Wykd Dave & Clover : Exploring technique, aesthetics and emotion in rope – Book your place!

Wykd dave and Clover 2018Wykd Dave and Clover 2018

“I don’t do rope, I do people.
But I do them with rope”

– Wykd Dave

Wykd Dave & Clover return to Anatomie! This is rare opportunity to learn from Wykd Dave and Clover as they seldom teach inside the UK!

This year, they will be offering a weekend intensive for the more advanced students (May 26 & 27), and also a one day class on the ‘Aesthetics of Emotion’ (Monday May 28th) which is open to beginners and all levels.

You can book into all 3 days as a bundle, or just the weekend / just the Monday class.

If you are new / not yet doing suspensions, we highly recommend taking advantage of the Monday class, which will no doubt be incredibly inspirational!

* * *

Wykd Dave has in the past few years been teaching and performing throughout the world with his partner Clover. His work has appeared in Films, music videos, international fashion magazines and even in Paris’s Louvre gallery. His teaching has revolutionised rope bondage for many students around the world as he shares his own take on what’s important to learn and understand about rope. He has also accomplished the rare and almost unique feat of having created ties and techniques that are now used and taught in Japan.

Wykd Dave  teaches together with his partner Clover who provides her perspective as a rope bottom. They both believe that education for models/bottoms is just as important as for riggers. Clover is the author of the first ever document written for rope bottoms: A Guide Rope Bottoms & Bondage Models (which is available online for free).

See you soon!

Are you looking for a blank canvas for a photo or video project? Get in touch!

During April rates for our new space are £200 for the day (8hours) or £100 half day (4 hours). The space has a kitchen and bathroom with running water, concrete floors and brick wall as shown in the photo. It is a 2 mins walk away from cafes, restaurants and a Tesco and restaurants.

Email us for enquiries and bookings!

We did it! We are moving!

It is with extreme pleasure and excitement that we can finally announce that we are moving!

As of March 20th 2018, we have signed the lease on a new space in Queens Road Peckham. The space is a 1200 sq ft railway arch with its own bathroom and kitchen. The venue is street level so it is also wheelchair accessible.

The space is located a 2 min walk away from Queen Road Peckham station which is on the overground network. It is one train stop away from London Bridge and two stops away from Canada Water (Jubilee Line). Both Peckham Rye station and New Cross gate stations are a 15mins walking distance (or you can take a short bus). Take a look at the map here for transport connections. The studio is also a 5 min walk away from a Tesco, and various coffee shops, restaurants and pubs.

The space ticks all the boxes regarding location, price, and proximity to shops and the main road. Additionally it is self-contained (with own bathroom and kitchen) and with proper electrical power and insulation.

Our fundraiser is below, we need all the help we can get to kick start the space in the best possible way. Any little helps to reach our goal. The money will be used to build a structure for our suspension work & photography. We are currently in touch with companies regarding estimates.

“So you want to get tied?” – Introducing a semi-regular class for new rope bottoms & the curious!

So you want to get tied?

So you want to get tied? Great!

Are you aware of the risks involved in rope bondage?
Have you heard of nerve damage?
Are you aware of your responsibilities as a rope bottom?
Do you know how to negotiate a rope scene? Vet potential rope partners and assess a riggers skill level?

Then this short and fun class is for you!

Come take advantage of our many years of experience bottoming in rope and gain the tools, vocabulary and confidence to have amazing rope experiences.

We will teach a mix of soft and hard practical skills you can use in rope:

• Getting to know what you want and how to get it
• Understanding bottoming responsibilities
• Deep quiet submission or loud primal prey? Discover different ways to bottom in ropes
• How to find, vet and assess partners and their rope skills
• What does ‘good safe rope’ look/feel like anyway
• Is this good pain or bad pain?
• What to do when things go wrong?
• Consent in kink, BDSM and ropes – how does this work and how to stay safe

In this class you will have the opportunity to work in pairs and/or groups, there will be exercises involving ropes so can experience being tied.

This class is ideal for beginners, but also open to all levels. You are welcome to come on your own or bring your rigging partner to the class.

Dates: April 18th, May 9th, June 27th.

Anatomie in the Metro!

Screen Shot 2018-02-21 at 20.33.07

Anna Bones runs Anatomie Shibari studio with her partner Fred Hatt.

‘I discovered ropes in 2013 and fell head over heels in love with it.

‘I met my partner at my first ever rope event and we’ve been together ever since. We’ve been teaching and performing internationally since 2014 and opened our own venue in 2015.

‘There’s an ever growing interest in learning shibari.

‘Our mission is primarily education and we’re focused on the teaching of shibari knowledge, with regular workshops from total beginner to advanced skills.

‘Being a female-led space, we seek to empower our audience and students when it comes to their bodies and their sexuality by giving them the vocabulary and tools to work with that go beyond just the ropes.

‘Our clientele ranges from young to old, of all genders and ethnicities and all shapes and sizes. ‘Some come with partners, some alone – it’s very easy to make friends and find partners to tie with during the socials and rope jams.’

Kinoko Hajime’s first workshop at Anatomie! What a week!

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.

Enjoy!

1, 2, 3…. Shibari! A better, more exciting year starts here!

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).

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.
