    I loved Modern Macrame! It was pretty easy once you got a hang of the knots. I made a cute planter that I can't wait to hang in my apartment! The teacher was great and the restaurant next door provided the class with free scones, coffee and mimosas!! It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I look forward to taking another macrame class.

    Loved the class! Small group so we had very hands on individual attention. Kenyatta was a great teacher! Muffins and coffee from Currency Exchange Café were delish. Loved my wall hanging when it was done. Highly recommend!

    I had a great time learning how to make my first macrame wall hanging. It turned out great! Kenyatta was a positive and personable instructor. I definitely want to keep making more macrame wall hangings!

    I only have great things to say about Kenyetta's macrame course! What I loved most was her philosophy to teaching, which was to not teach us a pattern, but to teach us different knots so that we had the ability to design our own pattern. We all ended up with completely original pieces of art and the pride of knowing that we created it ourselves!
