Beginner Bondage and Tie-Up Improvisation

with Ann Antidote

This workshop is a basic introduction to rope bondage for absolute or near beginners, but with a greater emphasis on hands-on practice. We’ll talk about safety, and you’ll learn some basic knots and techniques, which – combined with your own imagination – will allow you to experiment and improvise. This is also a great refresher course for people who’ve already learned the basic knots, but haven’t had much time to practice them.

Some rope provided, but you can also bring/buy your own.

All genders welcome.

Ann Antidote is an autodidact DIY artist, active in the fields of bondage, video, performance and landscape art. She has been active in anti-discrimination work and in the promotion of polyamorous, queer and sex-positive lifestyles as options worthy of respect. This permeates her work, which includes workshops and talks, in Berlin and beyond.
