  • Secure Rope Scene Evaluation/Attendance & Cutting The Rope Cord
  • Crafting A Collaborative Shibari Scene

Information will be presented in a hybrid format: alternating lecture and hands-on tying.

All rope interested folks will benefit - (tying/tied, top/bottom, beginner/advanced.)

Items Needed: 1-3 approx. 30ft rope lengths of rope, cutting tool, note taking tools


RayzOfAsh insists rope is for anyBody and has a passion for guiding others to have a similar understanding for their journey. Primarily a person in ropes, she believes educated bottoms are vital to the progression of rope bondage, with a shared responsibility through having a voice and learning to work directly with their trained tops through increased self-awareness, empathy, and communication. For years, they have been co-teaching a rope lab and risk roundtable and provide rope education locally in Las Vegas, where they love growing with others in ropes through a lifestyle community of support and inclusion.

RayzOfAsh approaches ropes from a body-positive foundation and awareness of a mental health professional/educator.

She/they have attended numerous weekend intensives, cons, rope classes/events, as well as independent research, and is forever a student.


$35 - $50 in advance. $40 - $55 at the door. Please pay at the level you can comfortably afford.

We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.

The regular ticket is $40. This is what most people should pay.

The $35 ticket is offered for those for whom the $40 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $40 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $35.

Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $50 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it.

So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.

No one turned away for lack of funds.

If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.
