Teaching &Selling Rope

Teaching Rope

We teach Japanese-inspired rope, also called shibari or kinbaku. We adhere to no specific style.

We love to teach fundamental principles that are based on grounded techniques, adaptive patterns, understanding of bodies, anatomy, and health & safety. Our main interest in teaching and researching lies in finding the intentions for tying, in finding flow, connection, and a common language for the people practicing rope together.

We are equally interested in floor work as well as suspension work.

Caritia (no pronouns)

My journey into Japanese-inspired rope (shibari/kinbaku) began over 10 years ago, over that time I have learned from a broad range of European and Japan-based teachers. My tying style is centered around the ritual of floorwork, movement, and playful present attention to the person I am tying. Minimalist ties for maximum effect with some partial suspension play sprinkled in is what I aspire to create. For me – moving and being moved in every sense (of the word) are my reasons to tie or be tied.

When teaching I aim to offer access to different learning styles, there is no one size fits all when it comes to rope (or anything else). I thrive on serious fun and intentional boundary-communicated space.

Ceci Ferox (they/them)

Ceci teaches Japanese rope bondage from top, bottom, and switch perspectives. Their tying is influenced by traditional Japanese styles as well as contemporary western organic and artistic tying. They like to focus on elements of technique and communication rather than patterns and sequences. Their tying is created in the moment, inspired by each situation and partner.

“Rope for me is a medium for meditation, empowerment, intimacy, and sexy times. It is also about continuous learning and wonder.”

When teaching and organizing events, they draw on their expertise as a community educator to bring people together.

“My goal is to create safer spaces for people to communicate through rope.”

René de Sans (she/her)

René came into contact with Japanese rope bondage in 2013 while modeling for private lessons where she developed her first tying skills by absorbing the knowledge while being tied and later on via self-tying. She now enjoys all sides of the rope.

While she does not follow a certain technical school of tying, she is constantly searching for a deeper understanding of how to move somebody physically and emotionally through the use of ropes. Her style of tying is a reflection of who shie is in relation the the person she ties.

Renés teaching approach is strongly influenced by her belief that in order to understand how to tie, one should not forget the person that one ties with.

Our class system tries to offer you possibilities to choose your own way of learning all of these fundamental principles.

We start with our ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS class which we run every Monday.

After you have learned the absolute basics, we offer open beginner trainings with lots of different topics every other Wednesday. We will cycle through lots of topics like tension, patterns, communication, health & safety, psychology, etc. every week.

We also offer a ROPE HANGOUT once a month. The rope hangout is an open space to meet new people, practice and tie, and get some help from others and/or one of our teachers. This is your communal practice space, designed mostly for beginners but also open to other people wishing to practice. After the rope hangout, we extend the space into a rope jam which allows time to practice and tie without a dedicated teaching space.

We regularly offer weekend classes that build upon these topics and go more into depth.

You can also always take private lessons with our teachers if you wish to get an intensive study session tailored to you. We also offer rope jams as an open space to practice, tie and get to know other people every other week.

And: We invite international guest teachers on a regular basis for intensive weekend workshops so you can extend your knowledge and try out different styles of tying.

Selling Rope

We sell jute rope from two different manufacturers. Our organic jute rope comes from a manufacturer in Spain and our jute rope comes from Japan. Both of them are fully suitable for Japanese-inspired rope bondage and are treated for comfortable and immediate usage.

Jute is a natural fiber that is very light and allows fluid motions, but it needs some care for long-lasting usage.
