About Tjanpi Desert Weavers:
The Tjanpi Desert Weavers are from Irrunytju, Western Australia. They are a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council, working with women in the remote Central and Western deserts who earn an income from contemporary fibre art.
Tjanpi represents more than 400 Aboriginal women artists from 26 remote communities on the NPY lands. The NPY lands cover approximately 350,000 square kms across the tri-state border region (WA, SA, NT) of Central Australia. Tjanpi field officers regularly travel to these communities and purchase artworks from the artists, supply art materials, hold skills development workshops, and facilitate grass collecting trips.
Tjanpi also runs public weaving workshops, has a public gallery in Alice Springs, and regularly exhibits work in national galleries and commissions for public institutions and collectors.
