    I really loved my class in Macrame I think I found a new hobby! I really was fortunate, I was the only person in the class. I got a lot of one on one attention. I have been looking at Macrame on Pinterest, but it’s nothing like doing it in person.

    Kenyatta was a wonderful teacher, able to help us with three separate projects. I love how small the class was, that she was able to help us whenever and give us ideas/feedback. There were also very open communication about the other different projects that she had around the house.

    Im really glad I signed up for the Macrame experience. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kenyatta. She's a really great instructor; patient, good directions, and healthy space for exploring the knotting on my own. Ive been looking into macrame online for a while and it was really helpful to learn it in person. She had all the materials ready, and even directed me to websites and vendors where I can purchase materials to keep on the macrame journey. Her most important pieces of advice for me were that there are really no mistakes as long as you do the same thing on each side, and letting go of the idea of "perfection" Very helpful for me to be able to let go and enjoy the where the weaving takes me. I came home with a lovely wall hanging. Thank you Kenyatta!
