Club Sapphire continues to graciously host workshops, as well as the Seattle Library branches. The Seattle Rope Studio continues to be an option for more intimate workshops in Pioneer Square. And now, we are very pleased to announce that we have added a Ballard location to to mix. Ren Fitness has kindly consented to host workshops. We are grateful to be able to integrate into our community.

We are also working to expand the amount and caliber of Consent Education being provided. We are starting here in Seattle and plan to move out from here.
