Log in


Studio Friction is a rope-centered, sex-positive, non-normative, safe & welcoming 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 want to make a space to incubate the future of the art of kinbaku, play at the intersection of rope and aerial art and create community. We are intentionally working to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.


Studio Friction is a 501(c)(7) non-profit social club. All funds collected through membership dues and event entry go straight back to the studio. Our 2023-24 board of directors are Xrae, Willow, Knotty Nick, Anna, Kennedy, Kathryn and Snoh. Each board member brings something special to the table from non-profit management experiences, business experience, rope experiences, diversity, and more.


Studio Friction was founded by three people in the Denver community: Mary, Diana, and Nate. Between them, they had plenty of experience in rope, business, and the local community. They are performers, event attendees and organizers, teachers, business starters and owners, and creatives. We are forever grateful and indebted to their leadership and vision in starting this world class rope space.
