About The Matrix™
The Matrix™ was developed and designed by Erenora Puketapu-Hetet and Veranoa Hetet, in the 1990s after decades of teaching many hundreds of students throughout Aotearoa NZ.
The Matrix™ consists of a specific series of lessons taught in a very special way that our whanau use to successfully guide student weavers on a journey of self discovery and mastery through the traditional Māori weaving techniques, from Raranga beginner to advanced Kākahu weaver.
Following The Matrix results in:
- Weavers who are equipped with the values, skills and understanding to weave the range of traditional techniques and to adapt them so they can weave almost any item they imagine
- Weavers who are confident, capable, highly skilled and creative
- A phenomenon that we call the Miyagi effect whereby the student experiences unique 'Aha' moments and gains skills and insights and that can be applied later in their weaving journey.
