This hands-on workshop is open to all levels, and is specifically aimed at beginners who want a starting point into play and rope. We will look at simple, effective, versatile tools that can be combined to create satisfying scenes. No experience is necessary. We will cover a basic single and double handcuff, a simple chest harness, a thigh tie, as well as some fun uses for each. We will also explore some favourite non-rope tools: predicaments, pressure points, basic bare-handed impact, and the creative use of a big stick. We will look at timing, teasing, reading your partner’s reactions, evaluating the progress of the scene, and playing with sensations. There will be plenty of time to practice and play during the class, so come prepared to explore and have fun.
