The Widow Harness is a suspendable, highly sustainable arms-front chest harness that works amazingly well for a large variety of body types and flexibility levels.
In this class, we’ll discuss the various elements of the tie including the basic pattern, attachment and suspension applications, and nerve and safety issues. At the end of the class, those who feel comfortable with their work will have the opportunity to test it in the air.
This class is for students with a solid grasp on their fundamentals that can already tie a solid chest harness. The ability to tie a TK is not required, but is recommended as this tie borrows a number of elements from the TK.
The ability to suspend is not required for this class—there are plenty of ground/partial suspension applications of this harness.
- Students will need two to two and a half lengths of 8m/30ft rope, with natural fiber being strongly recommended.
- Students will also need a scarf or tenugui 36”-45” in length.
- Students that wish to test their harness in the air should bring appropriate suspension hardware.
- Students must also bring a cutting tool that they are comfortable with.
