Event Details

Join us to find your path in learning Japanese-inspired rope bondage (shibari/kinbaku).

This class is designed for beginners with basic prior rope knowledge wishing to learn how to play and enjoy rope sessions that only require single/double column ties and tension/counter tension.

We will offer tools and new techniques to encourage, as well as inspire your ongoing practice.

You can join this class alone or with your partner (everybody needs to buy a ticket).

Caritia will offer creative exercises and playful ways to share, find separate & shared intentions, as well as how the small gestures can have the biggest influence on how you choose to tie with another. Long with a few added extra techniques.

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.
