Event Details


Learn multiple ways to tie the hair! Controlling the hair means controlling the head which is a powerful experience for the recipient.

This class will cover a variety of methods for hair of different lengths, and textures. Whether you want to restrict the head, achieve some sensual pulling, or even support the head in a suspension, this is the class for you!

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, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, agender.

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 acknowledgement 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.

If you cannot afford the ticket price (even the solidarity price), please send us a message. We will find a way.



Tensegrity (they/he)

Tensegrity is an international genderqueer and neurodivergent educator and performer based in Denver,CO. They have been obsessing over rope since 2018 and started teaching in 2020. He puts on very dense classes packed to the brim with information and prides himself on making each class valuable to every skill level in the room. They are passionate about how the rope community can expand by both considering parallel outside knowledge bases and by challenging the status quo especially in the ways that are most uncomfortable. His super power in teaching is leveraging an advanced attention to detail to break down even complex topics into manageable bites. Oh, and he'll do it loudly.
