“I love Taaniko! Veranoa said it was addicting and it is. Her video’s were very precise and easy to follow so to me it was easy to learn. And absolutely I would recommend the Taaniko course to anyone and everyone!”

The mistake most people make is they think they can follow a couple of youtube videos and cobble together enough know-how to learn taaniko by themselves.
OR worse, learn from someone who claims they're a teacher but doesn't have enough experience to know the common mistakes learners make and how to avoid them.
Knowing exactly what you need to do, the pitfalls to avoid and the tips and tricks that give a great finish and make Taaniko fun and simple to learn only comes by following an experienced teacher.
Learning from an expert teacher saves you time, frustration and disappointment.
This is your chance to learn from a renowned and recognised expert in Taaniko (Veranoa Hetet).
