About the event

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

During the workshop we start with a short introduction about the origins of shibari / kinbaku

before we move on to the practical part. It explains a lot of techniques and clarifies why we do

certain things in a certain way.

The workshop itself consists of the following parts:

  • Discussing different materials for tying and their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Ensure physical, mental and emotional safety during a session/game.
  • Learning two basic knots and frictions. Aswell as basic pattern that can be applied for both upper and lower body.(chest and leg).
  • How to strengthen and deepen the connection between you and your partner through different
  • exercises.

After the workshop you will have gained enough knowledge to experiment safely at home. Shibari can be applied with different intentions. Some people experience it as meditative, soothing or protective. Others feel power, sensuality or eroticism. Multiple experiences can also take place at the same time.

During the workshop I like to keep it open about what people are looking for. I see this as a safe space where, if desired, we can discuss openly and in a respectful manner what attracts us, what we want to learn and/or experience. All emotions and feelings are allowed. Feel free to switch roles when your attending the workshop together with a partner if that’s what you both

desire.

ABOUT THE EXPERT

Natsumi Scarlett is known for her theatrical, intense and sensual shibari performances, inspired by the ancient form of Japanese ropetying, often intertwined with elements from nature.

Besides being an (international) performer she also teaches workshops and provides one-on-one sessions for those who wolud like to get tied and experience shibari in a safe and caring way.

Her ' Shibari Experience ' is often featured at different fetish- and kink events where you can visit her for a short introduction session and all your questions about shibari and kinbaku.

IMPORTANT INFO

Bringing your own ropes is of course allowed. Consider at least 3 pieces of 7.5 – 8 mtrs per

rope. If you don't have your own ropes, please let me know and i will provide you with enough

rope to work with.

CLOTHING: Comfortable, warm and fitting. Consider an extra cardigan or sweater and a pair of

warm socks, in case you get a little colder in between. Layers work best.

You can attend this workshop on your own but if you decide to come with a partner it doesn’t

mean you have to be involved in a romantic relationship. Many people bring a good friend.

More important is that you are both interested and feel comfortable with each other.
