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!
