Intensive workshop with Tamandua & Briki

Partial: pain and pleasure.

During this two-day face-to-face workshop, Tamandua and Briki will teach some of their favorite partial suspensions. Drawing on his vision of shibari as an erotic and sadomasochistic art, the bindings taught will focus on sensual beauty and the game of tormenting with the ropes.

When creating shapes in the partial suspensions, an attempt is made to play with the gravitational dynamics between the lines and the body, whose opposing forces are capable of creating support and stress, depending on the balance of the tie, often resulting in a situation of predicament towards the tied person.

What you will learn in this workshop:

  • How to configure the different restraints to restrain the body in the desired posture.
  • Understand how to carefully balance suspension load to control tie intensity.
  • Understand the difference between the pressure of the strings on the body and postural stress as a means of storm and torture.
  • Guidance and advice made the riggers and models of how to navigate in this type of bindings and Shibari style with the approach of Tamandua and Briki.

Horizontal bamboos will be used as suspension points. TK / Takate Kote type torso ties and other options will be taught during class.

What do you need to bring:

At least one pack of 7 jute / hemp strings of the same size and 2-3 strings of smaller sizes.

1-2 pieces of medium / large size fabric to use as gags.

Prerequisites for people tying:

It is necessary to know how the suspension lines are made and how to anchor them to the harnesses they use.

You must also know at least one type of closure in bamboo and another in the bight / anchor of the suspension line.

Knowing how to tie with ease some type of Takate Kote in which your partner feels very good.

All these skills should have been learned with an instructor in person, or have received feedback from an instructor before attending this intensive workshop.

Prerequisites for those who are coffins and for the couple as a whole:

Couples should have prior experience tying together, including practice with Takate Kotes.

Both should be aware and knowledgeable about the risks of nerve compression when doing Shibari and know how to recognize the signs of nerve compression when they occur.

If the Takate Kote does not fit the model well due to anatomy and injury, please make sure you have enough experience tying other harnesses on the torso so that the suspension line can be anchored to the back.
