Women's work

Categories: Job Seekers, Pirlangimpi

Fiona Puruntatameri is an accomplished artist who draws from her Tiwi art and culture to produce magnificent screen printed fabric and garments. She also works at the Pirlangimpi Women’s Centre where she teaches the ladies how to do lino cuts and printing.

The Women’s Centre is a busy, happy place where the ladies do their sewing, basket weaving and tie-dying. Together they also go out hunting for bush tucker and art supplies.

The ladies take orders from local residents, tourists and small businesses, and work towards the biggest event of the year, the Darwin Art Fair. Fiona says that income from the Art Fair is re-invested in the Women’s Centre “so we can keep growing for our young ones.”
