Cost/Tying Pair: Basic Price* - $125 | WRAPPED Price** - $105 | TIED/BOUND Price - $95
Instructor: SwitchText and Smitten
When: Wednesday December 4, 11, 18 7-9PM
Description: So now you know the two rope gote, lets add another rope and learn new frictions and different ties. In this class you'll learn so practical ties to work on rope flow, as well as futo (or fat leg) ties, and of course the third rope to the gote!
Prerequisites: Didn't make it to the first course? No worries, you'll have a few weeks to brush up your two rope gote (tons of online videos to do this or come to an open lab and ask someone for help!). So prerequisites are knowledge of the two rope gote and it's frictions, and a non-collapsible single column!
Nate is the creative director and a co-founder of Studio Friction. He has an intense interest in craft of rope and is more interested in understanding the details and the sensations of rope bondage than mastering someone’s specific pattern. He’s been tying for 10 years, and is a wealth of knowledge around this craft, but he still revels in the fact that there is still so much more to learn!
Dani/Smitten (She / Her / Hers):
Dani is one year into kink 4 months into rope and now learning to tie.
You would likely find her in attendance at a wide variety of community events. She is easily identified…just follow the hysterical laughter. Dani is thrilled to participate in cultivating a fun and inviting atmosphere for rope education within the kink community.
