    First, let me brag on the instructor, Kenyatta. She is AWESOME. Not only is she extremely talented and creative in her craft of Macrame, but she is just as talented and creative with her instructing. She uses fun references to describe how to do certain knots, and she tells jokes along the way. The class size I attended was the perfect size - big enough for everyone to feed off each other's energy, but small enough for Kenyatta to help each person individually, so that their finished products are unique to their personalities. I had no experience with Macrame before this and felt totally comfortable the whole time. Highly recommend!

    This is the second class I've taken with Kenyatta - she is a fabulous teacher! You definitely will learn macrame basics and feel comfortable continuing to experiment on your own. If Kenyatta sees that you have the hang of the knotting, she'll show you new tricks and techniques . I'll be back for more!
