Japanese Bondage - Master Class
The workshops are geared towards advanced riggers who would like to study Japanese bondage techniques (Shibari). To get full mileage from the hands-on parts be advised to bring your own rope partners. Beyond the purely technical aspects of the ties, Osada Steve will impart insights into the thinking processes of Japanese Shibari masters, and provide background information on the history and cultural reasons behind the use of rope in the modern S/M context.

A Japanese actress will be serving as demonstration model.
