One person with long dark hair looks up at the other with shoulder length blown hair, and holds tightly onto the shibari rope bondage on their chest.

This workshop will provide you with the knowledge to take your bondage practice to the next level, regardless of if you are just beginning or already have experience. As well as safety, technique and some tricks, we’ll explore options for improvisation. You will gain skills which – combined with your own imagination – will open up new, creative possibilities for everybody. The scope and depth will be adapted to the needs and speed of the participants, and people without bondage experience are welcome. Diversity of all kinds is not only welcome in this workshop, but a fundamental part of it, and we strive to collectively hold a safer space. There is a limited amount of rope to lend, so please:

  • Bring/buy your own rope
  • Bring comfortable clothes
  • Bring something to drink
  • Bring something to practice on (e.g. pillow, blanket, yoga mat) if you have it.
