Studio Friction's Rope Bondage Series

Intermediate course 1

So you know your 3 rope gote, some leg ties, and a few single columns... Time to start thinking about flying!

COST per Tying Pair: WRAPPED Members - $225 | Tied Members - $200 | Bound Members - $175

Instructors: Avid and Switchtext

When: Mondays 8-10pm

Starting Nov 7th, Nov 14th, Nov 28th, Dec 5th

(note the skipped week on Nov 21st)


This course builds on the first 2 beginner courses and is the first in the intermediate level. During these four weeks, we will refine the structure and tension of our chest harnesses for suspension, gain an understanding of load line mechanics and safety, tie a mermaid harness that can be suspended, learn about directional suspensions including side, face-up, and face down, and ultimately tie a static suspension.


    Working knowledge of the three rope gote (TK), basic negotiation skills, 6-10 - 30' lengths of rope, 3-5 load rated carabiners, or a suspension ring.

    About our instructors:

    Avid (they/them)

    Avid ties others, ties themself, and gets ties by others.  They've been learning rope since 2015 and have been involved in the public community since 2018.  A passionate educator by trade, Avid is excited to facilitate experiences and education for folx who are newer to the wide world or rope.

    Switchtext (he/him)

    Switchtext is a designer, 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.
