Tjanpi Desert Weavers


Tjanpi Desert Weavers is one of the few opportunities for self-initiated income in the central and western desert region, enabling women living in these communities to make an income from fibre art. 

Unfortunately, the costs involved in running the enterprise mean we cannot rely on artwork sales alone but must also depend on other sources of income to keep the boat afloat. We are privileged to receive some government funding but we also rely on donations from the public to keep us going.

So, while purchasing Tjanpi artworks is one way to support the enterprise, you can also help by making a donation:

  • $10 can provide a hank of raffia for an artist.
  • $35 can provide a crowbar to women collecting grass and hunting for bush tucker.
  • $50 can pay a kungka (younger woman) to collect grass for a minyma (senior lady).
  • $100 can provide weaving kits to two artists.
  • $360 can engage six artists in casual employment at Tjanpi Corner for a few hours.
  • $2500 can support a three-day community workshop with 15 artists.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
