Tjanpi Desert Weavers

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council created to enable women in the remote Central and Western desert regions to earn their own income from 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 kilometres across the tri-state (WA, SA, NT) border region of Central Australia. Tjanpi field officers regularly travel to these communities to purchase artworks from artists, supply art materials, hold skills development workshops and facilitate grass collecting trips. These trips also allow a number of other cultural maintenance activities to take place.

Tjanpi also has a public gallery in Alice Springs, regularly exhibits work in national galleries, facilitates commissions for public institutions, and holds public weaving workshops.
