Rope Basics for Domination and Play

Caritia will teach the fundamental basics from her experience with Japanese Rope Bondage/Shibari over this two day course. The intention for this workshop is for participants to take away simple ways to play, as well as improvise with partners or clients within a dominant context with rope. The workshop will consist of six hours per day of teaching, plus breaks of eighty minutes per day.

Participants are requested to bring with them 3 ropes, if you have them. There will be practice ropes available. Wear comfortable clothing that allows easy movement – no jeans, no leather, no latex. No previous experience necessary.

Meditation, Intention setting, health and safety around rope play, rope terminology, single column, double column, tension and counter tension, basic upper body ties, consent, safe words and signals, practical ties with regular household objects.

Snacks and drinks available. Please bring your own lunch.

Be advised, this is an inclusive space for sexworkers, queer, non-binary and BPoC individuals. Anyone may register for this workshop.
