Who can come to this class? Are there pre-requisites?

This class has pre-requisites for riggers and rope bottoms/models – please make sure you meet these before booking to avoid disappointment on the day:

• Completion of Course 1 or the Takate Kote evening crash course gives both riggers and models the necessary pre-requisites for this course.
• Riggers must be able to tie a structural 2 rope Takate Kote in under 15 minutes.
• Pairs must preferably tie with 6mm jute ropes, preferably single ply.
• Riggers and models must know how to check for nerve impingement.
• Rope bottoms should be familiar with the differences between nerve and circulation impingement. Models must be able to recognise and communicate signs of nerve impingement to riggers effectively and timely. Models should be able to process pain and take some enjoyment in intense sensations.

What should I bring and what do I wear?

We have a communal kitchenette, fridge and microwave, so feel free to bring lunch/snacks. Tea and coffee are free. People usually wear comfortable clothing like yoga or dance attire. We advise against loose fitting clothing and also jeans can sometimes feel a bit restrictive to move around in and difficult to tie on. We have communal ropes if you don’t have your own.

When does it take place? This is workshop takes place Saturday September 22nd (1-7pm).

Who teaches this class?

This workshop is taught by one of Anatomie’s ‘House Cat’ Mercandbear Fet

MnR discovered shibari in 2014 and this evolved into a love affair with ropes. He enjoys learning, practicing and connecting with different people and attends many rope workshops in the UK and abroad. Although he mostly ties, he greatly enjoys getting tied when there is an opportunity. He has been a regular at Anatomie Studio since it opened and quickly became an essential member of the studio.


How much does this cost? £80 per couple.
