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 to create 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 we are

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. The studio is ran by a community elected board of directors and several volunteer committees.  Each person brings something special to the table. From extensive non-profit management experience, multiple years of business experience, solid rope experience, and deep knowledge of kink communities throughout Colorado and beyond. Click here to check out our current board members.


Volunteering is a great way to meet people and support the community. Plus, you can earn great volunteer benefits.

We are always in need of volunteers to check-in event registrants, set up events, work on our social media committee, or help with maintenance and building things. For more information, see the Volunteer tab or reach out to:

Companies can also donate services to us. QuestionPro's survey software is available to us via donation and plays a major role in helping us keep in touch with our community.
