Intro to Suspension Workshop with MisterBacon and Lief
Suspension rope bondage shouldn't be a mysterious thing that only a select few rope students have access to. In this day-long workshop, we'll explain the basics of rope suspension so that all students can leave with the confidence to explore suspension on their own.

Some topics covered in this class include:
-Safety
-Evaluation of harnesses for suspension
-Uplines and upline management
-Bottoming techniques to make suspension more sustainable
-Partial suspensions
-Full suspensions

Knowledge Needed:
-TOPS should know how to tie a non-collapsing single column tie, as well as a chest harness. Hands-involved or hands-free chest harnesses are both fine.
-BOTTOMS should have a good idea of their own risk profile, as well as some experience working on their own body awareness. Prior experience with suspension is not required.
-ALL TYING PARTIES should be able to communicate to their partner about their needs in a clear and non-judgmental way.

Please Bring:
-6-8 lengths of rope (I use 8m lengths of 5-6mm jute, but please use whatever material and length makes you most comfortable)
-Suspension gear such as climbing straps, carabiners, rings, etc. We will have limited supplies of these to share, so we encourage people to bring their own.
-Cutting tool
-Water
-Note-taking device
-Note: Please do not bring mats, as the venue will have them. However, you may want to bring layers, a cushion, or a small blanket. It can get cold when people are tying or being tied, and even sitting on mats all day can be hard for some people.

Class Schedule:
Saturday, 8/17/19, 11:00am-5:00pm (1 hr. break for lunch).

Presenter Bios:
MisterBacon (He/Him) is a rope jerk from Long Beach, CA who began his rope journey in 2013. He has been privileged to be able to teach in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Denver, Charlottesville (VA), Bellingham (WA), and to be featured as a presenter at FIRE and DesertBound. Bacon's goal with rope is to create something chaotic and beautiful. He has been called a "gleeful sadist."


Lief (She/Her) has been a rope Switch for the past five years. Shes has been obsessed with rope even before getting the chance to pick it up and now she cant put it down. She got her start in the Boston scene attending monthly skill shares.

Lief is excited to share her passion with you. She loves to teach classes surrounding an idea or emotion, where rope is the connection between two people.  She wants rope to help people go deeper emotionally, connect more authentically.
