Beginner Workshops

Rope 101

This is an introduction to tying session that will give you some basics so that you have a skillset you can incorporate into your scenes. No prior knowledge required! All ties can be self-tied so you do not need a partner, and provides an ability to practice at home.

The ties include a non-collapsing single column, and a futomomo.

Connective Rope

A moving rope scene needs the active participation of both participants.

This session helps you to focus on using the rope to make and maintain a connection with the person within your ropes, how to move away from worrying about the knots and onto your partner. We will also include how the bottom can take an active part in the scene, and the importance of their feedback for the top’s development.

The pre-requisite for the top is a single column, there are no essential pre-requisites for the bottom. Both parties need to have a good ability to communicate.

Improvised Ties

This session builds upon the basics of rope bondage, allowing you to create ties that suit the mood of the scene.

Through the use of single column ties and frictions, you’ll be taught the ability to create shapes to suit; as well as the important safety points when straying off the beaten path.

The pre-requisite for the top is a non-collapsing single column and a basic awareness of frictions. The bottom will need an awareness of circulation loss and nerve impingement and how this feel. Both parties need to have a good ability to communicate.

Intermediate Workshops

Getting Reactions in Rope

Learn how to get reactions out of your bottom using shin rope, futomomos, and other simple ties. We will also look at how reactions can be intensified by various positions and the use of additional implements.

Participants will need to be able to tie a non-collapsing single column.

Not Just Rope…

As much as you can have fun using only rope in a scene, this session is all about how rope can be used as a foundation for play with other toys. There will be a discussion around the safety to keep in mind when mixing rope with other play, then heading in to ties that work well for play that is ‘Not Just Rope’.

Participants will need to be able to tie a non-collapsing single column, and have a basic awareness of frictions (although any specifically used will be walked through during the session.)

Asymmetry

How do you keep the bottom’s focus during a tie – one way/ is to use asymmetry. This keeps the body off it’s natural equilibrium and forces the bottom to concentrate.

The level of this session can be tailored to the group, and can be floorwork or involve partial suspensions.

The pre-requisite for the top is a non-collapsing single column and a basic awareness of frictions. The bottom will need an awareness of circulation loss and nerve impingement and how this feel. Both parties need to have a good ability to communicate.

Custom Rope Workshops

Have an idea of something you’d like to learn, or want someone to come and help a group lab out some ideas – just give me a shout.

Non-Rope Workshops

Fire Play

Pieman3000 will share his knowledge of fire play, covering the use of both a fire wand and flash cotton. The session will start with some all-important safety information before moving on to a practical demonstration. Attendees will be able to practice fire play with supervision, or experience fire play following the initial demonstration.
