The Workshop

Level: Intermediate / strong intermediate, 
Prerequisite:

    rigger: You are confident with a gote, any style. A plus is knowing the RopeMarks style gote. You know how to safely perform a basic suspension. A plus is experience with dynamic suspensions and transitions.
    model: You are able to recognize and communicate good/bad bodily sensations and are familiar with the differences between nerve and circulation impingement. You are comfortable in a basic gote. A plus is experience being suspended in basic suspensions.

This is a full day workshop in which you will learn to do and be in dynamic suspensions. We will teach you the noble art of transitioning in suspensions. Suspensions in general, dynamic suspensions even more so, are never without risk. Our goal with this workshop is to provide you with the essential knowledge and create a safe, shared experience that will empower you to carry forward what you’ve learned once you return home. Therefore the emphasis will be on safety, technique and communication. If you have followed our previous workshop(s) before you will be refreshed, renewed and we will progress your skill for dynamic suspensions.

Within Japanese rope bondage the gote is generally at the heart of any suspension. In this workshop we will not only use gote’s but see how the gote is a classic part of Japanese rope bondage and kinbaku. This is the tradition RopeMarks teaches in, so we find it important to start with gote. During this brief start of the workshop we will use your skill in tying a gote and being in a gote to assess your general proficiency with Japanese rope bondage. As a famous kinbakushi once said: “kinbaku begins and ends with a gote.”

For this workshop you will be tying on bamboo and there are many ways to tie (off) uplines, but which way do you choose when and why? We’ll continue the workshop by taking you through various exercises to help you really understand this.

After this introduction we go through four full body dynamic suspensions during which we will shower you with a handful of smaller ties to have fun with during your suspensions and transitions.

From experience we know that not everybody will have the same proficiency with tying or being in rope. Therefore we designed this workshop so that each of the ties can be done at the level that you as a couple are or feel comfortable with. This might mean that sometimes you can follow the whole suspension sequence without a problem, whereas sometimes you might choose to only follow along during the first position(s). Either way your skill will be progressed to the next level.

To make sure you have to recommend skills and knowledge please consider following our suspensions #1.

  • Uplines for bamboo

Presenters

Who’s RopeMarks?

RopeMarks, also known as Bob Roos, is a Dutch rope artist who specializes in Japanese rope bondage, also known as shibari or kinbaku. Professionally he began studying and perfecting his craft in 1999, under the lineage of the late Akechi Denki (明智伝鬼) and Naka Akira (奈加あきら) in Japan. While RopeMarks’ work reflects the traditional techniques taught by these leading kinbakushi, he has also developed his own unique and distinct style.

RopeMarks is widely recognized as the foremost Dutch expert in Japanese rope bondage, and is highly respected in the global kinbaku community. He has taught workshops and classes around the world including, but not limited to, Europe, the United States, Russia and Japan. Using the name RopeMarks Ryū he provides real, fun, hands-on, courses, classes, lessons and workshops in Japanese rope bondage worldwide.

Who is Spring?

Spring is an enthusiastic Dutch rope bunny who loves intensity in every possible way.

Already at a young age Spring had kinky and BDSM fantasies that she started exploring in 2011. Rope fascinated her from the beginning and after her first experience she was hooked. She started experimenting with rope and BDSM in her private life and gradually moved towards experimenting and modeling in front of the the camera, satisfying her exhibisionistic streak.

As a rope bunny, Spring loves being seriously challenged. She experiences (slow) suffering as a sexy and sensual way to a deeper connection in which she can totally surrender. Apart from the physical interaction, she loves the impact of nonverbal communication.
