Getting Knotty April Rope Practice

Getting Knotty is a quarterly rope practice and knowledge share hosted by members of Atlanta’s Men in Rope, Hitchin’ Bitches, Rope Bite Atlanta, Atlanta Leather Pride, & Southeast Black and Blue. We have joined forces to provide a safe space for all identities and orientations to participate together in Erotic Rope Arts regardless of your skill level.

Doors open at 12:30 for check-in. The event begins promptly at 1.

The event is 21+ and requires a $5 preregistration.

Follow the link below to preregister for the event.

Each class we will have introductory (101) and intermediate (201) lessons available along with open Jam space for general practice and light rope scening. Our jam space will have a handful of hard points available for those who know or are ready to learn suspension. During warmer months we may expand out onto the deck for more jam space.

April’s 201 will feature the Karada/Hishi Boxtie Harness as taught by our visiting presenter Running Aemok.

Meet our guest presenter for the 201 class sessions.
