November Rope Class

Come learn Connective Floorwork or The Basics!

This month we're offering Rope 230: Connective Floorwork (intermediate) & Rope 110: The Basics (new beginner).


This month, we're going back to our dual-class format for the first half of the group (12:30-2).

In Rope 110: The Basics, students will learn the basics of rope bondage or shibari. We'll go over some basic consent & negotiation tips, safety, general information about rope itself, and fundamental knots (single column & double column ties). There are no prerequisites for this class. Bring a couple of hanks of rope (approx. 30 feet or 7-8 meters each), or borrow some of ours.

In Rope 230: Connective Floorwork, we'll learn that rope is about much more than knots! Connecting with your rope partner is so important. This class is about building and creating good energy and connection with your partner before, during, and after play. We will go over the importance of touch, pace, atmosphere, and energy; good ways to warm up and start your scene; how to create the reactions you want in your bottom; body handling and rope handling; and how to bring your scene to an end to provide aftercare. You will need a partner and to know how to tie a single column tie to participate; you can learn a SCT here. You should also know some basic harnesses, common frictions & hitches, and lock-offs. Bring several hanks of rope (approx. 30 feet or 7-8 meters each).

Following the classes, we'll have our usual free time (2-3:30), during which you can socialize, practice, or scene.

We are implementing a maximum capacity of 24 attendees due to limited space, so if you want to come, you should quickly reserve your tickets online! Also, if you want to avoid Forbidden Tickets's fees, you can select the appropriate ticket and pay an alternate way. We accept cash, checks, credit/debit cards, PayPal (@ropespaced), Venmo (@ropespaced), and Cashapp ($ropespaced). If you pay one of these ways ahead of time (not at the door), please indicate which order it's for (the email address on your order works). If the ticket cost is a little out of your budget, contact us and maybe we can work something out!

Some notes for the group:

  1. Please review our group rules. Attending the jam constitutes your agreement to follow the rules. If you aren't willing to do that, please don't attend. You can also print our Liability Waiver and Code of Conduct Agreement from the same page on our website to speed up the check-in process. If you don't print them ahead of time, we'll have you sign them at the door.
  2. Bring a blanket or yoga mat to sit or tie on, if desired, as well as water, rope, and safety gear. There are only a few chairs.
  3. Vanilla-ish to the door. Inside, genitals must be covered. We encourage you to dress however you'd like otherwise! If you wear clothing, we recommend items that are form-fitting (not loose/flowy), not slippery, and that allow a full range of motion; many people wear workout clothing. Try to avoid bras with underwire as well.
  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, 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. We will have loaner rope available to borrow if you don't own any.
  7. Please don't attend if you're feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19 (review symptoms here).
  8. You can start arriving at 12:00. Please arrive early to get through the check-in process and get set up so that we can start promptly at 12:30. If you know you're going to be late, text Cait at (207) 558-2930. If you arrive and the door is locked, please ring the doorbell.
  9. There is plenty of parking. When you turn left onto Ingersoll Drive, the parking lot is the first left, and we are the first building on the left. We are the second-floor end unit; you'll see large windows and skylights from outside. Please text Cait at (207) 558-2930 if you have trouble finding us.
  10. No smoking indoors.
  11. No guns or weapons allowed on the premises.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at! You can also message @ropespaced (Cait) or @Griffin207 (Griffin) on FetLife.
