Tjanpi Desert Weavers Book (softcover)


Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of NPY Women’s Council that works with the women of the NPY region who make contemporary fibre art. Tjanpi began in 1995 as a series of basket-weaving workshops designed to provide meaningful employment. Today there are 400 women across the region who make spectacular baskets and sculptures from locally collected grasses. While out collecting grasses, the women take time to hunt, gather food, visit sacred sites, and teach their children about Country. This book presents a huge breadth of information and images about the history of Tjanpi with stories from many individuals within it.
