Pilbara Palette an inspiration

The rich colours of ancient Karijini provide a stimulating backdrop for a very special artist-led tour.  

The ancient landscape will provide plenty of inspiration for participants on Global Gypsies’ new nine-day Palette of the Pilbara En Plein Air Workshop. The tour runs from August 15 - 23 and will be facilitated by artist Ian de Souza who says the Pilbara is an ideal setting to inspire creativity and to interpret the colour, form and light of the outback through a range of mediums.

Mr de Souza will offer technical guidance and assistance, suggest themes for each day’s activities and lead discussions but participants are welcome to work independently if they prefer. The tour is limited to 12 participants who will be based at Karijini Eco Retreat luxury tented camp and will be coordinated by Global Gypsies. 

The package costs $5750 per person, twin share (single supplement of $1100) and includes the services of three staff, accommodation at Karijini Eco retreat, three meals a day, airport transfers, local transport and a pre-departure Meet the Artist Soiree at Ian de Souza's Fremantle studio. Participants need to arrange flights between Perth and Paraburdoo and supply their own art equipment.
