News from Arlpwe


Over the last 12 months the Pottery Training Centre has been steadily developing. During this time the Arlpwe Workers have been using their building skills that they have acquired; Roofing; riveting; welding; cementing; fabrication (making brackets for the rafters); pattern making; and also problem solving.



We had organised that Arlpwe Artists Aboriginal Corporation attend the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF), August 12, 13 & 14, 2011. At Arlpwe we are concentrating on and encouraging ‘team work’ here at the Corporation.

We believed that by attending this art fair it would be a positive experience for our workers and benefit our ‘performance improvement program’.


Arlpwe Artists Aboriginal Corporation held its first introduction to ‘welding’ workshop on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th May, 2011. The objective was to give our male employees exposure to the latest welding techniques and oxy-cutting skills.
