Students Learning With Us

"To learn weaving online is the best way, especially living overseas. Its hard to get anyone to teach you these days and everyone is busy. Even better is you can go at your own pace, especially when you need to find and gather materials."

Marlene West
Brisbane, Australia

"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! "

Awhina Tamarapa
Kapiti Coast, Aotearoa NZ

"The thing I love the most about the Hetet School of Maori Art, is that by being a student I have access to one of New Zealand’s premier weavers and the techniques that have been handed down to her through the generations of weavers in her family"

Heather Carrigan
Dargaville, Aotearoa NZ

"My gratitude and thanks to Veranoa Hetet for teaching the intricate techniques required to start a piece of work, for coaching us through its development, for inspiring our own creativity for ensuring that we all “got the hand rhythm” correct and for enabling us"

Doris Kaua

"I am absolutely loving the course! Veranoa is a wonderful teacher and gracious lady with a lovely manner. It is an honour to learn from her. The online learning format is ideal, enabling me to learn at my own pace."
