Hetet School of Māori Art
Learn to weave with our renowned expertise and proven online courses
A weaver in every whānau Māori
Upholding the mana of mahi raranga
Creating a legacy for their uri
Our whānau have been weaving and carving for generations.
We've taught on marae, at Wānanga, at the Institute of Māori Arts and Crafts, at the Open Polytechnic of NZ and more. What we found after decades of teaching is that government funded programmes and institutions place unnecessary requirements on learners and restrict the way we prefer to teach.
We prefer a style of teaching and learning that is more aligned with traditional ways:
When the student is ready
In tune with the seasons
Focused on practise rather than theory
In our quest to be autonomous and make our programmes more widely available to people who would not otherwise have access to this mātauranga - in Janaury 2015 we brought our renowned teaching online.
Since then, we've taught hundreds of people to create a woven legacy via our online courses and programmes.
So, if you're wanting to create taonga for your whānau - we can definitely help you!
Our Students Say
"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
