Friday Rope Bites were created to be a safe space for rope admirers to come practice and play with each other and their craft. They are not classes but workshops, where we learn from our peers and have the time and space to pass the rope through our hands and over our bodies. We invite everyone who is vetted to come to enjoy practicing, learning, and hanging out in the space. We rent a dance studio in Ashland which provides us with yoga mats, a bathroom, and a large open floor to spread out. Mistress Knotty will be there to offer tips and tricks but does not teach at the Rope Bites. She does offer some tastings but they have to be scheduled prior to the Bite, please email us if you would like to set one up or have any questions.
What to Bring:
This one is important. Anyone who will be tying is REQUIRED to have a pair.
We do have some for purchase - $10
Your own rope
We have some for people to borrow but not a lot.
There is a bathroom with a sink if you want to refill, but not many cups.
Make sure you are properly fed at least 3 hours in advance but bringing some snacks is highly suggested by bunnies and riggers alike
We plan on getting into some weird positions. Tight and flexible items are the best for bunnies and anything you can kneel or bend in for riggers.
It is paramount that you understand where your headspace is before playing with anyone, and rope is no exception.
Again you MUST be vetted to come to class. We will deny anyone access who has not been vetted. To get vetted you will need to meet with Mistress Knotty face to face and answer a couple of questions. Don't worry she isn't that scary ;). If you want to be vetted email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Disclaimer: if we do not get enough people to sign up for the class then we will have to cancel. We pay for this venue out of pocket.
We hope to see you there!
