Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council, working with women in the remote Central and Western desert regions who earn an income from contemporary fibre art. Tjanpi (meaning grass in Pitjantjatjara language) represents over 400 Anangu/Yarnangu women artists from 26 remote communities on the NPY lands.
Katherine Coulthard is an artist who started making for Tjanpi about 6 months ago. Katherine grew up learning and watching Nelly Patterson, Mintatjarra Wilson and other elders from Mutitjulu. Her sister Justine Anderson taught her to weave with coloured raffia. Katherine loves to make baskets, bowls and dream catchers. She also paints Honey Ant Dreaming, Seven sisters and women’s Dreaming/Ceremonies.
