Event Details

Tying without patterns is a good way to learn about tension, frictions, and placement of rope. Freestyling, going back to basics, and breaking rules will help you understand the material you are working with. It will also free your mind for play. Unpredictability might help access deeper levels of connection.

In this workshop, we will go through different drills that will help your creativity and communication. We will look at, touch, and test the rope to understand cause and effect. We use single and double column ties, and frictions to create ties for everybody and every body.

You should take an active and attentive mind with you – tested and tried patterns are always safer than free flow, and this has to be taken into consideration. We will discuss safety concerns in the workshop.

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 describes 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 pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.
