Bob Patrick is a master Blacksmith. He graduated from the Midwest Ferrier School, was Head Blacksmith at Hale Farm and Village, opened Big Anvil Forge, and established Big Anvil Forge School of Blacksmithing. He was three times selected Master Blacksmith for the State of Missouri and is a founding member of the Blacksmith Association of Missouri (BAM). He presented demonstrations at the Frontier Folklife Festivals, 3 ABANA conferences, CanIron, and he taught at John C. Campbell and Ozark School of Blacksmithing. Bob Patrick lives and works in the beautiful rural area of Everton, AR. The nearest motels and food are 15-25 miles away. So he offers the rare chance to not only work in his personal studio, but to stay in his home. Bob’s wife, Mary, is also an artist and her mosaics cover the exterior walls of their house, creating a magical environment.
