Box Tie Studio - September Class

Who wants to learn some harnesses?

Come learn two of Cait's favorite harnesses: the Woven Heart harness (as seen on Shibari Study) and a hybrid hip-thigh harness that has never been taught before!


Please note the difference from our usual time - this group is from 12-3, not 12:30-3:30 like usual!

This month, we are only teaching one class aimed at intermediate and advanced students; for our beginner classes, please see the listing for our first Beginner Series.

This class will feature two harnesses suitable for partial and full suspensions. The first is the Woven Heart harness, as seen on Shibari Study. This harness features a flat woven pattern in the front and an extra-thick lower chest band, making it comfortable in face-down positions and more. The second harness is one that Cait initially improvised during a scene a few months ago and has developed since. It is a fully functional and comfortable hip harness fused with a full thigh harness, perfect for multiple transitions and positions, especially if you're interested in futomomo alternatives.

The prerequisites for this class are a solid, non-collapsing single column tie and widely used frictions and hitches, including half hitches, munter hitches, hojo cuffs, half-moon frictions, and X-frictions. You can find tutorials for these on The Duchy, Rope365, Shibari Study, and our YouTube tutorial on single column ties. If you plan on loading these harnesses, you must know how to tie hangers and uplines. These skills are not being taught at this class.

Class will run from 12:00-1:30. Following that, we will have our normal free time (1:30-3). You can socialize, have scenes, practice tying, or use one of the rigs. If you do a suspension, you must be familiar with tying harnesses, hangers, and uplines, as we cannot guarantee that there will be someone knowledgeable to supervise or help you.

We are implementing a maximum capacity of 30 attendees due to limited space, so if you want to come, you should quickly reserve your tickets online. You can reserve a ticket online and pay for it an alternate way if you want to avoid this site's processing fees; just select the appropriate ticket and pay for it using one of the methods listed.

Some other notes for the group:

  1. Please review our group rules. You can also print and sign our liability waiver and Code of Conduct Agreement from the same page on our website. If you don't, we'll have you sign them when you check in.
  2. Bring a blanket or yoga mat to sit or tie on, if desired, as well as water, rope, and safety shears. There are a few chairs. We will have loaner rope available to borrow if you don't own any.
  3. Dress comfortably in clothing that isn't too loose or flowy and still permits a full range of motion (many people wear workout clothing). Vanilla to the door, no nudity inside; genitals must be covered.
  4. You can come alone or with a partner, but we won't match up single attendees for you. You can pair yourselves up if desired.
  5. All attendees are required to be vaccinated against COVID, and we will check your ID and proof of vaccination at the door. If you can't be vaccinated for legitimate reasons, please reach out to us beforehand.
  6. Please don't attend if you're feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 (review symptoms here). If you can't attend due to illness, we'll refund your tickets fully.
  7. You can start arriving after 11:30 (please note the time change). Please try to arrive early! We will be closing the doors at 12 and making opening remarks so we can start ASAP. If you know you're going to be late, please text Cait at (207) 558-2930.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to us! You can also contact @ropespaced (Cait) or @Griffin207 (Jack) on FetLife. Otherwise, we hope to see you there!
