and has studied with some of the most renowned blacksmiths in the country.

Because of insurance restrictions, Nigel's shop is no longer open to the public; however, guests may see a blacksmith at work at nearby Meadowcroft Museum.

 In 2001, Nigel was  selected by ABANA (the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America) to study ornamental ironwork in Germany at the atelier of Timm Bredohl and Andreas Gueldenberg.

Nigel was a demonstrator at the 2004 biannual ABANA national conference.

Coming full course, he has taught weeklong and weekend blacksmithing courses since 2004 at Touchstone Center for Crafts (where he has taken classes himself since he was 16).

Nigel is currently focusing on architectural ironwork commissions. He is also very involved in farm operations, including field work, organic grains, planning, keeping organic records, breakfast preparation and gardens.  He was the impetus behind Weatherbury Farm adding certified organic grains which in turn has led to flour milling and pasta making.

Nigel has used his metal working skills to repair the farm's machinery and design & build a compost turner and a spelt dehuller for Weatherbury's grain operation.
