The printing is a hand process that traditional handicraft workers can adopt, already having a similar skills set. Handicrafts in general are struggling to survive, pushed aside by industrial mass production. People are being displaced from their home villages due to lack of income. Screen printing is both productive and a clean industry that can be practised on a small scale. We use water based inks. The designs belong to Aboriginal artists, who receive generous royalties on every purchase made.
About the Design
Jeannie’s story is about the seven sisters who created land forms during the dreamtime. They camped in many paces all over Australia, running away from a man called wati (initiated man) Nyiru. Nyiru was in love with the eldest sister and kept chasing the sisters. Nyiru and the sisters created landforms and sacred sights across Australia. Each language group has different chapters of the same story, and different sights and landmarks made by Nyiru and the sisters. Eventually the sisters fled to the milky way where they can still be seen. The sisters are now the Pleiades and Nyiru is Orion, he is never going to catch them now.
