We are super excited to officially announce the return of Eris and Maya to the studio for a full weekend workshop at the end of February.
Since their last workshop in London (October 2016), we have received fantastic feedback from both bottoms and riggers about their class, and we have received numerous requests (both from inside and outside the UK!) to bring them back to the studio.
You asked, we listened!
About Miss Eris and Maya Homerton
If you remember, Miss Eris is a rope teacher and performer who has been immersed in the European rope scene since 2012. Her background as a model and rigger puts her in a unique place to understand both sides of tying. She has attended events and workshops by almost every well-known Japanese and European riggers such as Kazami Ranki, Hajime Kinoko, Akira Naka, Kanna, Ottonawa, Miumi-u, Gorgone, Yagami Ren.
Being one of the smallest riggers in the world, Miss Eris‘ entire rope experience consists of tying taller and heavier models than her. This has made her develop a style based on providing comfort (for both herself and her models) during dynamic and challenging transitions. She has also developed her own techniques to be able to move and suspend heavier and taller bodies than her almost effortlessly and creatively.
As for the incredible Maya Homerton, she is a very well known international rope model and performer with several years of experience tying with some of the very best riggers in the world (such as Kinoko, Gorgone, Pedro, Wykd Dave). Her diverse background experience as a model for photoshoots, rope lessons, video shoots, shibari performances and workshops establishes her as one of the top professional models in the European and international shibari scenes.
Maya is a dedicated yoga practitioner, which influences all aspects of her life. Her body awareness inside and outside of ropes means she helps her riggers develop a better understanding of body management and body mechanics.
About the workshop
The workshop will be ideal for those who want to perfect their suspension skills and learn a different TK (the Kazami TK) and hip harness (the Gorgone hip harness) from the ones you may have learned in the studio. This will also be extremely important for rope bottoms, as both Miss Eris and Maya have extensive experience in rope bottoming.
We cannot recommend learning from these two highly enough!
