(Contains elements of Tension and OneRope but is less in depth than either.)
Rope bondage isn’t a craft project, it’s an interaction between two like minded people. Good technique and knowledge are vital but, without knowing how to utilise them it is all too easy to remain disconnected from your partner.
This class is about keeping you connected.

One Rope & Minimalist rope

Doing as much as possible with as little as possible.
How far can you take a little rope? This hands on class explores the possibilities.

Partnership & Working Together
Bondage is never one size fits all but in many classes everyone gets taught the same thing. What you may learn from one source might not work well with you and your partner. One of the greatest skills in rope bondage is learning to understand what works between you and your partner. This is best accomplished with the involvement and cooperation of top and bottom with communication and understanding. In this co-taught class Clover and WykD Dave work hands on with couples as top and bottom looking at what you actually do, to help you to resolve problems and find what really works for you both together.
Type: Hands On
When a scene goes wrong
We all want to have THAT amazing scene we have been planning and looking forward to during a rope conference. With the amount of pressure we put on ourselves to perform at our best, be that submit or tie, together with hours of learning each day, lack of sleep, poor eating habits and great surge of emotions packed into one weekend, it is highly likely when it comes to having THAT scene in the late or early hours things may not go to plan. This class will look at things you can do to prevent and more importantly how to recover from a scene that did not go to plan.
