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 – they are all listed here.
Mainly interested in getting tied rather than tying? Learn about the ins and outs of rope bottoming/modelling at ‘So You Want To Get Tied?’ classes! Join us on Thursday’s for our beginners Rope Jam where you can pair up with others wanting to learn to tie. You can also book into Discover Shibari as a solo attendee and do the workshop as a rope bottom – there’s plenty of material for rope bottoms in that class (and in most of our classes).
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 also provide private one-on-one tuition.
Flying solo? You don’t need a partner to join our Rope Jams and Community Classes. Some 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 our Rope Jams cost as little as £8 per person, you can make friends, practice what you know and learn from other attendees.
Don’t meet the pre-requisites for classes? That’s cool! A lot 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.
Our Discover Shibari weekends have sold our for 2018 so we are introducing two extra date to carry out ‘mini’ Discover Shibari workshops for those who missed out on our original weekend beginners courses!
Dates: Sunday September 30th & Sunday December 9th.
This a condensed version of the complete course, we will be giving your all the fundamental tools of shibari for you to have fun, play, and progress in your journey. This is still a very complete workshop, the one think we will not be covering in depth is the Takate Kote, but we host semi-regular Takate Kote evening intensive crash courses throughout the year so you can book into one of those if you feel you need even more technique.
To book onto our mini-Discover Shibari workshops, it’s right over here!

We’re sharing the below images from Togetherness Festival last year where Sophia and I (Anna) taught to a mainstream audience. There were about 160 people in the class, we had to use a microphone to teach as we introduced topics of kink, BDSM, rope and power exchange to people who had never thought about these topics and even to people who were skeptical about the topics. It was incredible, one of my favourite teaching moments, and Sophia was incredible as always.
One of the most striking differences between teaching within the rope or kink community and mainstream events is the awareness about consent. We really had to speak about this a lot more than we would normally have to in rope/kink communities. And even then there was a consent incident in our class which we had to address during the event.
