with Luna from Sensual Artistry.
Got a curious itch about bondage? Seen pictures around the place of beautiful ropework and fantasising about trying it out yourself? Perhaps you see it and judge it, you’re triggered by it and you want to face your fears? Or maybe you already have been exploring and you want to learn more perspectives and meet some other rope-curious people to connect with…
Shibari is an ancient Japanese martial arts technique which has had a modern revival and grown in popularity and styles over the past decade. You can now find rope jams and workshops all over the world as people delve into their curiosity around BDSM in an artform that combines mindfulness, meditation and artistry to have an intimate bonding experience between people, or even alone.
In this workshop series we will have various focuses for each class, so you can attend all the different workshops and learn new things, but it is not required to have attended the earlier workshops to go to the next one.
All workshops will be based on 1 rope practices for beginner-intermediate level without any suspension and start with some basic ties and techniques plus a foundation on consent, safety and communication, plus some mindfulness and tantra work for getting deeply connected with your rope partner. There will be a 'free tie' time at the end of the workshop to experiment with what you have learned, and more advanced students can practice what they want.
It is ok to come alone or with your own partner.
Cacao is given on entry to help open the heartspace.
Contemporary, connecting, contact rope.
The focus is on a more contemporary rope style and activities involving contact improvisation and a more open and flowing style of rope play, not too focused on technique but more on the interaction with your rope partner and the sensations and moods.
In this class we focus on beautiful decorative knotwork, body harnesses that can be worn for fashion or pleasure and how to work with the body of your model to create aesthetic ropework.
Empowered Submission and Devotional Domination
Here we will focus on the D/S relationship and how to communicate your desires and be a caring, loving and devotional dominant partner in a rope scene or in any play. Also working to empower the rope bottom in continuous communication and boundaries, then going into some fun techniques for playing with this dynamic in your rope scenes.
Sensual journey through pleasure and pain
Here we will be spending most of the workshop taking turns to create a blissful, creative and euphoric experience for your rope partner. Working with some basic techniques plus some fun extra tools, we create a journey for each other with the rope within their chosen pleasure and pain limits.

All 4 workshops for only 1mil
Please bring a waterbottle, sarong and wear comfortable clothes, soft fabrics are ideal as any jeans, buttons etc can cause extra unwanted pain and thick fabrics block the sensations. Underwear is fine!
Shower before class and don't wear any intense scents, a small amount of natural deodorant is enough. When we are being tied our senses are heightened and intense perfumes and body odour can ruin the experience. If you sweat a lot, please bring a small towel as being in the rope flow tends to make people sweat a lot!
