Tiwi Design Aboriginal Corporation

Tiwi Design, located on Bathurst Island, started from a small Catholic Presbytery in 1969.

Two young men, Bede Tungatalum and Giovanni Tipungwuti, worked with the art teacher, Madeline Clear, to produce woodblock prints. The artists soon began to transfer their designs onto silk screens and printing textiles quickly became a major activity.

Today, Tiwi Design artists provide diverse works across many mediums, including fine art sculptures and paintings. The ceramic studio produces sculptural pieces that combine traditional and contemporary elements that never fail to surprise.

Tiwi Design is a member of the Tiwi Art Network and can be visited via their Tiwi Island Art Tour.
