November - Making Connections With Rope

November Education: Making Connections with Rope

Led by Zaide and Marebare

Tuesday November 12th from 7pm-9pm

LLACE 1414 21st Street

Making Connections with Rope is a class for beginners to advanced riggers and rope bottoms who want to learn how to use rope in a more connected fashion.  In this class you will learn how rope and the ties we learn can be used to connect partners both emotionally and physically.  The emphasis of this class will not be specific ties, but on the connections we can make using rope as a medium.
 
Zaide and Marebare are a married couple that have been tying together for 7 years.  
 
Zaide (He/Him) is Kink and BDSM instructor who has been teaching classes in and around Sacramento.  Formerly a Licensed Paramedic and Instructor trainer he has certified thousands of students in life saving skills.  As a high angle rope rescue technician he used rope to save people from dangerous situations.  Turning those skills to kink he has taught classes for Sacramento’s Rope and Coffee group for 10 years as well as offered specialized classes in Fire, Kinky First Aid, and Breath Play.  Zaide voluntarily practices the consent foundations laid out in the Kink Educators Code of Conduct and has an accountability circle available.  IG: @ZaideZander Twitter: @ZaideZander Fetlife: http://fetlife.com/Zaide

She is a staff member of Rope and Coffee.  She is a rope switch that enjoys topping, bottoming, and self-ties.  Fetlife: http://fetlife.com/Marebare

In this class the basics of rope safety and consent will be covered, but it will not be comprehensive.  The class will cover how rope can be used as a tool to connect with your partner and there will be a couple of exercises to demonstrate this.  After the exercises there will be collaborative time in which Zaide and Marebare will be available to answer questions.

It is recommended that you wear clothes that are comfortable to tie in.  Please bring two ~30ft pieces of rope.  There will have rope to borrow if you don’t have your own.  

This space is intended for and will be held for QLAS members, pledges, and LGBTQIA+ individuals. We will not be inspecting identities, however respectful, non-discriminatory, consent based behavior is required for attendance/participation.
