Essential Kinbaku: The core elements of Japanese rope bondage.

Japanese rope bondage (Kinbaku or Shibari) has become very popular in the last few years and its popularity keeps growing. However, it can be a little intimidating to start because of how intricate and involved most ties are.

This workshop will help you create beautiful and hot rope experiences immediately, without having to memorize complex ties. We will focus on creating intimacy between tying partners and the importance of enjoying the tying process, and not just focusing on reaching the end product.

If you’ve already been practicing Kinbaku with a focus on learning specific ties, this class will introduce you to a whole new approach of improvised tying.

The techniques taught in this workshop will greatly help you as you continue to learn more about Japanese rope bondage.

These techniques include:
Rope bottoming skills
Understanding and achieving flow
Rope handling
Tying with focus on your play partner
Ichinawa (AKA ippon nawa) translates to “one rope”. It is a technique that focuses on the tying instead of the end result of a particular tie.

The workshop will also cover the Futomomo Shibari as an application of these techniques.

Pre-requisites
To get the most out of this class, a person who will be tying needs to be familiar with the following techniques:
Single-column tie
Joining 2 ropes
Half hitch
Munter hitch
Creating a hojo-cuff

These techniques will be quickly demonstrated during the class, but there will not be a dedicated time to practice them.

What to bring
3-5 pieces of 25’-30’ 5-6mm natural fibre rope.
1-2 pieces of 10’-15’ 5-6mm natural fibre rope (optional).
A yoga mat or something else soft to tie on. The floor is hard and might be uncomfortable for tying.
A small blanket for warmth.

All sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations welcome and celebrated.
