1 Rope, 2 Knots and 3 TiesCleveland, OH -- Derek and I are about to teach our One Rope, Two Knots and Three Ties workshop at CLAW. The class will be held at Flex as part of the Skills Workshops Series. The class starts at 2:40pm. You can download a PDF of the class handout by clicking the image to the right.

This is an introductory class that simplifies rope bondage down to its most basic elements. There are limitless possibilities in the creative use of a few basic ties. All you really need are a couple of simple knots and a few simple ties to have a ton of fun. We will show how most bondage is done by combining a few basic building blocks - and show very easy to learn ways to do them. Then we'll show how these can be combined in endless creative ways. Ties covered include a simplified one column tie, a simplified two column tie and a basic body harness. All of these are done using only two different knots - yet they can be used for varying applications like a spread eagle bed tie, a hog tie, a chair tie, and many other variations.

This class seeks to teach a foundational philosophy of bondage that breaks away from rote ties and instead shows how you can unleash countless ties by using your creativity in combining a few simple building blocks.

Bring at least one piece of 30' rope (or more rope for more fun) for this hands-on class.
