What We Do and How This Works

In-Person Instruction

  • Most of our work revolves around our Foundations series of courses. These are in-person, multi-class courses that help tops and bottoms gain the skills and understanding of the fundamentals of rope bondage in floor work and partial and full suspension. These courses are offered in the spring and fall of each year near Richmond, VA (USA).
  • We also run various in-person workshops at different points throughout the year. These are not offered on any set schedule and depend greatly on the interests and readiness of local practitioners. These usually occur in Richmond, VA as well, though we sometimes run these in different locations.
  • Finally, we do offer private instruction for those for whom our courses and workshops aren’t an option. Private instruction is always conducted at our private rope studio near Richmond, VA.

Online Instruction

We make some of our content available for study online. However, online instruction is not our primary goal. Instead, we hope that our in-person instruction will help prepare participants to take better advantage of the many other great resources designed for online instruction. We do make some of our content available online in the hopes that it will be helpful to others, but our focus remains on in-person instruction.

While all of our offerings on this site correspond to in-person instruction, we do make the courses and workshops below available online. These were originally designed for in-person instruction, but we have tried to adapt them to make them useful online.

Foundations Series of Courses

The courses below make up our “core curriculum” for rope study, which we call the “Foundations.” Where possible, we would recommend people take these courses in order, as each course builds on the one before it. The extended time available in a course allows for more in-depth study and more individual attention. Learn more about the Foundations Series here.

101 is offered online and supplemented by in-person mini courses throughout the year. 201, 301, and 401 are typically offered in the fall and spring.

Workshops

We provide a variety of workshops throughout the year, both locally and in other areas. Workshops typically “fill in the gaps” between courses, go into greater detail on something we address in our courses, or provide a “brief taste” of a concept or exercise from our courses.

Workshops do not have a set schedule, so it’s best to check the calendar and/or subscribe to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss anything.
