Shibari Rope Jam | LGBTQIA+ Only – Beginner Friendly

Embodiment Rope Space at its core, and as part of our ethos, is a queer first space for rope, Shibari, and education. Within the framework of our space’s identity, we are committed to acknowledging our responsibility in South Africa by enhancing accessibility for individuals within and around our community.

Absolute beginners and experienced rope practitioners are welcome, as long as you identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community when attending our LGBTQIA+ Jams. Rope Jams are spaces where you can come and practice Shibari in a peer-to-peer setting. Switching is allowed and encouraged. In this jam we will have some rope instruction in the first hour, thereafter the floor will be open for peer-to-peer learning and having fun together. Any skill levels are welcome. If you do not have a partner(s) to attend with, you may have to self-tie or enquire with other participants to pair up. Class rope will be available for use for free on the day if you do not have your own rope.

There will be beginner tuition for basic knots and space for experienced folks to tie if they do not want to participate in the tuition component. We encourage attendees to get input on their technique from more experienced riggers and bottoms. 

Events start promptly at 19:00. Please DM us via Instagram if you are running late.Doors open at 18:40 and are closed at 19:05. We will be strict about this because late-coming can be very disruptive to those in the space. Pre-booking is essential (cash on the night is available by arrangement via Instagram DM). Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival.
