We’re open again!
Welcome to the first full-time shibari studio in the UK!
Anatomie is a sex-positive and kink-positive London venue.
Operating since 2015, it is also the UK’s first full-time shibari space – offering a consent-focused venue for learning and practicing shibari – or Japanese Rope Bondage.
Anatomie is home to a thriving network of shibari enthusiasts. Join us to discover what rope is all about!
We run open practice and social sessions every Tuesday evening. Every Thursday we also host beginners evenings which include a short taster class. The session is informal, relaxed and social. There is no need to book, and you can join solo or with a partner or friend.
The studio is available at discounted rates for events dedicated to uplifting under-represented groups in London (such as, but not limited to, Black, POC, queer communities). If this applies to you, please get in touch!
We offer a welcoming, inclusive and relaxed atmosphere with dedicated and passionate instructors. Whether you are solo, on a budget, have no experience or are simply curious, we have a range of events and classes to suit you.
We also offer a range of workshops for those who wish to progress onto more advanced techniques. Join our foundation courses (there is a total of 4) and progress from the very basics to dynamic suspensions and transitions.
Weekly Rope Jams
Every Tuesday and Thursday the studio is open for general rope practice and socialising between 7pm and 11pm. If you are completely new to the studio, join us on a Thursday Rope Jam as we run an induction and a taster beginner class from 7:30-9pm. We offer a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere as well as free tea and coffee.
Every first Wednesday of the month we run a life drawing evening called ‘Drawn to Rope’, in collaboration with our artist friend InkyLayla. The event pre-dates Anatomie as we’ve been running it since 2014 in various London venues before finding our permanent home. For this reason this event is a staple of the studio.
We are located in a railway arch.
