About the Maker: Eliza Munroe was born in Jameson WA and moved to her husband's community of Blackstone WA where she now resides. She grew up watching her grandmothers Stacia Lewis and Rene Nelson make wonderful Tjanpi baskets and is now a talented young artist in her own right. Eliza recently participated in a three-day workshop in learning to make flat sculptural works and created a wonderful camel.

About the Group: 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.

Tjanpi artists use native grasses to make spectacular contemporary fibre art, weaving beautiful baskets and sculptures and displaying endless creativity and inventiveness. Originally developing 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.
