This event has passed.

Suspension is perhaps the ultimate bondage – exhilarating, dramatic, demanding, and dangerous.

This workshop covers "almost" suspension, where the person being tied stays on the floor but with a vertical line taking some of their weight.

You'll learn basic vertical-line techniques and will acquire some of the fundamental skills required for suspension bondage.

If you're already doing suspensions, this workshop will make you more thoughtful about your style and more confident with your technique.

NOTE - Max will have some carabiners for sale at the workshop. Please show up 15-30 minutes early if you would like to buy rope or gear.

The workshop covers concepts, equipment, knots useful for suspension, and a number of exciting positions - all with a constant regard for safety.

Much of the class will consist of hands-on exercises to help you get familiar with the material in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The emphasis is on learning, having fun, and building confidence.

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to practice the basic techniques. Rope Bottoms - this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

This workshop assumes no previous bondage experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations. Please consider this workshop even if you're already doing suspensions - reviewing the fundamentals can be valuable whatever your skill level.
