This rope bondage workshop will be a hands-on class with active participation.  The workshop is fully inclusive and open for individuals of all genders and skill levels. We will briefly analyze the methodology of sensual rope bondage highlighting rope bondage as a erotic process rather than a simple means to an end. To begin, we will summarize 4 elements of sensual rope bondage: Set up, Intent, Connection, Unravel. Following, we will focus on 4 rope handling skills/techniques for increasing tension, flow, and intimate connection with your partner/s.  At the end we will have the skills to tie both a fisherman’s harness and a spiral futomomo.  d

Prerequisites: None. This class is designed for all levels including new beginners. The ability to tie a “single column tie” is not required but will help you. Participants are encouraged to bring their own rope if they have some, however, loaner rope will be provided.
