It ain’t nothing but a chicken wing!”This class is for rope bottoms and tops that know basic safety knowledge and feel comfortable with partial suspensions. They should bring a playful attitude and something to take notes.mean rope, partial suspension, suspension, intermediate, advanced

Distinctly Emotional: Creating Dynamic Sceneswith SirKnottyDanAre you or your partner stuck doing the same thing every time you tie?

Are you lacking creativity and inspiration? Stuck in a rut?

Do you want to know the SECRET to taking your partner on a journey, how to create intimacy, excitement, and adventure that makes them weak in the knees and longing for more?

This class is about creating a scene that doesn't just put rope on a body, it shows you how to think about all of the elements that create a dynamic scene. We will break down the SEVEN PILLARS of SCENE DEVELOPMENT and give you detailed information on what each part entails.

We will discuss how to use one of the most overlooked tools in your toolbox, one that most people fail to see. This tool can help you to interact with your partner, increase intimacy and really convey to your partner that you are in charge.

Additionally, we will break down the contrasting emotions that can be invoked during a tie and how to know you are delivering the goods.
No previous skills or knowledge are necessary to enjoy this class. It is for anyone who wants to create dynamic scenes with emotional intention and is for both tops and bottoms. Bring a notepad and a writing implement. There will be a lot of content shared in a very short amount of time.scenes, emotional intent, planning, connection, play
Exposure and Closurewith Lief and IcarusHave you looked at a photo of a person exposed in rope? Have you wanted to get someone to that vulnerable spot or how it must feel like to be that vulnerable? In this class we will explore the physical and psychological ins and outs of exposure rope on the ground. How to tie exposing rope, how can we create these spaces of trust, and how can we begin to open up to more intense scenes of exposure. And once we have taken someone apart, how do we put them back together? In this class we will also discuss ways of aftercare and healing for exposure rope.Materials needed: Rope - 8 to 12 hanks of jute or hemp. Please do not bring any suspension gear, this intensive will be all floor work. Jute is the best for working with clothes and hemp as a close second. You can use synthetic fiber ropes however, I cannot vouch for how it will hold with clothing. Clothes - Costume changes will be encouraged as we explore exposure during the intensive. Please have nearby anything like shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, blazers,or lingerie that you can part with if ripped or cut. Accessories such as shoes, scarves, bandanas, panty hose, etc. are welcome too. The more you bring, the more we can play with. Cutting Tool - Make sure you bring a cutting tool for safety. We will be checking at the beginning of class to make sure everyone has one. If you do not have a cutting tool, you will not be able to participate in the exercises.

The Concept of Playwith Lief and IcarusRope is hard. Rope makes our brains think so much. We focus so much on the tie that we forget how to be playful in rope. We get caught up in patterns and structure that we forget about discovery and collaboration. In this class we will learn rope all over again. No rules. Like a preschooler with a box of crayons we are going to color outside the lines. We are going to explore ways to incorporate play back into our rope so that we can connect our partners in the moments. And bottoms we will learn to to influence that fun and collaborate with our partners to tie our bodies in new and exciting ways. After leaving this class rope will make you smile rather than make you frustrated.
Materials needed: Rope -at least 4 hanks of rope, material doesn’t matter. Cutting Tool - Make sure you bring a cutting tool for safety. We will be checking at the beginning of class to make sure everyone has one. If you do not have a cutting tool, you will not be able to participate in the exercises. DO NOT COME TO CLASS WITHOUT THIS. In order to get the most out of this class and tie-along, you'll need to know a non-collapsing single column tie or two! play, connection, tie-along
