Tjanpi Desert Weavers


256 pages hardcover colour illustrations

Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a dynamic employment enterprise within the Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women's Council. The latter was formed as a response to the land rights struggles of the 1970s when Indigenous women realised they had no voice. Today the organisation delivers health, social and cultural services across 28 desert communities in Northern Australia's Central and Western Desert lands. Tjanpi (meaning grass) began in 1995 as a series of basket-weaving workshops designed to provide meaningful employment. Today more than 350 women across three states are making spectacular contemporary fibre-art sculptures from locally collected grasses.
