Veranoa Hetet has weaving in her DNA. Hailing from Waiwhetu in Lower Hutt, Veranoa comes from a long line of weavers and has a lifetime’s experience in crafting intricate Māori cloaks, garments and kete. These days, Veranoa is passing on her vast knowledge of traditional weaving in “the modern way” - via online courses via the Hetet School of Maori Art. She also has an exhibition at The Dowse gallery in Lower Hutt, which is open until the end of February.
