Upcoming Events


Studio Friction is a rope & aerial centered, non-normative, welcoming, polished and modern environment for learning, exploration, practice, play, and performance. We strive create to a place of safety, trust, freedom, and connection where you can open new awareness, develop mastery, and engage the body, mind, and emotions. Come co-create the future of rope artistry, craft, and play with us.

We have a large, and bold vision for Studio Friction... we see this as the beginning of something new in the Denver community - a place to incubate the future of the art of Kinbaku, play at the intersection of rope and aerial art and create community. We are consciously creating a culture of inclusion and openness.

Who are we?

Studio Friction is a 501(c)7 nonprofit social club. All funds collected through membership dues and event entry go straight back into the studio. Our board of directors are Mary, Nate, Tyger, Hannah, and Jonathon. Each person on the board brings something special to the table. From extensive design experience, multiple years of business experience, solid rope experience, and deep knowledge of kink communities throughout Colorado and beyond. 

Our programing committee will be holding open forums to listen to the wider community so we can create the events that we all want to participate in.


To help us out by volunteering to help check people in, set up events, work on our social media committee, help with maintenance and building things,  please reach out to:

It's a great way to meet people and support your community plus get  great volunteer benefits.
