All Tied Up with Stella

Rope Workshop and Women’s Play Party

Does the idea of restraint turn you on? Do you want to learn the building blocks of rope bondage?

In this class you will learn basic safety along with the single column tie, double column tie, and a simple chest harness. With these fundamentals you will be able to improvise and create many different bondage positions and hot scenarios. You’ll also learn ways to use rope to build intimacy and connection while you’re tying, and tricks to help you build confidence as a beginner.

It’s ideal if you come with a practice partner, but folks who come alone may be able to pair off with other students and most of these ties can also be practiced solo. Please bring rope if you have it, but some practice rope will be available. Absolute beginners and experienced ropers are encouraged to attend. It never hurts (unless you want it to) to go back to the basics and possibly meet new play partners who are interested in rope.
