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!
