Event Details


Tying someone with ropes is a vulnerable thing, marked by deep and mutual responsibility and trust. This class offers supportive space to acknowledge this vulnerability and explore tools and exercises to boost confidence for any anxious riggers or people new to tying.

It’s not always easy to balance technique with staying connected to your partner. How can you ground yourself to help you both relax and trust? What to do when you don’t know what to do? What are some tips and tools for communicating confidently with your body when you’re starting our with your rope skills?

The session will be a mix of discussions with practical exercises, aiming to build confidence while respecting the vulnerability of tying.

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.
