A better more exciting year starts here… Learn Shibari with us in 2018! 

In 2018 we have more, better and more diverse classes than ever!

Total newbie? Not sure where to start? We’ve got you! Every Thursday we host a beginners Rope Jam where you can learn the basics and make friends for £10 per person (tea, coffee and ropes included). If you’re looking for structured classes, we have a semi-regular full weekend workshop called Discover Shibari, as well as a myriad of classes open to beginners and all levels.

On a deadline to become an expert? We can help too. We have a set of 3 progressive courses that’ll take you from zero to suspensions and transitions. If the schedule doesn’t work out for you, we occasionally provide private one-on-one tuition.

Flying solo? You don’t need a partner to join our Rope Jams and Community ClassesSome workshops have individual tickets on sale too. If you want to find a partner, come to a Rope Jam and get to know your community.

On a budget? Our Community Classes are pay-what-you-can donation based and most of our evening classes cost under £50 (for two). And ourRope Jams cost as little as £8 per person.

Don’t meet the pre-requisites for classes? That’s cool! Most of our workshops in 2018 are open to all levels. Our Community Classes also don’t pre-requisites, neither do our Rope Jams. But if you want to learn the pre-requisites for the advanced classes, you can for as a little as £45.

Just want to watch? That’s possible too! We have a monthly life-drawing evening called Drawn to Rope for the artists out there and regular performance nights for the curious. Our Rope Jams are also a good place to sit back and enjoy the view over a cup of tea (it’s free).

For a complete list of our 2018 events, check out our calendar over here.

Shibari Showcase 2017! What a night!

We are so proud and overwhelmed with the quality and the standards of the shibari performances we witnessed at this year’s annual showcase! All performers – who are either our students and members of our community – went on stage to perform in rope for the first time, and simply blew our minds!

Performances ranged from theatrical, to intimate, they made us laugh, cry, feel things and showed a variety of dynamics, levels of play and intimacy. Just simply WOW.

Here are some of the highlights of the night. Photos by Anna Bones.

DJfet & RESPECT performing with no music and one single rope.


BurgundyRose & Anonymous’ super sexy and playful dynamic performance, complete with flower petal drop!


Our own House Cat ‘knot my name’ performing with Stephani Lythe in floaty dancy fabric.


SLUGS! Need I say more? ‘Slug’ performing a solo self-suspension act.

2018 Rope Jam and Study Group dates

All our rope jam dates, including our beginners rope jams, The Big Jam and our mid-week rope jam dates are now listed and announced on Facebook!

We have also added dates for our Study Group sessions, which are becoming increasingly popular!

Please note we are raising our prices in 2018:

Weekday rope jams will be £8 per person, except the beginners jam which will go up to £10 per person (or £8 after 9pm – after the class). The Big Jam will be £15 per person and the Study Group £20 per pair/couple. This will greatly help us to maintain the high quality of teaching we have in the studio, especially on beginners nights, as it ensures we can pay our instructors for their time and dedication.

2018 NEWS : Booking into our foundational shibari courses

Hello all! Tickets for Course 1 are already going and we’d like to remind everyone that tickets for Course 2 will only be available for those who complete Course 1. This way we ensure a safe and fair environment for everyone attending.

Pre-requisites are not just there for riggers but also for the MODELS/BOTTOMS/PARTNERS. As a model, showing up unprepared for a class puts you, your rigger and your fellow students at risk. We’ve seen this happen and it’s not nice for those involved, so please be considerate and do your homework before classes.

We provide a lot of resources and information for very little money (£7 on a Thursday beginner rope jam) so there are no excuses not to meet the pre-requisites for classes for either riggers or models.

For question, email us at anatomie.studio@gmail.com.

If you cannot do Course 1 and still want to do Course 2, we can offer private one-on-one tuition. However we highly recommend attending the Discover Shibari Course even if you feel you’re not a beginner as it’s a really complete class with tons of details and fun exercises for body, mind and soul.

Thank you for reading!
