Event Details

This workshop will give you a deeper knowledge of how hip and leg harnesses work: different options for constructing them, considering body shape and body positions, safe rope placements, and loading the harnesses in suspension.

We will work with options from minimalistic to overtied, and find good fits for any type of body. This workshop is especially suitable for bottoms who are fat, have injuries, or have other specific considerations around the waist, hip, and leg area. It is possible to self-tie in this workshop.

Please note that there are no suspension points in the space, so we will only be working on the harnesses outside of suspension. This workshop is not suitable for beginners.

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.
