I fell in love with Macrame five years ago! I 'm a fiber artist with a Masters in Fine Arts specializing in macrame and hand tufted rugs. I love how functionality, texture, and design come together, creating a balance between objects. My passion inspired the creation of Urban Macrame Fibers.

I've partnered with brands like Lululemon, West Elm, and AirBnB to name a few! Over the last few years I'm amassed nearly 10k followers on Instagram and had the honor of teaching over 1000 people the art of knotting.

I love facilitating workshops and sharing my love of macrame.

Just had a super fun afternoon class making a macrame plant hanger. Kenyatta was very friendly, the space was amazing. She had a really easy way of explaining things and kept coming around to make sure everything was coming out perfect. Absolutely in love with my piece and can’t wait to do more! Would definitely take another class from Kenyatta again!

If you’re thinking about taking a macrame class, definitely take this one!! Kae welcomed us into her adorable home and made our foray into macrame-ing such a pleasurable experience. Can’t wait to continue with my newly found skills on some more macrame projects. Thanks Kae!!!

Fantastic class! There isn’t many macrame classes offered in Chicagoland so I was thrilled when Kae posted this class. I really wanted to learn how to make a macrame wall plant hanger to have that personal touch in my home versus just buying online. I’m so glad I took the class, it wasn’t a hard skill to learn because of Kae! I also learn a lot better from in person demonstrations and from her pointing out when something was not correct. I absolutely love my macrame plant hanger and feel confident that I could make another one through the skills Kae taught me. It would have been difficult and more timely to teach myself online. Kae was super fun to talk to and had the class in her warm and inviting home. I would highly recommend this class to anyone!

I really enjoyed the macrame plant hanger class with Kae. The experience was great, and I feel like she taught us enough to be able to continue to do macrame on our own. It was a relaxed and casual environment, and I really enjoyed meeting and playing with her cute dog. She was a great teacher; I say this because I am terrible at following instructions (I'm the kinda person who has no patience in reading instructions when putting together things like IKEA furniture then gets frustrated about five minutes in when her husband has to take over), but she explained and demonstrated the different knots in a way that was very easy to practice and remember. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in learning macrame.

The perfect introduction to an activity I've been wanting to try for a long time. We starting making knots right away, listened to some jams, and enjoyed ourselves. Would do it again.

Kae fosters a relaxed atmosphere where she shares stories and connects on a personal level while teaching you a beautiful craft. I took my partner as a date and we had the most amazing time. I would totally recommend this experience to friends and really anyone interested in learning about macrame. If you like creating things, working with your hands, or just trying something new, this is the experience for you.
