Event Details

Join us to take your very first steps in learning Japanese-inspired rope bondage within a closed group setting.

This weekend intensive course is designed for absolute beginners with no prior knowledge whatsoever and gives more structure and time to learn than our drop-in classes.

René de Sans will be your guide and teacher and will encourage you to develop your skills, ground yourself in the fundamentals of tying and being tied, build muscle memory, and find inspiration on your rope journey.

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 acknowledgment 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.
