Rope Jam | Self Tie Jam - Beginner Friendly

Description

Self Tie Jam - Beginner FriendlySelf-tying is a wonderful way to connect with your body in all aspects. With this jam, the aim will be handling your own body and setting an intention with yourself to explore. Kay (at_faeriebunnyrope) will be holding space for the first hour of the jam and will take you through a self-tie.
DescriptionEmbodiment Rope Space is a welcoming and safe(r) space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We practice rope communally and host occasional workshops for upskilling the community. Rope is never safe, there are only ways to do it more safely.
Absolute beginners and experienced rope practitioners are welcome to this jam. Rope Jams are spaces where you can come and practice rope tying in a peer-to-peer setting. Singles, couples, throuples, etc. are all welcome. Switching is allowed and encouraged.  If you do not have a partner(s) to attend with, you may have to self-tie or enquire with other participants to pair up. Class rope will be available for use for free on the day if you do not have your own rope.
Events start promptly at 19:00. Please DM us via Instagram if you are running late. Doors open at 18:40 and are closed at 19:10. We will be strict about this because late-coming can be very disruptive to those in the space. Pre-booking is essential (cash on the night is available by arrangement via Instagram DM). Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival. 
We have limited treated rope from Sudo Jute for sale and safety shears. Non-alcoholic drinks (coke, water, tea, coffee) will also be for sale. 
Come dressed however you like - comfy, sexy, sporty, fetish. As long as your booty is covered, you are welcome here. 
About UsEmbodiment Rope Space is the love child of a group of volunteers from different walks of life coming together to actualize something we think the world needs: a queer safe(r) space for exploring kink as a healing, connective force.

FAQWhat is Shibari/Kinbaku/Bondage? The art of binding the body of a consenting adult. 
Is rope always sexual?Rope has many benefits and practitioners outside of the sexual paradigm. For some, it is about pushing their bodies not unlike engaging in strenuous exercise or extreme sports. For some, it is a way to reclaim their agency after trauma. For some, it is a way to experience a connection with others without the scripts and expectations associated with genital contact. As long as what you are doing is consensual and intentional, we consider it healthy and valid.
What should I wear?This is a friendly learning environment, not a sexual one, so crotches are to remain covered. Other than that, you are free to wear whatever you like. We find that it is easier to tie with minimal clothing or clothing that you can move in easily (leggings, shorts, etc.).
Do I need to bring my own rope?We have class rope available on the day - which is free to use - supplied by Sudo Jute. All our class rope is made from jute, is preconditioned, and well broken in. We do not allow crotch rope or any bodily fluids on our class rope to keep our rope sanitary and in good working condition. We do have Sudo Jute rope on sale if you want your own to take home.
Can I come by myself/alone?For this jam, we will encourage participants to come along, come with a friend, or even attend as the whole polycule! If you do not have a partner(s) to attend with, you may have to self-tie or enquire with other participants to pair up. We can not however guarantee a partner for you, nor is there any obligation from other solo participants to pair up.
