In control - Skills for effortless tying
with Tamandua Kinbaku


Whether choosing complexity or simplicity, we want to create something meaningful together when tying, and to feel in flow with our partner.


Whatever it is we aim to create, our technical abilities will always be a key factor for realising the intention of our tying. 


Rope it but a tool, but an important one to master well when used to bind human bodies.

In this evening workshop about rope handling we will learn about ways to work toward a goal of the rope being less of a hindrance and more of a familiar tool with which you can work seamlessly.



Tamandua will share some of his best tips and tricks based on observations made during his rich experience as a shibari instructor for how to become more fluent in rope as well as examples of exercises to include in your regular practice toward masterful tying.




Topics that will be introduced in this class:

- Grip and guiding of the rope

- Feeling & controlling tension

- Logic of how rope structures & patterns are built

- Basic principles of rope placement choices on the body

- Choices when finishing/locking off a tie based on safety, beauty or efficiency

- Body management & control while hands are busy holding rope



This class is appropriate for anyone who has already played around with rope and gained at least some basic experience.

Also more advanced practitioners, such as participants of the weekend intensive are encouraged to join in order to refine fundamentals before the weekend.

Requirements:

Anyone doing tying during the class should be so confident with making a single column tie (at least!) that it does not need to be figured out during the class.

If you cannot tie a single column without support you will run out of time needed during the actual exercises.

About the teacher:

Tamandua (he/him)

Tamandua is an incredibly skilled rope artist that combines sensitivity and sadism so beautifully.


He is a full time rope artist and kinbaku instructor based in Berlin with an exceptional sense for aesthetics and technique.


"I have a passionately sadistic streak and a deep love for the aesthetic realm of kinbaku.

Often tying in a way which can be challenging both for the one tying and the one in the ropes, my shibari usually demands a lot of technical clarity when in the role of a teacher. Despite this I believe that it is still important to also manage to leave room for personal adjustment and creativity.

For me, the core of kinbaku lies in the meeting between the aesthetic expression and the emotional or erotic intention of the practice.

And the more ones tying develop, the more seamlessly the parts can intermingle."
