Shibari for Lovers
Come learn to make your rope play hotter, deeper, and more intimate in a fun, playful, supportive class!

Fancy ties are cool, but for many people, the real attraction of doing rope is the powerful feelings of intimacy, power, and surrender it evokes.  In this three-hour class, we'll explore safe, beautiful, and effective ways to move away from just putting knots on your partner, and build skill and intuition for tying the spirit.  Drawing especially on the traditional and beautiful ties found in the Japanese art of Shibari/Kinbaku, and core physical partner skills found in martial arts and dance, we'll explore exercises for building intimacy with rope. We'll also learn basic knots and ties needed to make your rope look and feel sexy on your partner, and of course, examine safety issues as well.

Tops: This is a great class for learning those precise tying and key soft skills for making a rope scene hot. Bottoms: This is a great class for learning how to mesh and connect with your partner in rope! Expect to spend the majority of the class getting plenty of hands-on practice in a friendly, non-competitive environment.
There is no prerequisite for this course, and it is definitely appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types.

Equipment & Dress: Comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and snug fitting. Rope tops will need to bring:
Yoga mat
(3-4) 8 meter or 30 ropes, 5-6mm in diameter. Hemp or Jute is recommended. It's also helpful to have some shorter lengths of rope in your kit. Short on rope? We'll have a bit extra on hand to loan out to students.

To ensure personal attention to each participant, class size will be limited to 8 duos. Due to the small class size, early registration is highly recommended.

No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.

About the Instructor: Jonathan (Seattle Shibari) is a Seattle-based rope artist who ties for photoshoots, co-creates concept art, and teaches Japanese-style rope bondage. He works to spread appreciation for this beautiful art in the Pacific Northwest via his website SeattleShibari.com, and travels yearly to Japan to train with his teachers. Jonathan has taught numerous sold-out workshops, and teaches and performs internationally.
