Studio Friction's Rope Bondage Series:

Intermediate 1

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

Mondays 8:00-10:00pm. Jan 9, 16, 23, & 30.

Price per tying pair: Bound = $175, Tied = $200, Wrapped = $225


    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.


            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.

            Avid (they/them)

            Avid ties others, ties themself, and gets tied 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 of rope.
