Launching Norfolk Island Silk Painting Week with Teena Hughes 2016 — woohoo! Fantastic news! Registrations are now open for anyone who would like to fly from Brisbane to Norfolk Island for a week-long adventure where I teach silk painting over five days!
Here is a small selection of photos in a Photo Gallery video — in some of the photos I am showing people how to paint on silk, in other photos the designs have been created by my gorgeously talented students in one of my How To Paint On Silk Workshops.
Today I answer a question regarding painting on silk, mobility and health issues — our listener suffers fatigue (tiredness), less mobility for holding paintbrushes, and cannot sit or stand for long periods of time. I came up with a suggestion on how best to still be able to do silk painting for short chunks of time. Perhaps this might help you or someone you know.
I surround myself with colour every day, as I’m sure some of you do too — I’d love to ramble about the things which make my heart sing, as I paint on silk and make gorgeous designs.
I’m testing out some more Podcast options and I think I’ve found one I like!
To test it out I’m using a previous Podcast interview with Lynne Taylor, so let me know if you have any feedback — I know Lynne’s audio isn’t very clear, but next I’ll know better how to ask my interviees which software to use. Fingers’ crossed!

Joann wrote to me and wanted to know whether to use paint our gutta / outliner to create black lines in her design.
This will depend on how WIDE the line needs to be; if it’s half an inch or 1.25cm wide, that’s way too much gutta (“gootah”) or outliner to put on the silk, so opt for paint in this case.
Whether to Use Thin and Thick Gutta or Outliner Lines?
