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 predicament bondage looking at the 4 S's: Sustainable, Stress, Suffer, and Sweat. We will look at various predicament positions and discuss creative approaches for “turn up the heat”. The technical ties we will cover will be single column/double column ties, lashing to a pole, and ebi shibari (shrimp tie).
