We are happy here in the community of Warakurna doing our paintings and tjanpi (woven fibre sculptures). When people see them they feel happy. Children, women and men come to this art centre to paint and make things. Children of the younger generation are growing up painting alongside grandfathers and grandmothers. When they get older they will continue doing painting, artefacts and tjanpi when our generation has passed on.
