This event has passed.

Here's an opportunity to benefit from Gorgone's experience as a professional rope model and to discuss your collective experiences as bottoms.

We will talk about:

- Giving feedback
- Improving communication skills
- Developing body awareness
- Exploring the impacts of conscious body management
- Breathing as a key

When: 7PM to 9:30PM
Limited enrollment: To ensure a good experience for all attendees, the workshop will be limited to 30 students. Preregistration / prepayment is required.

We suggest attending this workshop with a partner that can tie you, as there will likely be a hands-on component. Riggers: come and support your rope partners in their development as models. Note that attendees will be doing floor bondage NOT suspensions or partial suspensions for the exercises.

This information will be valuable for everyone.
Some rope will be provided for the workshop, but bring your own rope if you have it.
This class is appropriate for all genders and orientations.
Prerequisite required: None.

About the Educator:

Gorgone is a french Kinbaku model and rigger.

She discovered Shibari in 2010. Immediately seduced, she started looking for real power exchange experiences in ropes and became interested in traditional Japanese rope bondage.

Her meeting and first session with Wildties was the decisive turning point that made her a Kinbaku model as a main passion and full-time job.

Her path as a rigger started naturally and she quickly became one of Europe's main riggers. Her identity as a rigger was shaped by constant exposure to many different styles that she absorbed, appropriated and developed. She has had the privilege to learn from some of the world's greatest teachers to include Esinem, Otonawa, Naka Akira, and Nawashi Kanna.

Her experience as a professional rope bottom brings useful knowledge and understanding from the other side of the rope to her rigging.

She's been creating and running Kinbaku LuXuria in 2012 and is now organizing BOUND, a monthly rope Jam and performances night in London, with Nina Russ and Bruce Esinem.

Gorgone is active in the international rope scene as a performer, teacher and simple rope enthusiast.

She has taught and/or performed as a model and/or rigger in Paris, Berlin, London, Roma, Athens, Praha, San Francisco, New-York, and Tokyo.
