Childers Festival Glass workshops with Judith Bohm-Parr

AN INTRODUCTION TO ART AT STUDIO 8 GLASS

Take a few hours out of your busy schedule of events and nourish your creative side. Attend a glass workshop during the festival and reconnect with your inner self whilst creating a beautiful piece of art in glass.

Studio 8 Glass is just 5 kms south of Childers on a landscaped property called Xanadu. The glass studio is housed in a rustic iron & timber structure reminiscent of the days of old. Judith Bohm-Parr, the artist behind Studio 8, has recently relocated from the Cairns area after 22 years in the tropics. She brings with her over 30 years of experience of creating all forms of kiln-fired glass and national & international tutoring. She has been presented with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in glass from Australian National University and a Master Of Creative Arts from James Cook University

Her extensive studio is set up with 4 kilns and can cater to workshops, corporate work and commissions. The largest kiln, “Molly” (all kilns have a name!) is 2mts long, so can fuse architectural panels, windows and interior features. The beautiful gardens & waterlily filled lagoon surrounding her studio have inspired her to create a range of water features & garden sculptures that will be launched in the near future.

So come to Studio 8 glass and spend a few hours nourishing your creative side. Join other like-minded people, and make some beautiful glass. You may come to studio 8 Glass & Xanadu as a visitor, but you will leave as a friend. More workshops catering for beginners to advanced, will be offered throughout the year.

Cheers,
Jude
