Kinbaku Weekend Intensive - with Tamandua Kinbaku

The weekend of 22.–24. July Tamandua will visit Reykjavik to teach a workshop aimed at kinbaku students who want to work more with their suspension experience.

He will teach a mix of light and challenging ways of tying based on some of his currently most frequently used ties.



 

Saturday 23.July
& Sunday 24. July

11:00–18:00

Price is per tying PAIR
There are only 8 spots available.

Friday evening will be a preperational workshop that we recommend to attend to get a head start.

 

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Plan for each day:

- Introduction

- Guided exercise
- Hands-in-front harness pattern (Saturday)
- Takate-Kote harness pattern (Sunday)

- Lunchbreak

- 1. (Partial) Suspension Shape (using the harness)

- 2. Minimalstic/less challenging (Partial) Suspension Shape


Each day will start with a guided improvisation-based exercise.

This gives us time to bond with our partner and rope, while practicing what can be described as some of the more subtle, or intuitive skills relating to our tying.


Before the lunch break these will be a pattern run through and technical practice of a suspendable harness;  Tamanduas hands-in-front on day 1 and his preferred way to tie takate kote on day 2.


In the afternoon we work on a more complex full suspension shape using the harness from earlier. As this part requires certain level of commitment from both rigger and model, and can be more challenging, most of the afternoon will be put aside to work through it.

To contrast the bigger ontaking of the day there will also be opportunity to finish the day with a more straight forward, minimalist tie.

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


Requirements:


The level is suitable for people of intermediate experience and up, who have received tuition in basic suspension techniques prior to the workshop.

Both riggers and models need to know how to recognise signs of nerve damage starting and how to avoid it.

As well as understanding how to make and lock suspension lines safely.


If you are unsure about your skill level and whether this workshop is suitable for you, please contact Tamandua or Spektrum Reykjavik with your questions.

We may advice on certain preparatory practice or tuition before attending if needed - but please don´t feel discouraged!

Just ask us and we'll prepare you!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––




What to bring:



8 regular long ropes
and 2-4 shorter bits of various length (you will need also the short bits!). 

Cloth to use as blindfold.



It is possible to do the ties on either single point or bamboo.
Please let us know which one you prefer and have experience with.


If tying on single point, bring carabiners or ring and carabiners.

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."
