honey_bare Self-Suspension Intensive at ROPECRAFT San Antonio
This Ropecraft, honey_bare will be holding an intimate, full-day intensive for lovers of self-bondage and self-suspension. Intended for intermediate self-tyers and riggers, this series of classes will structure and strengthen your self-ties and harnesses, cover safety and special techniques for self-suspension, and have everyone in the air by the day's end. honey will also discuss and demo the choices that can be made about the ties, rigging and body positioning that can make a self-suspension more or less sustainable, and make an experience more or less dynamic.
All students should come prepared with experience tying single- and double-column ties, as well as significant knowledge of rope handling and tension. Though we will start from early stages of self-tying and basics for suspension, this is not a class for beginners. Each student will need at least 8 pieces of rope, 26 ft or longer, as well as hardware for suspension (ring, carabiners, etc).
This full day of intensive learning will end with a discussion/skill share and time for Q&A. There will be a break to eat lunch.
