Event Details

What is rope all about? Is it the feeling of being captured or the touch of rope on skin? Is it aesthetics and beauty? Or emotion and connection, a way to create a bubble? Is tying about nerding out on ties and the rope we make them with?

Come to this workshop to find out what rope is for YOU. We will discuss communication and safety, try out some basic techniques, and most important of all, have lots of fun with rope!

Addie teaches you techniques like the single-column tie, double-column tie, and a basic pattern you can use for many different body parts. You will learn how to use the rope and rope tension to connect and communicate intention efficiently. We will also look at the basics of body mechanics, safety, and negotiation of rope sessions.

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid,

Friends describe people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgment to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender-straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all proactively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
