Thursday Night Virtual Rope 102 Class 

with Switchtext

About the class:

Single Column Subtleties 

Once you have the basic pattern / knot to create a single column tie, . there are a host of subtle details and tricks to making them work the way you want them to. A solid and well understood single column is the foundation for most harnesses in eastern rope bondage, and getting the particulars right in your foundation makes all the difference in your larger structure.

We will cover:

  • Pros and cons of various single column ties
  • Hand position for quick tying
  • How and why to make room in your single column
  • Pull direction and intentional deformation
  • Inline cuff / hojo cuff details

We will conclude with an wide open question and answer time. Bring your questions about rope, kink, consent, sex positive community, the rope community, Studio Friction, or anything in the realm or related realms. There are no bad questions!

About our presenter:

Nate / Switchtext

He / Him / His
Nate is a designer, and a co-founder and creative director of Studio Friction. He has an intense interest in craft. He is more interested in sensations and understanding the elements of rope bondage than mastering someone’s specific pattern. He enjoys paying attention to the details that he wishes someone had taught him from the get go. He’s been tying for 14 years, and has learned a lot, and he enjoys knowing that he has so much more to learn.


With the studio partially open and everyone practicing good social distancing, Studio Friction is still running some online classes for folks to be safer, social, and learn some rope! Pay on a sliding scale for the Thursday night classes ($5 - $10 - $20).
