Introduction to Shibari - Part 1 & 2

Get the feel of Japanese bondage and experience what Shibari aka Kinbaku is all about in this 2-lesson course at Shibari Lounge in Antwerp.

 

Marc BeShibari and Shibarista Jess will guide you in discovering the aesthetics and basic techniques of this intimate form of rope play.

After these two sessions you will be able to safely tie some basic patterns, with attention on technique and aesthetics but especially focusing on the experience you will have together with your (rope-) partner.

 

In part 1 you will learn:

 

  • a bit about the origins of Shibari/Kinbaku

  • safety aspects when tying

  • about aspects of different types of rope

  • to negotiate prior to starting your play

  • how to do a basic (wrist) tie (‘single column tie’)

  • the use of tension, contra-tension

  • to communicate and interact with your partner while tying

  • interaction with one rope - ichinawa

  • some patterns with one rope like a simple version of shinju, matanawa

In part 2 you will learn:

  • answers & refresh of part 1

  • to tie two limbs together ('two column tie') and some practical examples

  • frictions

  • to join two ropes

  • to attach your rope to a pole/bed frame/ table leg...

  • some basic shibari patterns (futomomo, agura, hishi)

  • to play with intention and interaction
