Have fun! with Taaniko when you learn how to weave a purse or a case for glasses and how to cast on for a wallhanging or weave a decorative stitch.

Frequently asked questions

What if I'm already enrolled in a course or programme with the Hetet School of Māori Art?

You can still join! You can switch to any plan you like. We will add you in at the same place you are now.
If you choose the Toroa or Tara Iti plan then we'll also deduct the total amount you have paid to date from the fee. 

NOTE: Weave Korowai Programme members wanting to switch to Mō Ngā Uri will need to start at Module 1 in Raranga and resume kākahu once they complete the Raranga modules. If doing so, you will be taken back to the last wānanga you were weaving in Kākahu and continue on as a Mō Ngā Uri member. 

Can I join if I'm not Māori?

If you share our values and vision then we welcome you to apply.

We have people learning with us who have married into whānau Māori and are weaving for their tamariki and mokopuna. We also have several native weavers from Australia, USA and Canada who are re-connecting to their own traditions through Māori weaving. We love that!

I'm not ready now but can I join at a later date?

Yes, absolutely. However, the 15% discount only applies to those joining as a founding member before 16 July 2022. 

Can I teach others what I learn in the programme?

We are happy for you to teach the tamariki and mokopuna in your own immediate whānau so that this matauranga, maramatanga and mohiotanga will be re-established within your family for you and your uri.

We do not give our permission for you to pass on what we teach you to others beside your own tamariki and mokopuna.

There are two reasons for this:

1. We are teaching our whānau way of weaving. Our way of teaching is precious to us and we share it with you for the purpose of helping you become a Legacy Weaver rather than a teacher of weaving.

2. Our goal for you is that you create a woven legacy for yourself and your whānau. This will require your time, energy and focus. On the other hand, those who teach weaving tend to give their time, energy and creativity to their tauira.
As a result most weaving teachers do very little weaving.

For all these reasons, our programme is not for school teachers, other kaiako raranga or anyone else who intends taking and modifying our matauranga for their own teaching purposes (whether that is to profit or not from doing so).
We consider this a gross breach of copyright and a show of contempt and disrespect on all counts. 
Testimonials

What Our Tauira Say

Drag to resize
"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.
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.

A profoundly beautiful experience."
Kiriana O'Connell

"I feel priviledged to be a student of the Hetet School of Māori Art. I think you have captured well the legacy of your whānau teaching and adapted for the future survival of our precious artform using an innovative digital platform. Tau ke!

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"
