INJALUK Arts & crafts
In 1992, whilst travelling around Australia, on a professional development for artists grant, White was invited to run her first screen-printing workshop at Injalak Arts & Crafts, in Gunbalanya in Arnhem Land.
During this workshop White supported local women to create their first fabric design print - 'Manma' (bush foods). White returned to Injalak in 2014 and ran a series of workshops, that enabled the creation of 22 more women's textile designs. These designs continue to be best sellers in the art centre, today.
White has continued a deep personal and professional relationship with the Kunwinjku women artists. She also co-managed a cross cultural project at her home with Bundjalung artists. It has been White's privelage to teach and facilitate workshops with these women for the past 30 years.
