Thursday Night Virtual Rope 102 Class 

with Switchtext

About the class:

Futo Four Ways

The Futo or Futomomo is a way of binding and securing the folded leg. It can be a very rewarding tie in its compression and sometimes its pain. Many rope friends practice at home and enjoy the truely bound sensation of a futo. We will go over four progressively more complex futo patterns, and along the way learn some important foundational frictions and techniques.

We will cover:

  • random rope futo
  • futo with 360 turns and cinch
  • mufti with hunter frictions and cinch
  • hishi (which means diamond) futo

You will need:

3-4 lengths of aprox 27-30' rope, a partner is always nice, but will not be necessary for this class

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). Once registered you will receive the Zoom Meeting link where you can tie yourself or tie someone your social distancing with**!
