Shibari Intermediate Series

You've learned the basics... now what?
Sold Out!

Join us for our second intermediate series, where you will learn several shibari skills and harnesses. By the end of the fourth class, you'll be putting it all together to create fun, connective floor scenes with your partner.


This series of classes is aimed at advanced beginner students. Those interested in participating should know how to tie single- and double-column ties, forward vs. reverse tension, common hitches & frictions (half hitch, Munter hitch, X-friction, L-friction, & half moon friction), and lock-offs/how to burn rope.

In this 4-part series, we will teach you skills and harnesses needed to grow from a rope bondage beginner into an intermediate student, culminating in how to use these skills and harnesses in floor scenes. The series consists of four classes:

  • Rope 211: The Mermaid Tie and Rope 213: The Thigh Harness. In this class, we will learn two lower body harnesses: one in which the thighs are bound together and another which binds just one thigh.
  • Rope 200: Arms-Free Chest Harnesses and Rope 210: Hip Harnesses. In this class, we will learn an arms-free chest harness and a hip harness. We will discuss elements that make successful harnesses and ways to modify patterns to work better for you/your partner's body.
  • Rope 202: An Arms In Front Harness and Rope 221: The Calf-Binder Many bottoms like to have their arms restrained during play, but many cannot sustain positions with the arms behind the back. This class will teach you a comfortable, sustainable arms-in-front harness, as well as a tie which binds the calves and ankles together.
  • Rope 230: Connective Floorwork Now that you have several harnesses in your rope toolkit, we'll teach you how to use them to create fun, connective floor scenes with your partner.

Tickets are $60/pair for all 4 classes. If you want to avoid paying the processing fees charged by Forbidden Tickets, please select the "free" ticket and indicate in the comments section which payment method you'd like to use. We accept cash, checks, debit/credit cards, Venmo (@ropespaced), PayPal (@ropespaced), or Cashapp ($ropespaced).

We are limiting attendance to 4 tying pairs. We strongly recommend that you bring a partner to practice on, as not everything we teach will be self-tie-friendly.

Each class is 2 hours long and does not include time to practice after class. Each class is scheduled 2-3 weeks apart to give you time to practice your new skills at home.

Some other notes for the group:

  • 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. If you have signed these previously, you do not need to sign new ones!
  • 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.
  • Dress comfortably in clothing that isn't too loose or flowy and still permits a full range of motion (many people wear workout clothing). Try to choose fabrics that aren't slippery. Vanilla to the door, no nudity inside; genitals must be covered.
  • 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.
