Veranoa Hetet

I've introduced thousands of people to the world of Māori weaving and I never tire of the joy it brings those who learn.

It's particularly satisfying to see someone who never had  the opportunity to grow up with things Māori, start to feel at ease and more confident simply through learning how to weave a kono or a kete.

It makes me sad to hear stories about people who signed up to a weaving course somewhere, and ended up feeling completely overwhelmed or worse, ostracised or made to feel ashamed (yes, that's actually happened to some people). 

That sort of thing should never happen! Especially with weaving. It's such a great past time and an ideal way to connect to whakapapa, understand tikanga and reclaim the traditional arts for yourself and your whānau.

So if you thought about joining me to learn but you're not 100% sure then this is an ideal chance to give it a go and see how you feel at the end of the 5 days.

Next to weaving itself, teaching others how to weave is one of my greatest pleasures. 

I look forward to opening the door to the world of Māori weaving and sharing what lies beyond with you.
