Event Details

This class takes a deep dive into the minute details of what makes good tension, clean placement, even lines, and smooth, effortless rope movement.

These absolutely fundamental (and universally applicable) micro-techniques are difficult to pin down but magic once implemented, and make the difference between good rope and excellent tying. We will look at how to use hands more effectively, going into details like which fingers hold tension when, how to flip or angle rope to prevent twists, which angles to follow when throwing rope to clear it, how to multi-task so that one hand can accomplish two (or three) tasks simultaneously.

We will break down how the person tying can maneuver their hands and body to tie even cuffs (thigh, ankle) that stay in place, or how to tweak those cuffs better suit the needs of a tie. We will also look at techniques to prevent finger and hand injuries for those who tie. These techniques are useful to anyone who ties, no matter their style, and all skill levels will find these techniques useful and productive.

Beginners are especially invited to attend as it is easier to build good habits from the beginning. Solo attendance is also encouraged, and techniques will be taught in such a way that they can be practiced on oneself.

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 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.
