This class is structured for participants to practice either solo or with a partner. This class is open to all levels of rope enthusiasts but was geared towards making it fun and accessible to newbies. Our hope is to create a space for exploration, building confidence with cool ties and having lots of practice time. This is a great way to start your journey with rope, and all of these can be learned by tying yourself.

We’ll go over the three essential ties we use all the time at our play parties at the dungeon and at home, and by the end of class you will gain the confidence to tie a partner safely and comfortably. Got a special request or want to show off a favorite tie? Attendees are encouraged to share their progress, but feel free to just be a voyeur.

We will cover:

Single and Double Column Tie and other basic knots

Rope Safety and Awareness

Rope Scene Negotiation

Rope Management and Flow

Intro to a Harness or Alternate Tie

We will be covering three basic ties at this first level, that you will be able to practice by yourself. Single and double-column ties to start with, and depending on skill level and how quickly we progress, we’ll be able to explore another tie or harness. We expect to have a range of skill levels present, many beginners, and there will be easy to follow instruction, demos and lots of practice time.

All attendees must be present in ZOOM by 3:00pm PST
