LA Rope and Threshold: Diamonds are a Bottom’s Best Friend
April 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The hishi or diamond pattern is an important element in kinbaku. In this class we will trace its history back to some early hojojutsu ties before discussing how the diamond pattern was modified for effective kinbaku.
In this class we will discuss how hishi patterns can be used as a basic pattern for body harnesses as well as how you can use hishi patterns to add decorative elements to other ties. Breaking down the actual pattern to understand what it is doing, how it affects the sensations of the tie, and how it creates a unique aesthetic will provide some insight into why this is a very popular pattern for kinbaku.
This is primarily a hands on class, so bring lots of rope and someone to tie or tie with!
