Description

So what is a Rope Practice & Instruction Event??

Rope Practice and Instruction time is designed to allow you to learn about shibari/rope bondage and take advantage of a space to practice rope, to share tips, pointers, and different styles of tying. These events are open to anyone and a great place to focus on furthering your skills.

This is a practice for both newbies and experienced Top/bottoms alike!
• An open practice for experienced community members
• Beginning instruction/introduction to rope for newbies and those new to our group
• Additional instruction will be available throughout the entire event

If you are new to our group then you must go through our Safety & Introduction Class, which is taught at this event. This class is designed to help you learn about rope and see the steps it takes to join the San Diego rope community and ensure everyone in attendance has been through a class on rope safety, etiquette, and negotiation.

Class is taught by SirKnottyDan who has been teaching for over 3 years and has been a student of national and international instructors. Classes are engaging and fun with an emphasis on education and safety.

This event is an active participation class. It is not an event for people to simply come and watch, if you are there you are there to learn. Anyone exhibiting behavior that violates our rules will be escorted out immediately.

Class starts at the beginning of the event, **if you are late and have not taken the class there is a chance you will not be allowed to participate.** You only have to take the Safety & Introduction Class once, then you are free to participate at future events.

Water and snacks will be provided.

Please read our rules and etiquette page on our website.

Dress code: Bondage-friendly clothing is suggested (i.e. fitted clothing, bras without underwires). All persons may be topless but must remain out of public view and be inside the building.

FAQs

Q. What's the refund policy?

Refunds will be given for cancellations made by midnight on the Tuesday before the event. After this time, due to our fixed costs for the event, refunds can only be given if another couple/person can fill the spot.

Q: What is Shibari?

A: Shibari, also known as Kinbaku, is an art form using learned skills to perform sensual, dramatic, and erotic rope bondage. Traditional shibari has its origins in Japan. Shibari is a style of rope art, it is not the only style.

Q: Will the brewery be serving beer?

A: No. Arcana is closed. This is a private event we are simply renting floor space to provide a place for rope to occur in north county SD! No alcohol or any other mind altering substance is allowed at any All Tied Up events. We recommend that you visit Arcana during normal business hours.

Q: Is rope safe?

A: Beginning rope work under the direction of an All Tied Up instructor is generally a very safe and fun activity. Rope play in general is considered “edge play,” which means you have the potential to be hurt. We will cover most of the safety aspects of rope during the introductory class. We strive to create a safe and fun environment, but we make no guarantees that it is safe to do rope work.

Q: What is the environment at a Rope Practice & Instruction event?

A: To the surprise of many first time attendees, the events are very laid back and friendly. We work to create a welcoming environment in which people can share and experience rope safely. Check out our website for more information.

Q: What is the dress code? See above.

A: This is a private event. There is no requirement for anyone to undress; please only do what feels comfortable! If you want to remain clothed, we strongly recommend that women do not wear a bra with an underwire. We recommend wearing tight-fitting clothes that are cool and comfortable — something that you might wear to a yoga class, for example. (Some attendees may choose to undress)

Q: What is it like to be tied?

A: Each experience is unique to the individual, however many tell us that it feels like a good hug or a massage. More advanced experiences can lead to ties that are beautifully decorative, painfully torturous, tightly bound, and/or put you in a creative predicament.

Q: What is it like to tie?

A: As you begin to tie you will find that your focus is on safety, proper execution, and placement. You may feel like you are going through a series of steps in order to achieve a particular outcome. Over time you will find that safety will ALWAYS be a concern, but you will be able to improve your flow and control.

Q: What do I need to do to come to an event?

A: If this is your first time, we recommend that you contact us and let us know you are interested. We can then look for you at the event check-in and help you get started! Our website also has helpful information.

Q: Can I just watch?

A: Yes, voyeurism is an acceptable action during an event, provided you are not interrupting or disturbing others. Many new attendees do spend time watching the amazing ties that are done by the more experienced Riggers and bottoms in our group. This is a good way to learn too!

Q: Is there food?

A: We provide light snacks, water, and juice drinks for Rope Practice & Instruction events.

Q: What about consent?

A: In the rope community, and in all of the kink community, consent is one of the primary matters to consider and receive PRIOR to doing ANYTHING with ANYONE. Make no assumptions; do not touch anyone without their permission. Even before you hug someone you should ask, “May I hug you?” If you receive a “Yes!” then you have consent. A “No!” means . . . NO!

At All Tied Up events words like, “stop,” “quit,” “no,” etc. . . . are all taken very seriously. If anyone is saying these words we expect the Top to stop and respect the request of the bottom. Any violation of this will result in immediate ejection from the event.

We are very safety oriented and desire to have a safe place for our attendees.
