Whether you're a design lover, art history stan, or interiors buff, this gem of a gallery is a must-visit on any trip to Alice Springs. With a focus on contemporary fibre art using both traditional and modern techniques, the Tjanpi Desert Weavers gallery represents over 400 First Nations artists from 26 remote communities across Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands.

Bright, colourful and full of life, the gallery features spectacular baskets, sculptures and jewellery. Explore the creativity, community and innovation inherent to Central and Western Desert culture, learn how to weave your own basket, or take home something you won't find anywhere else in the world.
