This class is a deep dive into friction study in Shibari, and Pauline will explore its theoretical and practical understanding from the simplest to the most complex types of friction and other equally important fundamental base techniques. This class is full of hands-on exercises accompanied with step by step guidance.
29th June 12:00-13:30 CEST/GMT+ (Spain time)
What you will learn:
• Counter tensions, how they work structurally, and how to use them at different steps.
• A formulation of how to create semi-complex frictions (nodome/Munter Hitch, uranodome/Reverse Munter Hitch and all other possibilities).
• Complex friction systems; X friction, L friction, Half Moon friction, and Infinite friction.
• Takedome/Half Hitch, Yuki knot/Half Hitch on a Bight, Hojo cuff/Inline cuff, Kannukis/Cinches, and examples when it is most useful to tie them.
• From simple to more complex ways of joining one rope to another. • Hair ties, fabrics, and other objects starting from the bight or from the tail leftover rope.
• Single column and double column with a Musubime/Square knot (or Reef knot), with the Granny knot, the Somerville Bowline knot, and the Quick Release Somerville Bowline knot.
All the practical exercises will be shown in a variety of ways. Those examples are for practice to help improve the technical skills and understanding of the technique explained.
This class is not suitable for total beginners, you should know before attending this practical class the base knowledge below.
• Practical communication skills for negotiation and consent in Shibari.
• Understand safety keys to minimize accidents and damages while tying/being tied.
• Anatomy knowledge about the tied-up body and how to recognize signs of common risks.
• How to tie a single-column tie and double-column tie at least with a Somerville bowline knot.
• Minimal flow exercises and body handling.
In this class, we will not teach a step-by-step how to tie a single & double column from scratch but we will show how to tie each different knot applied to them.
We recommend you attend this class together with the Shibari Intro (22nd June) which is the introduction to Shibari and will be shown step by step and fundamental concepts for those who have no or very little knowledge for a more complete program of study.
We offer a package with a discounted price if you join both classes.
This class is ideal for anyone who wants to learn Shibari from its basic concepts.
The content and exercises shown are suitable for both partnered people and individuals.
• You will need your own ropes and safety cutting tools. Ropes should be made of jute or hemp, from 7 to 8 meters long and from 5 to 6 millimeters thick.
• Something to make notes.
• Class recording will be available for 15 days after it's post-produced and sent out via email, the post-production might take several days to be done, so please be patient. Make sure your email is correct!!!
• Only Pauline's camera will be recorded.
• This class is not intended to be followed along but we recommend attending live to ask questions and more info requests.
