Kenyatta Forbes is a Chicago based multi-disciplinary artist who uses her own experiences in exploration of fiber as a lease for understanding the world. Using a mixture of traditional hand techniques like macrame, weaving, knotting, sewing, and leather making, she combines elements to create narratives through fiber. She is passionate about building community and sees workshops as a space for making, healing, meditation, and togetherness. Focusing more on process than completion, pieces are not planned but born and developed over time.
