Private tuition slots and more virtual live classes!

After a very successful first beginners class last Thursday, we are excited to bring you further live classes! We have added private tuition slots with either Fred or Anna over the next 3 weeks, and we have added another Thursday beginners session open for complete novices and the curious.

Additionally we have added two more specialist classes we believe are suitable for solo persons and pairs! All classes have budget tickets available as well as regular tickets so you can pay within your budget.

To check out what’s on offer and book yourself a slot, visit out new livestream page here.

See you soon!

Lockdown: Update on studio activities and how you can support us

Hi all,

Since the government has announced a lockdown we will extend our closure until April 13th (for now) and keep you posted on updates.

  • Our shop remains open for orders, and we’ll endeavour to get order out as quickly as we can – this is the best way to support us in this time, as this is now our only revenue stream. Plus our ropes are great and we have a sale on 🙂
  • We will be exploring livestreaming classes from our Zoom pro account – our first one is this Thursday, it’s super cheap because it’s our very first go at it, and you can pay what you can.
  • You can also take a look at our FREE online videos, both on the studio account and on Anna Bones’ personal account.

For any questions, feel free to email us at – please be patient with us while we work our way through our inbox!

Anatomie Live! Our Classes, Livestreamed.

Since we cannot welcome you into our physical space at the moment, we thought we would bring you a taste of Anatomie directly to your living room!

We’re in the Evening Standard!

We’re so excited about this fantastic article in the Evening Standard! It’s an honest and open minded no-nonsense article about our Thursday evening beginners classes and we are so proud to have been featured here. Thank you Molly for the write-up!

New things… Videos!

We added a new section to our website with some lighthearted and simple videos! Ideal for those who have been to our beginner classes and looking to job their memory or simply for those looking for a bit of inspiration.

They are not tutorials, just videos of us tying basic ties and simple patterns that we’ve come up with and experimented with.

Check it out over here!

We will post more in the months to come so keep checking back. In the meantime, if you are new or not-so-new but want to brush up and build on your skills, join us for our Thursday beginners nights or book onto our courses over here.

There are many ways to tie a safe and solid Takate Kote (also referred to as Gote or Box Tie). Here Anna Bones ties the first rope of a Takate Kote as tied in our Takate Kote classes and beginners classes. This is a good revision video, if you’ve attended our classes and need a bit of a reminder. Aspects shown: placing the hands, tying the single column tie, placement of the top wrap and tying the X-friction. This isn’t a tutorial, lots of things aren’t being shown and it’s definitely not a tie worthy of suspension. Join our classes and learn it properly!

New Year, New Adventures?

Start your personal adventure this year by trying something new and unconventional – join our jams and discover what rope can bring to your life. More than strings on bodies, shibari can be a real game changer, a vehicle for personal discovery and growth, a way to connect more deeply with your partner(s), and a way to get that sense of community and belonging so many of us miss in these modern times.

Our beginner’s evenings are every Thursday, and if you bring a partner they pay half price this month!
