Māori Weaving with Veranoa Hetet

The Satisfaction of Success!

Trying to learn ad hoc with different teachers, night classes, you tube videos or books can leave you confused and unsure
BUT when you follow a tried and tested method, based on generations of experience, from a family of world-renowned Māori weavers with thousands of successful students . . . you can be sure that what you're learning is the real-deal.
The structured, well thought out lessons that give you the confidence you need to progress, will save you frustration, time and second-guessing.
AND as our members say
"I could listen to Veranoa ALL Day. Her voice is so calming."
The magic is in The Matrix® - a special series of weaving lessons taught in a very special way.
If you follow Veranoa as she guides you through The Matrix® series you'll not only learn the same way Veranoa was taught, you'll also experience surprising Aha! moments and expand your own creativity along the way.
The Matrix® was developed by renowned weaver Erenora Puketapu-Hetet along with her teaching-assistant, daughter Veranoa. Together they developed an elegant and effective way for student weavers to learn by combining traditional ways of teaching with contemporary best-practice for remote learners.
At the heart of The Matrix® are Māori traditional values and customary practises.
