Veranoa Hetet: artist kōrero

This event has already taken place

Join master weaver and kaiako Veranoa Hetet QSM (Ngati Maniapoto, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Te Atiawa) on the opening weekend of her newest exhibition, Creating Potential, as she discusses how the past and future are woven closely together through these works.

In Creating Potential, Veranoa explores the notion that each of her works hold the past - building from traditional methods, patterns and stories of whakapapa. But they also hold the future—the exciting potential of creating something new, using contemporary materials, colours and techniques.

Woven with a deep sense of aroha for both past and future generations, Veranoa’s weaving upholds the creative legacy of her whakapapa by “seeing what can be, working out of what was”.
