Desert Mob Necklaces

Desert Mob pieces by Marlene, Rhonda, Dulcie Raggart and Louise.

A 6 week placement providing Yarrenyty Arltere Artists with creative direction & advice about ways to develop their soft sculptural jewellery at Larapinta Valley Town Camp in Alice Springs.

The artist’s applied their textile techniques (cyanotype, natural dyeing and embroidery) to new works in our time together.
The resulting soft sculptural jewels were well received at Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair and Desert Mob in 2017.

Yarrenyty Arltere will continue to develop their jewellery in tandem with their prints, cushions and soft sculptures.

A great privilege to work in this shimmeringly beautiful country with such gracious and resilient artists.
