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. Tying models from local kinksters and friends with no modelling experience to internationally known stars like FKA Twigs and Lady Gaga. His teaching has revolutionized rope bondage for many students around the world as he shares his own take on what’s important to learn and understand about rope.

His views are the result of years of experience, analysis and thought after tying, teaching and performing all over the world. He teaches together with his partner Clover providing her perspective as a rope bottom and believes that education for models/bottoms is just as important as for riggers.

Time and experience are constantly changing and evolving his bondage and his classes making them a different experience every time. It is his proud boast to have created some of the most copied rope bondage classes in the world.

He has also accomplished the rare and almost unique feat of having created ties and techniques that are now used and taught in Japan.

Workshop Description:

The aesthetics of emotion are a combination of concepts, feelings and sensibilities, each cultivated according to individual taste and desire.

These tastes and desires themselves develop over time with each individual’s experience. Everything in our lives influence who we are, what we like, our taste in art & music, our aesthetic choices in life, in bondage, in every decision we make to influence our own environment and the things we choose to surround ourselves with.

You will explore how these concepts relate to bondage beauty and emotion in generating the intense feelings and connection within a bondage scene both in theory and practice.

This unique workshop deals with the deep concepts at the heart of the beauty of bondage holds for us and goes beyond rope and into the realms of building an experience and your own awareness.

Join us in exploring some of the most important concepts for deepening your bondage experience. Space, focus, mind and emotion.
