Meet the basic pre-requisites for Courses 2 & 3.
It’s the quintessential shibari form and the one pre-requisite for most shibari classes & workshops. Learn the basic principles and pattern of the two rope Takate Kote (or ‘TK’) with Fred & Anna in this 3 hour evening class! You’ll also learn about rope tension, rope flow, anatomy, safety & communication.
Where can I find the full class program? You can find it on the event listings (below).
Who can come to this class? This class is open to all levels and complete beginners. No rope needed. No experience needed. No partner required. We have ‘Two Together’ and ‘Individual’ tickets available so you can come on your own or with a partner. If you come on your own you will be able to pair up with someone else on an individual ticket during the class and you will be switching throughout the class (tying and being tied).
What should I bring and what do I wear? We have ropes you can use during the class and we have a communal kitchenette, fridge and microwave. Tea and coffee are free but you should bring your food and snacks (we have plates and cutlery you can use). 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.
When does it take place? This is an evening class. It usually takes place on a Wednesday from 7:00pm to 10:30pm.
Upcoming dates: February 20 | More dates TBA
