ROPETIMES returns to Midsumma after a sell-out workshop in 2022. Facilitated by acclaimed artist and ropeworker, Luke George (NGV/RISING) – an introductory rope bondage class for beginners and anyone who wants to learn, practice and play. Come with a partner to rope with or meet someone at the workshop. No previous experience required. Rope provided.
In this workshop, Luke will teach foundation principles and techniques of rope bondage. You’ll learn a few simple ties to get you started on your rope journey, focusing on safety and communication whilst building sensation, trust and the dynamic connection between Rigger (Dom) and bunny (Sub).
Rope is a sensitive and dynamic material. It can act like a conductor between bodies where energy, pleasure and power are exchanged. An alluring art form and a form of play, rope bondage is a dynamic relational practice that involves a heightened sense of touch and sensitive mutual listening between the giver and the receiver, as they communicate their consent, trust, empathy and pleasure to each other. Discover what works for you and your partner/s.
