I love to teach others the joy of working with their hands. I specialize in Macrame and Macra-weaving. I make learning the basics fun and as simple as possible. If you can tie your shoes, then you can macrame. Then I encourage each student to explore as he/she creates finished projects suitable for showing off to friends and family.

Loved it! Hoping for more online options. The evening class format was perfect!

Class was well taught. Katrina did great job explaining the knots and the steps in our project creation. Her videos were very helpful for reviewing things she covered in the classes. I like most of those in the class had done macrame back in the 1970s-80s but needed a refresher on the knots. Having the class spread over 4 weeks was great for giving us time to think about our project design and then adjust/redo parts - this would not have been possible in a weekend class.

I thoroughly enjoyed the class. The instructor was excellent and I only wish it wasn’t over

Great! I accomplished what I wanted to, and enjoyed the process. The instructor was very helpful, and really created the non-competitive environment I've experienced in the in-person classes at JCCFS.

But only if in person was not possible for some reason. (explanation for the previous question) Since I could not go to Brasstown, this worked for me. And Katrina worked very hard to help individually, and in smaller groups for a person new to Macreme (me). She is a good teacher.

Because I have a hard time getting away, and the Folk School is some distance from my home, I truly appreciate the online format. I still was not able to attend each class live, but love having the resources and recorded class available for when I am able to carve out some time. All the additional recorded demos and such are so incredibly helpful! Katrina did a great job.
