Rope Made Easy with Sir Wieland
Wednesday, March 25, 8:30 pm

This entertaining, hands-on class is for those who say they can’t tie knots and that rope takes too long. Find out how easy rope can be!

We will be showing you how to tie a simple cuff (bolla bolla), a couple of arm ties, a basic chest tie, and a simple karada (body tie). With these concepts, you can be creative and develop your own ties and styles. We will talk briefly about safety, materials, and lengths, and then quickly get the rope in your hands. If you are unpartnered, we will pair people up so everyone gets a chance to tie. Tighter fitting clothing will make tying easier. If you normally wear a bra, a thinner (non underwire) bra or no bra is best for feeling the tie.

If you have your own rope, bring two 20-30 ft pieces. The instructor will also bring some rope for folks to use. After learning a few ties, you will have a better idea of the lengths you may want to have. The Tool Shed has a selection of rope for purchase.

$15 per person or $25 per couple. Register here.
