A beginning bondage workshop with Seattle Shibari.

Come learn to make your rope play hotter, deeper, and more intimate in a fun, playful, supportive class.

Fancy ties are cool, but for many people, the real attraction of doing rope is the powerful feelings of intimacy, power, and surrender it evokes. In this three-hour class, we’ll explore safe, beautiful, and effective ways to move away from just putting knots on your partner, and build skill and intuition for ‘tying the spirit.’ Drawing especially on the traditional and beautiful ties found in the Japanese art of Shibari/Kinbaku, and core physical partner skills found in martial arts and dance, we’ll explore exercises for building intimacy with rope. We’ll also learn basic knots and ties needed to make your rope look and feel sexy on your partner, and of course, examine safety issues as well.

Tops: This is a great class for learning those precise tying and key ‘soft skills’ for making a rope scene hot. Bottoms: This is a great class for learning how to mesh and connect with your partner in rope! Expect to spend the majority of the class getting plenty of hands on practice in a friendly, non-competitive environment.
There is no prerequisite for this course, and it is definitely appropriate for all genders, sexual orientations, and body types.

Equipment & Dress: Comfortable clothing that is easy to move in and snug fitting. Rope tops will need to bring:
Yoga mat
(3-4) 8 meter or 30’ ropes, 5-6mm in diameter. Hemp or Jute is recommended. It’s also helpful to have some shorter lengths of rope in your kit. Short on rope? We’ll have a bit extra on hand to loan out to students.

To ensure personal attention to each participant, class size will be limited to 10 duos. Due to the small class size, early registration is highly recommended.

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

No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
Open to all 18+
