How hundreds of people are successfully learning to weave kākahu for their whānau without any prior skills or having to write essays about weaving and from the comfort of their own homes.

Kiriana O'Connell

"A profoundly beautiful experience

This has been an incredible journey full of joy, surprises, support and blisters. I have learnt so much every step of the way but I’d have to say I didn’t expect to feel so close to ōku tūpuna as I went through the process of korowai."

Here's what our students say:


"I feel privileged to be a student of the Hetet School of Māori Art.

I love the fact that I have personal, private tuition in my own home, at any time, at my own pace. Veranoa is right with me, taking me through each step, conveying everything - a-tinana, a-wairua (in body and in spirit).

It is a pure luxury to have this special method of teaching given to us"

"Learning to weave with Veranoa has opened my life, and made me More.


I feel like a more complete version of myself having been on this amazing journey."

Using my hands (knees/legs/arms) to recreate the same methods and processes of those who have gone before me was profound - I really felt my place in the continuum of time and raranga, whatu and tāniko will continue to express itself (te ira raranga) long after I’m gone.

Veranoa Hetet

I Weave, I Breathe

Weaving is literally my life. I weave every day.

Next to weaving, teaching is my greatest passion.

I grew up in a family of weavers. Many of the women in my family were and are weavers: my great-grandmother, Rangimarie Hetet, and great-aunt Diggeress Te Kanawa, my mum Erenora Puketapu-Hetet were all renowned Maori weavers and teachers of weaving.

I learned to weave and to teach weaving by my mothers side. She was a wonderful teacher and I hope to impart to you the knowledge and joy of weaving that she gave me.

Over the past 35 plus years, I have hundreds of people how to weave kākahu (both in person and online) and I know that if you follow the video lessons with me that you will very quickly acquire the skills you need to whatu kākahu for yourself and your whānau.

Happy weaving!
