Event Details

Welcome. This is the entry to a whole new world for you. The world of Shibari, Kinbaku, or as we call it Japanese-inspired rope bondage. You might have been fantasizing about learning rope for quite a while. Or you’ve seen amazing photos, videos, or performances. You might wonder what it feels like to tie or to get tied. Either way, this is your call to step into this new space and try it out.

René de Sans will guide you gently through your first steps and the beginnings to this fascinating craft. Together with other interested people all over the world, you will not only dive into some of the basic techniques but also spend a lot of time learning about yourself and your body and how to connect to it and other people via rope. We will talk about connection and communication, about touch and breath, about anatomy, and safety for the body and the mind.

You can come to this workshop series alone and tie yourself (or objects in your home) or you can join with a partner. We always encourage to switch so everybody has the opportunity to tie or get tied and experience how that feels. All you need is 1-2 ropes. Let’s do it!
