      Instructors:

      TrainOnTheWater (he/him)

      Train has been practicing shibari on and off for the past 5 years and has been a part of the local rope community for the past year and a half. Mostly a top when it comes to rope, he has enjoyed many different styles of shibari from floor play to suspension, minimal to maximal, and is currently focused on improvised floor play and simplifying his ties. He loves teaching and has a passion for destigmatizing kink and making shibari and all forms of kink accessible and approachable for anyone interested. Outside of shibari, he enjoys photography, cooking, and spoiling his dog!

      BoatOnTheTracks (she/her)

      Boat is a neurodivergent queer kinkster. She has been bottoming with, and learning alongside Train in shibari for about 5 years, with a special focus on it in the past year and a half. She loves the communication and trust that rope demands between its users. She also really digs that rope bottoming forces her to practice grounding and letting go of control, two things that will probably be a lifelong practice.

      Despite being introverted, she is very happy to be back in community spaces after lock down. Once you get to know her, she becomes very silly and talkative. She is constantly in awe of how kink communities embrace learning, creativity, and diversity.

      Boat is currently geeking out on the work of Lady Speech Sankofa, and The Dominance Playbook, by Anton Fulmen. She cares deeply about embracing differences and making conversations about sex, play, beliefs, and our varied internal operating systems more open. She loves hiking, drawing, rollerblading, collaging, and hearing what other folks are passionate about. And of course, her pets. And eating Train’s delicious pizzas.

          Brad/MrNeve (he/him)

          Brad (FetLife: MrNeve) is a rope addict, a giggling sadist, and a passionate educator. He began his kink journey in the Nashville, TN area over 10 years ago, where he first found a love for impact play, D/s dynamics, and the curiosity to always try something new. He firmly believes rope is for everybody (and every body). Consent, negotiation, and safer play for newcomers are all topics that he loves. When he isn't tying, you'll find him hiking, cooking, or spending time with his dogs Zero and Nala.

          Senna (she/her)

          Senna is an avid self suspender, rope switch, and impact switch. A 21 year veteran of the kink community, Senna believes you can not teach unless you continue to learn. She is and will continue to be a student as well as an educator with a passion for helping beginners. Senna puts a heavy focus on radical honesty, open communication, and consent. In real life, she is an author, table top player, board gamer, and hiker. She talks far too much about Star Wars and Tolkien.

                        GoodFoxy

                        GoodFoxy (she/they) has been in love with shibari for close to three years. She was thankfully introduced to it as a bottom by a friend and tied and learned with that friend for some time before stepping into the rope community via Studio Friction. After taking curriculum classes with the intention of bottoming, GoodFoxy soon found a desire to learn to tie quickly becoming clear. And thus began her journey to learn to tie, to find herself as both a bottom and a top, and to joyfully fall deeper in love with shibari.

                        GoodFoxy values human connection and complexity, relationship, equity, education, aesthetics, sensory experience, challenge, novelty, and passion (to start ). They identify as a cis, queer/bi, poly, kinky, femme, rope switch who is also a single mom, burlesque dancer, fitness instructor, and psychologist.

                                  Tight Lines: A kink life drawing event

                                  COST: Sliding scale $10/$15/$20

                                  Please bring your favorite drawing materials; we will be drawing the human form in an array of kinky activities. Obviously, there will be a strong focus on rope, and we will likely start there, but eventually, there will be a range of kinks represented. We will create a relaxed atmosphere to see and draw fun, sexy things. 

                                  If you are new to rope or kink, this will be a great low-pressure atmosphere to spend some time watching and drawing some beautiful kink. Models will pose for varying times in various kinds of positions. 

                                  If you don't have them, we will provide some basic materials, but certainly, bring your favorite sketchbook/tablet/easel and mark-making supplies. 

                                  Switchtext isn’t an art instructor, but he does have an art degree and has spent a lot of time in life drawing classes. He is happy to offer input and suggestions on your work if you would like. 

                                  If you are interested in posing and tying for these drawing sessions, reach out to nate@studiofriction.com

                                      One of the many wonderful parts of the kink community is building relationships with others with shared interests. We love going to an event where we can openly talk about our love of rope, other kinky pursuits, and more. Adding a shared meal to the equation makes it even better!

                                      So we are bringing back our monthly potluck to set the mood for more casual conversations. We’ll have tables/chairs out to eat and good company abound! Plus our grill is available to use if anyone wants. Please bring something to share to this event! Typically we spend the first 2-3ish hours of the event socializing/eating and then move on to tying. Although fair game for both activities throughout. Come hang out.

                                          TNG At Studio Friction

                                          Bound Members: Free

                                          Wrapped & Tied Members: Sliding Scale: $10-20

                                          Non-Members: $15

                                          The Next Generation (TNG) Night is back at Studio Friction! A special event for the younger folx under 35. TNG is great for those new and experienced with rope alike. It’s a safe space to try out rope for the first time while also building community among the next generation. Skill sharing is encouraged from experienced riggers. And of course, non-rope activities are allowed too.

                                          Schedule:

                                          • From 7:30-8pm there will be casual instruction on a basic knot and safety.
                                          • Pending the availability of experienced riggers, there may be an opportunity for rope tastings throughout the night.
                                          • Arrive by 8pm to allow our volunteers time to socialize/play too!

                                          TNG is especially good for people new to Studio Friction as it’s one of our few regular monthly events that is open to non-members.  

                                          Bring your rope and/or curiosity and come hang out at Studio Friction's TNG Night!

Self suspension can be used to achieve many goals, whether that's challenging yourself, spinning upside down, or feeling beautiful and powerful in the air. In this class we'll explore ways to incorporate more movement, play, and experimentation into your self suspension.

                                              We'll cover fast and easy ties to get quickly off the ground and into the air to fast track those endorphins and thrill that we love. We'll also learn quick, yet supportive harnesses (such as gunslingers and gravity boots) for tying marionette-style suspensions that allow for maximum movement.

                                              Beyond the ties themselves, we will also discuss the intricacies and safety concerns around dynamic self-suspensions, including spotting, and the pros and cons of tying more or less rope.

                                              Prerequisites and Equipment:

                                              • This is not an intro class and participants should have some suspension experience and basic up-line management skills.
                                              • While not required, participants may bring one non-tying "spotter" partner to observe and support them during the class.
                                              • Suspension gear (i.e. ring, rigging plate, carabiners, etc.)
                                              • Safety gear (such as shears or other cutting tool)
                                              • Enough rope for tying at least a chest harness, hip harness, and 1-2 additional single columns
                                              • 4-5 synthetic load lines are recommended

                                              About the Instructor:

                                              Marilyn (she/her)

                                              Marilyn first entered the Denver rope community in 2019. She first started self-tying as a way to maintain her rope skills after moving during the pandemic, but she quickly fell in love with the playful, energetic, and dynamic nature of it. She is happy to be back in Denver and loves how much the self-tying community has grown since she left!

                                              Marilyn identifies as a queer, polyamorous, kinky switch. She loves all things rope, whether that's tying others, tying herself, or letting others tie her sometimes too. She's passionate about relationship anarchy, arguing the semantics of language, and the value of building connections and community.

We will create a relaxed atmosphere to see and draw fun, sexy things. 

                                                    If you are new to rope or kink, this will be a great low-pressure atmosphere to spend some time watching and drawing some beautiful kink. Models will pose for varying times in various kinds of positions. 

                                                    If you don't have them, we will provide some basic materials, but certainly, bring your favorite sketchbook/tablet/easel and mark-making supplies.

                                                        On the second Saturday of each month, self tying and self suspending enthusiasts have an evening set aside for them! This is not a class on self suspension, rather a lab night for folx to practice and enjoy self tying together. Beginners are welcomed, but there will be no instructors on hand. Skill sharing among attendees is encouraged, but not required.

                                                        Every evening begins with a quick demo or tie along. Attendees are welcomed to participate or free to tie/suspend themselves. You are encouraged to bring a partner or friend as a spotter though this is not required. Group spotters will be available throughout the event.

                                                              The time has come for our annual members’ meeting. This meeting is an opportunity for us to come together to review the prior year’s achievements, collect member feedback, and elect new board members. Our meeting will be virtual, in order to make it as accessible as possible for all of our members. Please note that this meeting is for members of Studio Friction only. You can register for the meeting on our website (it is free of charge) to receive the zoom link.

                                                              To be eligible to vote in the board election, you must be a member in good standing and your membership must be active as of Wednesday September 15, 2022. This is to ensure the board has the time needed to set up the voting software. If you have any questions about your eligibility to vote, or the meeting in general, please reach out to office@studiofriction.com

                                                              Board Election Information

                                                              Since 2021, all current members in good standing are eligible to vote in the election. Each member will be emailed a voting link (to the email attached to their Studio Friction member account) on the day of the Annual Meeting.  After the Annual Meeting, members will have one full week, until September 25 at noon to cast their vote. This is to ensure that folks are fully informed before voting and to give time to those who were unable to attend the Annual Meeting to vote as well. Once the voting has closed on September 25, we will announce the new board via a member email announcement. To be elected to the Board, a nominee must receive votes from at least 51% of the ballots cast.

                                                              Please also take part in our Annual Member Survey to give feedback and direction to the next board, and send any questions you may have to the incumbent board nominees via our Nominee Questions Portal. The survey and questions portal will close on September 11, 2022. All submissions are anonymous.

Obviously, there will be a strong focus on rope, and we will likely start there, but eventually, there will be a range of kinks represented. We will create a relaxed atmosphere to see and draw fun, sexy things. 

                                                              If you are new to rope or kink, this will be a great low-pressure atmosphere to spend some time watching and drawing some beautiful kink. Models will pose for varying times in various kinds of positions. 

                                                              If you don't have them, we will provide some basic materials, but certainly, bring your favorite sketchbook/tablet/easel and mark-making supplies. 

                                                              Switchtext isn’t an art instructor, but he does have an art degree and has spent a lot of time in life drawing classes. He is happy to offer input and suggestions on your work if you would like.

TNG is great for those new and experienced with rope alike. It’s a safe space to try out rope for the first time while also building community among the next generation. Skill sharing is encouraged from experienced riggers. And of course, non-rope activities are allowed too.

                                                                  Schedule:

                                                                  • Arrive by 8pm to allow our volunteers time to socialize/play too!

These patterns are known for being robust and solid ties that excel at safety and comfort. This class is an intermediate class that will move into a static suspension.

                                                                          All students will be expected to have suspension experience and riggers expected to have solid experience in basic up-line management. Participants should be able to tie a chest harness and a hip harness.  As always, everyone is welcome to participate up to their own comfort level or just observe the class.
