Join Max for a special two-day Bondage Intensive February 12-13.

This event provides 11 hours of focused bondage instruction, from the basics through suspension bondage.

About half of the Intensive is hands-on, so you'll have plenty of time to apply what you learn in a safe, friendly environment. The limited class size ensures plenty of one-on-one instruction and fosters an intimate, cooperative environment. As always, the emphasis is on learning, having fun and building confidence.

The workshop will be held at Studio 120 in south Seattle. A catered, hot lunch will be included, along with morning and afternoon snacks, handouts, and a formal Certificate of Completion.

Attendees also receive a $5 coupon for Sunday's Bondage party at the Wet Spot and a waiver of the Wet Spot's normal membership requirement.

If you have a practice partner, register them too. If you don't, that's OK - we'll form small groups and everyone will get a chance to practice.

The fee for all this is only $150 per person.  Couples and groups registering together pay only $135 per person - a 10% discount.

Class size is limited, so early registration is strongly encouraged. Details on how to register are in the "Registration and Fees" section, below.

Note: Max will not be doing stand-alone suspension workshops in the future. If you want to learn suspension bondage, now's the time.
