Rope Intensive : Up the Wall

with Smitten_, maxyisfast, and switchtext

You may have noticed that studio Friction has a number of wall anchors throughout the space, 276 of them to be exact. These wall points are a fun way to add variety to tying scenes. Smitten_, Maxyisfast, and Switchtext are going to teach us how to tie into them! This class will include suspension and the moving your bottom from a hard point to the wall. Attendees will be expected to have suspension experience and riggers are expected to have experience in up line management. Participants should come prepared to tie an arms-free suspendible chest harness and a suspendible hip harness. As always, everyone is welcome to participate up to their own comfort level or just observe the class. 

The class will be limited to 6 tying pairs and 4 auditors and pricing is per person.

Please have at least 10 25' to 30' ropes, and 8 carabiners



Smitten has completed 5 levels of curriculum at Studio Friction and has been tying and teaching curriculum courses with Switchtext for the last year and a half. She also attends community classes and rope cons whenever possible. Smitten_ loves teaching and introducing new folks to rope and embraces rope for it’s unique connective qualities and unlimited creativity. 




Switchtext is a designer and a co-founder and creative director of Studio Friction. He is more interested in sensations and understanding the elements of rope bondage than mastering someone’s specific pattern. Switchtext has been tying for 14 years. He has learned so much in that time and enjoys knowing he has so much more to learn.
