  • Rope Lab is an advanced social skill share and practice space.
  • Rope + More is an open skill share event for anyone interested in combining rope bondage (including self-tying) with acro-yoga and similar skill sets.
  • Rope Study we work in cooperation with Rope Study to offer a series of courses and workshops designed for both tops and bottoms to help them progress from beginner to advanced.
  • We also hold special events and guest presenters throughout the year.

Consider joining Rope Study!
Rope Study offers courses, workshops, and private instruction designed for both tops and bottoms to promote risk-aware rope bondage at a responsible progression. They typically run courses in the spring and fall of each year, but you can also schedule individual or small-group private instruction with them. Visit the Rope Study page for more information and upcoming classes.

While you’re there, consider taking their online starter offerings. (They’re free!)

  • Rope 101 is an online course designed to give you some basic information about rope bondage and suggestions for where to go next in your study.
  • Risk Profiles in Rope Bondage is an online workshop designed to help you identify your own risk profile and use that to inform your approach to rope study and progression.
