Pay-what-you-can community classes

At Anatomie Studio we strive to bring you the best shibari classes with the very best shibari teachers we know, and although the workshops can be pricey, we think they’re well worth the investment, especially considering rope can be a high risk activity!

However, not everyone is able to afford our classes, and being committed to the dissemination of rope education as we are in the studio, we wanted to offer everyone the possibility to learn within their budgets in the new year.

Next class: June 15th 7:00-10:30pm | 

Topic: ‘The synergetic bottoming approach: do good bottoms make good riggers? Or do good riggers make good bottoms?’ With FredHatt & Anna Bones

What comes first: good bottoming or good ropes? For Anna and Fred, the answer in ‘neither’ and ‘both. (And what does ‘good’ mean anyway?).

Anna has been tying with Fred within the context of a partnership (both personal and work related) for 5 years, and it’s not a coincidence that she feels like a stronger model today as Fred’s ropes themselves have progressed throughout the years. During their time together they have discovered some of the key aspects of rigging that crack the code for great modelling. And the devil is all in the details.

Starting from the bottom (pun intended) from feet to head, Anna and Fred will share some of their findings in this class. These include tips about placement, tension, and how to read the body/have your body be read by your rigger and more. This class is a collection of little golden nuggets of rope & bottoming wisdom that can be applied to all kinds of rope situations both for better modelling and better rigging (because what is a good rigger if not someone who facilitates a rope bottom to soar – whatever that may mean to you – in ropes?).

This is a bottoming class, but a synergetic bottoming class for BOTH riggers and models, because Anna and Fred believe that one cannot exist without the other.

Next class: June 20th 7:00-10:30pm |
Topic: ‘Before the rope comes out: consent and negotiation’ with Oceanschild

What is consent, anyways? Who consents in rope- and how do you get consent? Why, when, and where do you negotiate?

This class will explore the culture of consent that is so important in rope: it’ll be a guided discussion for all levels. We’ll cover consent from both sides of the rope, within new or established relationships, and discuss internal vs explicit expectations. We’ll discuss and practice different types of negotiation, and trouble-shoot common pitfalls.

We’ll also work through ‘What to do when shit goes wrong’- and ‘what to do when shit goes right!’

This class will have minimal hands-on rope, and is suitable for all levels. No partner necessary.

Topic: ’50 F****ed Up Things To Do with Single Column Ties’ with FredHatt & Anna Bones

One of Fred Hatt’s favourite things is the ability to create intense sensations and predicaments with as little rope as possible. In this class he will share some of his favourites with the help of his partner and accomplice Anna Bones.

They will show various ways to immobilise, inflict intense sensations, lock the body into predicaments and place your partner into positions for play, pain and sex using exclusively single column ties.

This class is suitable for all levels. We will show how to tie a single column tie for those

who don’t already know it. For those who do, any single column tie of your choice can be used in this class.
