Event Details


In this intensive workshop, René de Sans will teach you all you need to know about uplines. You will be shown how to lock off safely from the top and below, in carabiners, rings and bamboo. This is your first and arguably most important skill to move towards rope suspension work, no matter if you want them to be partial or full suspensions.

René will also teach you the most common ways to attach your uplines to harnesses.

Note: This workshop goes very well together with our From the Floor into the Air 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, 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.



René de Sans (she/her)

René is a visual artist with a focus on photography and film. She first came into contact with rope bondage in 2013 while modeling for private lessons and started to develop tying skills with self-tying. Eventually, she also started to tie others and finds herself comfortable on all sides of the ropes.
