Togetherness Festival : teaching consent and power exchange to mainstream audiences

We’re sharing the below images from Togetherness Festival last year where Sophia and I (Anna) taught to a mainstream audience. There were about 160 people in the class, we had to use a microphone to teach as we introduced topics of kink, BDSM, rope and power exchange to people who had never thought about these topics and even to people who were skeptical about the topics. It was incredible, one of my favourite teaching moments, and Sophia was incredible as always.

One of the most striking differences between teaching within the rope or kink community and mainstream events is the awareness about consent. We really had to speak about this a lot more than we would normally have to in rope/kink communities. And even then there was a consent incident in our class which we had to address during the event.

It was definitely eye opening, challenging and immensely rewarding. We are super happy to be doing it again with Sophia at Togetherness Summer Festival.

Anatomie in the Metro!

Anna Bones runs Anatomie Shibari studio with her partner Fred Hatt.

‘I discovered ropes in 2013 and fell head over heels in love with it.

‘I met my partner at my first ever rope event and we’ve been together ever since. We’ve been teaching and performing internationally since 2014 and opened our own venue in 2015.

‘There’s an ever growing interest in learning shibari.

‘Our mission is primarily education and we’re focused on the teaching of shibari knowledge, with regular workshops from total beginner to advanced skills.

‘Being a female-led space, we seek to empower our audience and students when it comes to their bodies and their sexuality by giving them the vocabulary and tools to work with that go beyond just the ropes.

‘Our clientele ranges from young to old, of all genders and ethnicities and all shapes and sizes. ‘Some come with partners, some alone – it’s very easy to make friends and find partners to tie with during the socials and rope jams.’

Kinoko Hajime’s first workshop at Anatomie! What a week!

For this past week, we’ve had the great pleasure to welcome world renown shibari artist Kinoko Hajime from Japan to our studio! Workshop tickets were released in September and sold out within 38 seconds, establishing a new record for us!

On the last day, participants created a gigantic web of ropes with Kinoko’s guidance and help – a trademark of his workshops and of his work as a rope artist.

Participants were photographed and video’d inside the ropes, looking like a freeze frame of suspended dolls. The scene was wonderful to behold and was the perfect finale to the intense 4 days of classes and performances.

Enjoy!

1, 2, 3…. Shibari! A better, more exciting year starts here!

A better more exciting year starts here… Learn Shibari with us in 2018! 

In 2018 we have more, better and more diverse classes than ever!

Total newbie? Not sure where to start? We’ve got you! Every Thursday we host a beginners Rope Jam where you can learn the basics and make friends for £10 per person (tea, coffee and ropes included). If you’re looking for structured classes, we have a semi-regular full weekend workshop called Discover Shibari, as well as a myriad of classes open to beginners and all levels.

On a deadline to become an expert? We can help too. We have a set of 3 progressive courses that’ll take you from zero to suspensions and transitions. If the schedule doesn’t work out for you, we occasionally provide private one-on-one tuition.

Flying solo? You don’t need a partner to join our Rope Jams and Community ClassesSome workshops have individual tickets on sale too. If you want to find a partner, come to a Rope Jam and get to know your community.

On a budget? Our Community Classes are pay-what-you-can donation based and most of our evening classes cost under £50 (for two). And ourRope Jams cost as little as £8 per person.

Don’t meet the pre-requisites for classes? That’s cool! Most of our workshops in 2018 are open to all levels. Our Community Classes also don’t pre-requisites, neither do our Rope Jams. But if you want to learn the pre-requisites for the advanced classes, you can for as a little as £45.

Just want to watch? That’s possible too! We have a monthly life-drawing evening called Drawn to Rope for the artists out there and regular performance nights for the curious. Our Rope Jams are also a good place to sit back and enjoy the view over a cup of tea (it’s free).

For a complete list of our 2018 events, check out our calendar over here.

2018 Rope Jam and Study Group dates

All our rope jam dates, including our beginners rope jams, The Big Jam and our mid-week rope jam dates are now listed and announced on Facebook!

We have also added dates for our Study Group sessions, which are becoming increasingly popular!

Please note we are raising our prices in 2018:

Weekday rope jams will be £8 per person, except the beginners jam which will go up to £10 per person (or £8 after 9pm – after the class). The Big Jam will be £15 per person and the Study Group £20 per pair/couple. This will greatly help us to maintain the high quality of teaching we have in the studio, especially on beginners nights, as it ensures we can pay our instructors for their time and dedication.
