For this past week, we’ve had the great pleasure to welcome world renown shibari artist Kinoko Hajime from Japan to our studio! Workshop tickets were released in September and sold out within 38 seconds, establishing a new record for us!
On the last day, participants created a gigantic web of ropes with Kinoko’s guidance and help – a trademark of his workshops and of his work as a rope artist.
Participants were photographed and video’d inside the ropes, looking like a freeze frame of suspended dolls. The scene was wonderful to behold and was the perfect finale to the intense 4 days of classes and performances.
