So you want to tie people up but you don't know where to start?

This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to start tying people up. In addition to technical skills, we'll focus on the "soft" skills required to put together a successful bondage scene.

We'll begin by talking about why we do what we do. There are many different styles of bondage - we'll help you figure out what you're looking for, and how to make it happen.

Next, we'll move on to a few basic rope techniques. Our intention is not to teach you a large number of knots, but rather to give you a set of simple building blocks that you can use to construct whatever position you have in mind.

Once you've mastered some basic skills, we'll talk about what to do with them. We'll teach several different bondage positions and discuss how to choose a position that's appropriate for your particular play style. We'll also spend some time talking about the psychology of bondage and the steps involved in putting together a fun and successful scene.

Much of our time will be spent on practicing the techniques and positions that we're covering. We'll have plenty of assistant instructors on hand to help you learn the material and to answer questions as they come up. In addition, we'll provide you with a handout that you can refer to when you're practicing at home.

We'll provide everything you need for the class, including practice rope. If you'd rather bring your own rope, we recommend one to four 15' lengths.

If you're able to bring a practice partner, please do so. If not, we'll do our best to pair you up with someone. Rope Bottoms: this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

No prior knowledge of bondage or knots is assumed for this class - it's perfectly appropriate for beginners. This class also works well if you've already done some bondage and want to add to your technique.
