    About the instructors:

    KessKahlo

    Kess (she/they) is a sadistic rope switch and queer social science nerd who has been active in the local community since 2014, and tying for about 6 years. She is passionate about accessible rope education and giving back to the community. Approaching her rope practice and classes from a place of authenticity, she strives to meet her students where they are at.

    Kess has been organizing rope education events, including Rope in the Rockies, in Denver for several years. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for Studio Friction, where she facilitates programming and consent education (among other things). You’ll also see her volunteering at the Denver Sanctuary’s Gateway event, helping to make new community members feel welcome as they begin their kink journeys.

    Mx_Mia_More

    Mia More (she/they) is a gender-bending rope switch, and self-suspender who experiences BDSM as a diverse tool for self-exploration and creative expression. For the past six years, they have been publicly involved in Kink/BDSM as a community member, and in more recent years as an educator and event producer. As an educator, Mia encourages participation and interactive demonstrations so students can build skills that are imbued with their own personal imagination and authentic personality. Much like her gender expression and identity, they consider their rope style as chaotic. Their journey in rope started as a bottom. They decided to take a break from playing with others but still loved the community and the feeling of being in rope so they started to self tie/suspend. More recently they have been topping others both in and out of rope but still enjoy the fun and challenges that come along with bottoming. They have taught at the Easter conference in Berlin, Studio Friction, Denver Rope Bite, and Unabashed Queer Kink Con events.

        3RD TUESDAY SKILLSHARE AND LAB

        COST: Pay what you can ($5/$10/$15). 

        Free for BOUND members.

        Join us every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7:45-10 pm for a skillshare and open lab. This event is open to all, regardless of skill/experience level or how you identify (tops, bottoms, switches, self suspenders, etc. - everyone is welcome!).

        This event is the happy medium between a class and an open lab. Is there a tricky transition sequence you’re trying to figure out? Do you have a new arms-free chest harness you want to share with the community? Are you curious about rope bondage, and just want to observe and see if it might be for you? Are you a self-suspender and need a spotter as you work through a new pose? You have found the right event.

        Check-in is from 7:45-8:00, and we will have the white board out for folks to share what they want to teach or learn. Once everyone has had a chance to make requests/offers of instruction, we will split up to work on whatever your hearts desire. The beauty of this event is that you get to decide exactly what you want to learn, and the Studio Friction community will help you make it happen.

        Just want to come practice in a laid back education/practice-focused environment? This event is for you too.

        Make sure to bring some rope and a tying partner if you want to tie or be tied by another person. Self-suspenders and observers are welcome to come solo.

        Please note that this event is strictly no play (education and practice only). Contact us with any questions.

          THIRD FRIDAY ROPE SOCIAL

          (Most) Third Fridays we will be hosting a casual social and play evening for our community. Here is your chance to come hang / dine / play with your friends, and meet new friends.

          Bring food to share if you’d like - but keep it good (bringing food just for yourself is fine too). SF will usually provide a main dish or something for the grill - we always have veggie burgers for our friends who prefer them. Shared dishes can be homemade or store-bought. We aren't saying you need to bring a crepe griddle and make fresh crepes with chocolate and berries for everyone, but someone once did... just sayin. We may have a good food fetish around SF.

          The grill will be hot and ready (just like your rope community), if you have something you would like to throw on it.

          Bring your board or other games to play in the front room if you like. This might be a fun way to get to know people if you are new.

          After the eating and chats have subsided, there will be relaxed play / scene time (non-rope scenes welcome and encouraged - Studio Friction is a sex positive space). Music will be chill, garage door may or may not be open for fresh breezes depending on the weather.

          You get the picture, we hope you join us.

          About our instructors:

          Matt/Shosty9 (he/him)

          Matt has been a part of the Denver rope community since 2018. Having an engineering mind he cares less about the how of rope and more about the why. Breaking patterns down into their core components and understanding their interaction has guided his understanding. This also informs how he teaches, ensuring students gain a functional understanding rather than copying by rote. In addition to interests in rope and rope education, Matt's interests include primal play, knives, and breath play.

          athena/ghost_sonata (she/her)

          Since discovering kink eight years ago, athena has rounded out her vanilla life by exploring power exchange, giggly masochism, and plenty of time in rope. A highly sensitive rope slut with an insatiable appetite for novelty, she has had the pleasure of discovering the many different modalities rope has to offer with trusted and intimate partners. 

          A consent enthusiast, relational junkie, and liberal feminist killjoy, athena has shared her passion with others by teaching about rope, power dynamics, sexuality, feminism, kink, and personal transformation in cities across the United States.

              Bring your favorite drawing materials, we will be drawing the human form in an array of kinky activities.

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. 

              We will provide some basic materials if you don’t have them, but certainly bring your favorite sketch book / 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

                    TNG Night is back at Studio Friction! 

                    We want to offer a chance to try out rope in a safe space for people who may be new or curious about it. Along with the many available hardpoints and floor spaces in the studio, there will be suspension tastings with experienced riggers, which is a great opportunity to see how it feels. Of course, non-rope activities are also allowed!

                    This event is restricted to kinksters 35 years of age or younger. Older attendees in good standing are allowed to attend as an accompanied guest with their TNG-aged partner. Folx over 35 years of age will be required to arrive and leave with their TNG partner.

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