Event Details

In this workshop, we want to make sure that practitioners know they don’t have to take themselves too seriously.

We are queering ropes, we deviate from the norm and have fun. We tie with everything but hands. This is mostly for the fun of it but also contains a very valuable lesson:

Understanding how certain techniques like frictions, knots, or patterns work without the use of your hands generally elevates the understanding of those techniques. A win-win situation.

Everyone should try.



Format: hands-on workshop/demonstration

Minimum Knowledge Level: single column tie

What to Bring: ropes safety gear

Solo or Partnered: all constellations welcome

Class recording: yes

This class will be recorded (only the facilitator, not the participants) and is available for ticket holders for 30 days after the event.
