Afsana's 10 years experience in the wedding and bridal industry has given her first hand insight in what it takes to become a Henna Artist, but more importantly how to thrive in the business. Together with her Masters research in Education she has comprised a henna training syllabus which aims to equip students with everything they need to know in how to become a professional henna artist.
Her academic background has given her the knowledge and ability to conduct the perfect learning environment focusing on a humanistic approach to teaching and learning. The class is kept small to adhere to each student's learning needs and offer as much one to one student attention as possible. Moreover, a 'Student Aftercare' service is available for advice and support from Afsana including a post class meeting to check up on student's progress (terms and conditions apply).
