Fly! Intro to Suspension : Learn the art of shibari suspension with Fred Hatt & Anna Bones!

Screen Shot 2017-07-18 at 16.07.59

Want to learn the art of shibari suspensions from one of the best in Europe?
Join us in August!

Studio owners Fred and Anna have been tying together since 2013 and regularly teach & perform inside and outside the UK.

Their foundational classes at Anatomie Studio are unparalleled in terms of the depth, detail and technical information offered. Their classes focus as much on the ‘how’ as well as the ‘why’ behind everything they do in rope. Fred and Anna work as a team so their classes have as much information for riggers as they do for rope bottoms.

Their teaching style has been described as compassionate, approachable, extremely detailed and bottom aware.

For more information about Fred and Anna see their website here:

For more details about the workshop’s program including pre-requisites please see our Facebook listing here.

To book onto this weekend workshop, it’s right over here.

Pay-what-you-can Community Class this Friday June 23rd!

Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 11.19.55

Our next community class is happening this Friday!

This month we will be covering how to build diamond patterns​ (or ‘hishi’ patterns) using three different rope techniques. We will learn about technical details, but also aesthetics as well as the sensations and feelings that we can create with diamond patterns. Anna Bones will be leading the class. Knowledge of a single column tie is highly desirable.

Reserve your spot here (for free) and pay on the day in cash at the end of the class. We suggest a minimum donation of £10 per person, please give what feels right within your budget.


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.

For this reason, in 2017 we are introducing semi-regular ‘Pay-What-You-Can’ community shibari classes by our in-house teachers. The classes will follow an informal structure, providing a mix of tutoring and peer lab time.

Discover Shibari with us this April!

New or new-ish to rope? Want to learn the fundamentals of shibari? Then Come discover it with us next Sunday April 9th in our bright, positive, friendly environment!

From its origins and history, to human anatomy and body mechanics, to learning the ABC’s of rope handling and flow, this class is designed to get your creative juices flowing and inspire you body, mind and soul. Learn to connect with your partner in ropes, learn to handle and manipulate the body, and learn to tie all the basic shibari patterns as well as how to freestyle in rope!

No rope. No partner. No experience needed!

Our “Discover Shibari” sessions are full-day hands-on classes taught to you by our Anatomie ‘House Cats’ and are a culmination of over one and a half years of collective experience and learning from teaching beginners during our Thursday beginner rope jams. This class is a true reflection of the spirit and modern approach to rope we have in the studio and the program has a strong influence from the many wonderful presenters that have passed through our doors and also presenters we have learned from abroad.

Our first ever class is taking place on April 9th, and tickets are half gone already.

Ropey Halloween at Anatomie Studio!

Join us this Friday for a playful evening of ropes with Miss Eris and Maya Homerton a all the way from Spain!

Kinbaku After Dark is our monthly rope play evening (meaning there is no teaching of any kind and the evening is dedicated for playfulness with ropes rather than rope practice).

This month we have the pleasure to host two wonderful ladies who will be putting on two short Halloween themed rope shows to kick start the night! First Miss Eris will be performing with the luscious Maya Homerton, and then Miss Eris will be tying one our (fairly tall and muscular male) regulars at the studio! How does a 5’2 rigger suspend a 6’2 man in the air? Come find out!

Get your tickets here

Miss Eris and Maya Homerton are also teaching a very fabulous workshop on Saturday (1-7pm) called The Suspended Body where they will be teaching techniques for efficient and intelligent suspensions and suspension transitions. There will be lots of information on body management for both riggers and bottoms in order to achieve comfortable and smooth suspensions.

About Fred Hatt & Anna Bones

FredHatt and MissBones are academics, researchers and teachers by training so their approach and love for rope is very much driven by an intellectual curiosity to understand how rope works at its many levels: be in the technical aspects of how the rope (the material) is actually made, to understanding how to the creative process works and the ‘maths’ behind the mechanics of rope & body. Overall, they lean towards a rather technical style of rope, with Fred Hatt‘s trademark subtle geeky sadism complimenting Anna Bones’ playful bendiness.

They have been tying together since 2013 and regularly teach and perform both inside and outside the UK (BED, Shibaricamp, EURIX, BOUND, The Soap Box, TWISTED). They have also been organising rope events in London since 2014, first through ‘Pop-up Rope Events’ and more recently (since June 2015) through Anatomie Studio – the UK’s only full-time shibari studio.

As a couple MissBones and FredHatt regularly attend as many rope-workshops and conferences as possible. This enables them to stay in touch with the international community, while keeping up with all the latest developments. They have been fortunately enough to learn from many wonderful people, including: Kazami Ranki, Hajime Kinoko, Akira Naka, Miumi-U, Barkas, Kasumi Hourai, Ren Yagami, Wykd Dave and Pedro Cordas.

The Suspended Body (Workshop)

How do get your partner in the air in a way that is smart, elegant, comfortable and efficient? And how to do you bring them down smoothly? How do you transition your partner in a logical and effective way? Importantly, how do you manipulate their body’s on the ground and in the air in a comfortable and energy efficient manner?

This and more is what Eris and Maya are proposing to offer in this one day workshop!

Event listing here.

Measuring in at slightly under 160cm tall, and weighing less than 45 kg, Eris‘ entire rigging experience is based on tying people larger and heavier than herself. She has therefore become one the most experienced riggers at tying people much larger than herself! The smallest model she has ever tied is Gorgone. Through this, Eris has developed many techniques to manager her own energy levels to tie, making her a unique resource in the current rope scene.

Maya‘s yoga background makes one of the most body aware models we can think of, and her vast experience inside the ropes means she has accumulated a lot of tips and tricks to navigate her body in suspension and in suspension and transitions. In the workshop she will be sharing her modelling knowledge!

Together, Eris and Maya make an exciting and knowledgeable rope duo, which is sure to make this workshop one very unique experience!

This is super opportunity to home in on your suspension skills and transitions skills. Lots of fantastic info for riggers and bottoms, including lots of body movement & body management information. There will also a lot of information about efficiency, comfort and conserving energy with smooth ways of bringing a body into suspension and also taking the body down smoothly back down from the air!

Please make sure you meet the pre-requisites before booking, thank you!
