Event Details

This advanced class is focused on how to suspend larger bodies more safely. We will discuss the variety of possibilities that can be taken and how to handle larger bodies in the air while doing dynamic transitions. This class is not about being a strong rigger, nor about a model enduring undesirable painful ties or endlessly struggling in air time.

This class is about taking a lab approach (to what can be a complex topic) and finding practical solutions and tips for more enjoyable and less complicated ways to enjoy suspensions and transitions. We will use one exercise as an example to explore several points of discussion, plus there will be model feedback/insight. This class potentially great for new suspenders, as well as helpful in general for anyone interested in suspensions.

Model & assistant: tba



Format: workshop & demonstration

Minimum Knowledge Level: intermediate (Participants rigging should know basic knots and frictions, should know how to lock safely upper lines, and how to tie basic pattern ties on their models that are sustainable and safer.

What to Bring:  if you wish to participate you need ropes, safety gear and a hard point

Solo or Partnered: both, depending on whether you wish to tie along
