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!

Sundays 3:30-5:30pm. June 23, 30, July 14 & 21.

(Please note July 7 is skipped)

Price per tying pair: Bound = $100, Tied = $125, Wrapped = $150


    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, 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.


            Kathryn/shorty_kat (she/her)

            Kathryn has been a member of the Denver rope community since 2021. Initially captivated by Shibari’s blend of beauty and pain, she has fallen in love with the technical depth and artistry rope offers. She began her journey as a bottom, with a fondness for Futomomo inversions. In 2022, Kathryn decided to delve deeper into Shibari by learning to tie. Since then, she has dedicated herself to honing her skills as a rigger through meticulous attention to detail. Kathryn has a love for flowy, sensual, sweet ties with a dash of meanness sprinkled on top for spice.

            Oso (he/him)

            Oso has been a part of the denver rope community since early 2022. Originally intrigued by the shapes he saw, Oso fell in love with the intimacy, challenge, risk, and connection associated with Shibari. Oso identifies as a switch but still has a strong passion for bottoming. He loves challenging ties with single point hangs, pain, and twisty torsions. Through rope and self expression, Oso believes that everyone has the opportunity to create something beautiful and cultivate community growth.
