Part 6 of 8 Rope Series with Belle- Ties that aren’t TKS
Now that we’ve worked through the basic forms, we are going to move into some of the other commonly used forms in Japanese style rope bondage including strappado, teppou, and arms-front ties. This class will mainly focus on the technical aspects of these ties while pointing out the similarities to the ties that we’ve already learned in the series. These ties will give you more options for variation during play for creating other positions or working with people that have limited mobility in certain directions. If you have rope experience, you can take this class without having taken the previous workshop sessions with Belle.
Belle is a bright shining star of rope love, who helps those around her enjoy the pleasures of rope in a supportive, relaxed environment.

Rope 101 with Belle
This beginner level, hands-on class is designed for people with little to no rope background however others are welcome to attend and share their experiences. You will be amazed at the number of things that you can do with just a single knot and a couple of pieces of rope. We will be focusing on column ties and their uses, especially in the bedroom and in the dungeon. There will be particular emphasis placed on safety considerations, different types of rope and rope lengths along with how to choose what is right for you. We will also have a short discussion on different styles of bondage. This class is designed as a combination of discussion and hands-on with time to practice and ask questions at the end of the class. It is useful to bring a partner with you but it is not necessary as all of the ties we will be covering can be done on yourself. Please bring a couple of lengths of rope between 15 and 30 ft. long and a pair of safety shears if you have them. If not, the presenter will have rope for you to borrow for the duration of the class.
