As we hinted at before, we will be rigging in Riga, Latvia, at the end of June. Flame Hel has invited us for the last weekend of the month. I have to say, he sounds like an excellent host since we have been offered dungeon apartment with our own personal slave girl! We might not get the business class travel big company employees get in our line of work but I think I prefer our perks 😉
Here’s a brief synopsis of the schedule with prices:
The Pleasure of Rope, with Masterclass/demonstration €10 per person.
19:30 – 20:00 Meet & greet
20:00 – 21:30 Showing of The Pleasure of Rope, a documentary by Bob Bentley
21:30 – 22:00 Q&A
22:15 approx. Show/demo by Esinem & Nina Russ
Esinem and Nina’s Saturday and Sunday workshops
Our workshops will be for everyone regardless of experience as long as they own a set of ropes. Since Nina and I will both be teaching, we can tailor them to your skill level. Through our many hours of tuition and experiences developing our on-line school, ShibariClasses, our method of teaching has evolved way beyond ‘painting by numbers’. We will take you on a journey where you will also learn ‘the why behind the tie’. That is to say, we will bring an understanding of both the engineering, aesthetics and the intent behind the ties. You will be introduced to our unique ‘ingredients-based’ approach which de-mystifies seemingly complex ties and gives you the ability develop your creativity to produce your own ‘recipes’. This knowledge will bring an awareness to correct your own mistakes, improve and tie more safely.
