I am just so in love with Taaniko, it's like my addiction..... I really love playing with colours and patterns. Thank you Whaea Veranoa, your Taaniko course has opened up my world, to being more creative. This journey has been awesome. I find Taaniko relaxing, refreshing and fulfilling.”

About Veranoa Hetet

I Weave, I Breathe
Weaving is literally my life. I weave every day.
Next to weaving, teaching is my greatest passion.
I grew up in a family of weavers. Many of the women in my family were and are weavers: my great-grandmother, Rangimarie Hetet, and great-aunt Diggeress Te Kanawa, my mum Erenora Puketapu-Hetet were all renowned Maori weavers.
I learned to weave and to teach weaving by my mothers side. She was a wonderful teacher and I hope to impart to you the knowledge and joy of Taaniko that she gave me.
Over the past 30 plus years, I have taught thousands of people how to weave and I know that if you follow the video lessons you will very quickly acquire the skills you need to enjoy Taaniko.
Happy weaving!

Frequently asked questions

How long do I have access to the course content?

Access to the lessons is for 12 months which is more than enough time for most learners to complete the course and become proficient at Taaniko.

Results are dependant on the time and effort you put in to viewing the lessons and practising the technique
It is possible to learn the Taaniko technique within a few days but most people require practise over several months to become confident and improve tension. 

How much do materials cost?

Depending on what you choose to weave with, the cost of materials can range from a few dollars to tens of dollars to weave 2-3 sampler pieces.

Materials such as cotton or bamboo threads, embroidery silks and macrame twine are readily available from haberdashery suppliers online.

I signed up to the Joy of Taaniko course first then the Taaniko Projects separately - can I still get the book free?

Only if the combined cost of the two courses is equal to or exceeds $299

I paid more than $299 when I joined to learn Taaniko with Veranoa - Can I get the book and a refund for the difference?
