LEARN TO WEAVE

Following The Matrix With Veranoa Hetet

Go From Absolute Beginner To Weaving Capable in Just 8 Weeks Part-time Without The Hassle of Finding A Class To Fit Your Busy Life!

LEARN USING 'THE MATRIX' DEVELOPED BY ERENORA PUKETAPU-HETET & HER DAUGHTER VERANOA AND FOLLOWED BY HUNDREDS OF SUCCESSFUL WEAVERS

START WITH SIMPLE BASKETS

In our Māori Weaving Foundation course you will build the skills and techniques of raranga from the very beginning to establish strong muscle memory.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced weaver, if you spend time on developing the basic raranga technique then you will find that weaving more complex items later, such as kete or wahakura, will come more easily.

 

YOUR FIRST LESSON

The Kono, four-cornered basket, is the basic building block for all your raranga skills. Of all the lessons, this is probably THE most important one. 

NEXT - KONAE

You will then learn how to weave konae which are two-cornered baskets.

TISSUE BOX COVER

Then you'll learn how to weave a kono roa and once you've mastered that you'll learn how to weave a tissue box cover. 

AND SO MUCH MORE!

You'll also learn whiri - a plait-like weave with 4, 6, 8 and 10 whenu (weaving strips) and other bonus lessons AND you will be able to access the full range of our Student Services to enhance your learning experience while you are with us.

Learn Online When It Suits You

Access Our Expertise and Knowledge from wherever you are in the world via the internet on desktop, laptop or mobile device.

ACCESS TE RITO ONLINE

You'll be invited to join Veranoa's virtual classroom - Te Rito Online where you can share your weaving journey with our worldwide community of weavers where you'll be encouraged and find inspiration.

Follow A Proven System 

Developed by Erenora Puketapu-Hetet and her daughter Veranoa, over decades of teaching weaving to students from all backgrounds and abilities.


The Matrix has proven time and again to be the easiest way to learn to weave. The student progresses from kono to kete to kete whakairo and taaniko and onto kākahu with ease. 

Learn All You Need Following The Matrix

 

"The Matrix is the best learning tool ever. You can go over and over the lessons, go back and revisit older lessons and catch those things you missed the first time around. For someone like me who needs to repeat repeat repeat this is a winner."

"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

"I highly recommend The Hetet School of Maori Art to all who want to join a wonderful teacher, an amazing online supportive student network, and anyone who wishes to build a solid foundation in their weaving future."
