Maruku Arts Tours & Workshops
The Anangu-owned non-profit art collective offers daily dot painting sessions and guided Uluru cave art tours.
Not-for-profit art and craft organisation Maruku has been operating for 30 years in the heart of the Northern Territory. It's owned and run by the Aṉangu people from the Western and Central Deserts of Australia, with a shop and gallery at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Cultural Centre and a market stall in the town square of Yulara (the township where you'll find most of the accommodation near Uluru).
Visitors can develop a deeper understanding of Aṉangu art and history at the Yulara dot painting workshops, which run twice daily. You'll be led by an Aṉangu artist and interpreter to create a work using traditional techniques and be tutored in the meaning of ancient Indigenous symbols — all while situated outside, surrounded by the stunning landscape.
