Partial Suspension Shibari w/ Seattle Shibari
Partial Suspension Bondage is beautiful, sexy, and intense. Many experienced rope tops and bottoms actually prefer it to full suspension for play, and it's an important intermediate step to doing full suspension. Come learn how at this workshop!
In this 3-hour workshop, we'll cover:
Evaluating Hard Points
Body Manipulation & Rope Handling
Basic Top Line Techniques & Line Management
Tying into harnesses and tying limbs
Safety & Consent
Sample Partial Suspension Body Positions and Play
Tops should be comfortable tying either a chest harness or a structurally solid 2-rope gote shibari (TK/box tie), be aware of potential nerves issues associated with rope bondage, and have solid communication skills around same when working with their partner. If they do not wish to use a TK/box tie for the course, it's fine to tie a hands-free chest harness, instead.
Bottoms should be comfortable being tied in a gote shibari/TK or chest harness, be competent in monitoring themselves for nerve/circulation issues associated with rope bondage, & have solid communication skills around same when working with their partner.
Due to the detailed & time-intensive nature of this workshop, choosing one person in the duo to tie will be optimal.
This workshop is appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types! To ensure personal attention to each participant, class size will be limited to 8 duos.
(6-8) 8-meter lengths of 6mm hemp or jute rope. You may use 8mm jute or hemp for your main suspension line, if you prefer, or other strong lines such as Posh or Hempex.
