Shibari Workshop

10th October 2022

Event Full Details:

Are you curious about exploring kink and rope tying in a conscious and inclusive environment?

About this event

The LGBT Foundation will be hosting a special event with The Kinky Classroom to introduce you to the art of Shibari - Japanese rope bondage.

Your hosts, Lex and Matt, will guide you through:

•What makes something “conscious kink” and how to navigate the basics of consent and communication

•The evolution of Shibari from its origins to modern-day practice

•Using rope creatively for different purposes

•Rope safety

•Getting started with tying

Their aim is to provide a friendly, non-intimidating environment that welcomes everyone, regardless of whether you have experience with kink or Shibari.

What to expect:

The teaching will last for roughly two hours and will include a mixture of learning through discussion, theory, demonstrations, and hands-on practice (self-tying and with a partner).

Rope for practice during the workshop will be provided by us so you don't need to bring any along unless you'd like to.

You can come alone or with a partner, a lover, a friend, or a willing practice partner. We will do all we can to ensure everyone has someone to practice with!

About your facilitators:

Lex (they/them) is a full-time Pleasure Coach who loves nothing more than creating permissive spaces in which people can explore the themes of POWER, PLEASURE, and PLAY.

In addition to their professional training as a Conscious Kink practitioner, Certified Dominatrix, Sexological Bodyworker, and Embodied Facilitator, Lex draws upon 20 ish years of (good, bad, and ugly) experiences of navigating life as a genderqueer, queer, kinky, and non-monogamous person! Their purpose is to help others to find acceptance of who they are through curiosity and compassion so that we can all live our most fulfilling lives. You can see more about their work at www.pleasurerebels.com

Matt (he/him) balances his professional career with an avid passion for exploring kink and sexuality. His journey into the fascinating world of BDSM began when he discovered Shibari around 6 years ago.

Alongside his ongoing study of the technique and philosophy of the art, he has been enthusiastically passing on his expertise through one-to-one sessions and delivering rope workshops for groups. He is very actively involved in the kink scene and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from this, as well as a gift for helping people open up to their hidden desires in a safe and well-informed way.
