Tjanpi is the word for grass in the Pitjantjatjara language. The Tjanpi Desert Weavers collective represent over 400 female artists from 26 remote communities spread across the vast NPY lands.
Tjanpi artists use native grasses to make spectacular contemporary fibre art, weaving beautiful baskets and sculptures and displaying endless creativity and inventiveness.
Originally developed from the traditional practice of making manguri rings, working with fibre in this way has become a fundamental part of Central and Western desert culture. The Tjanpi Desert Weavers celebrate life, creativity, and Country.
