Rope Jam | Slow Jam - Beginner Friendly
Sat Dec 2, 15:00 - Sat Dec 2, 18:00
Embodiment Rope Space, Salt River
Slow Jam - Beginner Friendly
We are hosting our first Saturday rope jam - to get a taste of rope without any pressure! This will be a three (3) hour jam, that's why we are taking it slow.
Absolute beginners and experienced rope practitioners are welcome at this jam. These jams are generally without a pre-defined theme and are the perfect space to come no matter your skill level (this means of course no prior experience with rope required).
Rope jams are focused on creating a safe and educational space to explore rope among our space holders and peers which isn't tuition-based. This means lower commitment while you figure out what rope is for you and how you would like to progress with it, if at all. We also hope to provide a calm and social space where you can have fun in a low-pressure environment.
There may be some beginner tuition for basic knots and space for experienced folks to tie if they do not want to participate in the tuition component, just ask our team if you need any help. We encourage attendees to get input on their technique from more experienced riggers and bottoms.
Embodiment Rope Space is a welcoming and safe(r) space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We practice rope communally and host occasional workshops for upskilling the community. Rope is never safe, there are only ways to do it more safely.
Absolute beginners and experienced rope practitioners are welcome. Rope Jams are spaces where you can come and practice rope tying in a peer-to-peer setting. Singles, couples, throuples, etc. are all welcome. Switching is allowed and encouraged.
Events start promptly at 15:00. Please DM us via Instagram if you are running late. Doors open at 14:40 and are closed at 15:10. We will be strict about this because late-coming can be very disruptive to those in the space. Pre-booking is essential (cash on the day is available by arrangement via Instagram DM). Please have your tickets ready to be scanned on arrival.
We have limited treated rope from Sudo Jute for sale and safety shears. Non-alcoholic drinks (Coke, water, tea, coffee) will also be for sale.
Come dressed however you like - comfy, sexy, sporty, fetish. As long as your booty is covered, you are welcome here.
Embodiment Rope Space is the love child of a group of volunteers from different walks of life coming together to actualize something we think the world needs: a queer safe(r) space for exploring kink as a healing, connective force.

What is Shibari/Kinbaku/Bondage?
The art of binding the body of a consenting adult.
Is rope always sexual?
Rope has many benefits and practitioners outside of the sexual paradigm. For some, it is about pushing their bodies not unlike engaging in strenuous exercise or extreme sports. For some, it is a way to reclaim their agency after trauma. For some, it is a way to experience a connection with others without the scripts and expectations associated with genital contact. As long as what you are doing is consensual and intentional, we consider it healthy and valid.
What should I wear?
This is a friendly learning environment, not a sexual one, so crotches are to remain covered. Other than that, you are free to wear whatever you like. We find that it is easier to tie with minimal clothing or clothing that you can move in easily (leggings, shorts, etc.).
