Shibari 103: Beautiful Bondage Ties
Ready to expand your repertoire of beautiful and restrictive ties? Come learn how to tie them with confidence!
In this 3-hour workshop, we'll take a detailed look at a collection of Japanese Rope Bondage ties, including the Two-Rope Gote Shibari (TK/Box Tie), Teppo Shibari (Rifle Tie), and Tengu Shibari (Goblin Tie), focusing on various arm positions, precise rope placement and tension, & several types of frictions. We'll also examine anatomy & safety issues associated with this tie, and learn tips & tricks for tying fluidly & with connection. Finally, we'll take a look at some of the possibilities around 'using up' the remaining rope in decorative ways (kazari).
Prerequisite: You should come to this course with prior, solid familiarity in basic rope bondage skills, be able to confidently tie a reliable, non-collapsing single-column tie, and be able to tie a basic one-rope Gote Shibari. It is definitely appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types!
To ensure personal attention to each participant, class size will be limited to 8 tying pairs. Due to the small class size, early registration is strongly recommended.

Hemp or Jute rope is recommended. Its also helpful to have some shorter lengths of rope in your kit. Short on rope? Well have a bit extra on hand to loan out to students.
