Our dear friends at the Toronto Kinbaku Salon in Canada are currently 6 weeks deep into their second COVID lockdown, with no real end in sight. They have a beautiful Studio they rent, but paying the rent gets harder and harder every week that they are locked down.
Kazami-Ryu is a worldwide family, and we wanted to do something to help them out. So, we decided to Tie For Toronto!
Now we missed out on Rope-Centric in January because of COVID, but we can beat that virus and sneak in a bit of fun before the month ends, while helping our friends in Canada. So, we can think of no better way to ignore the reason for the Public Holiday than to spend some time with rope, with every cent being donated to the Toronto Kinbaku Salon.You buy your ticket, come along and have fun, we cover all the costs of the day (fees, GST, taxes, coffee, etc etc) and every cent goes to TKS.
So here’s the standard Rope-Centric blurb, same rules apply.
COVID safe practices will be in force as per government mandate on that date.
Rope-Centric is in the format of a Japanese style Rope Salon, hosted by a known rigger…in this case Miss Gen, who is the head of Kazami-Ryu Shibari in Australasia.
What this means is that there will be no formal teaching at Rope-Centric, it will be a place to come and enjoy using your rope, to play, to expand your knowledge in an informal and casual manner. It will be generally supervised by Miss Gen or Her appointees, although She may not be inside the studio the whole afternoon, she is allowed to have a cup of tea as well you know :). Miss Gen may choose to show a tie, and you will be welcome to ask advice of Her if you wish.
The Evil Girls HQ rope studio is a 40+ square meter purpose created rope space at our home in Shailer Park. It incorporates The EGHQ Matrix (#eghqmatrix), a purpose built, mind-bending 30 square meter box frame suitable for multiple simultaneous suspensions, pole ties and performances. Guests will have access to the rope studio, the large house verandah where coffee, tea and snacks will be available, and possibly the pool area in summer months (strictly supervised if for rope).
There is no dress code, it is a come as you are, casual afternoon…as we like to say, “A Lazy Sunday Afternoon With Rope”! Outdoor footwear is not permitted inside the rope studio, but must be worn outside at all times (ie no going back into the studio with dirty feet please). Slippers are permitted inside on the mats, but not on the Tatami. No food or drink (other than closed bottles) inside the studio. Being naked inside the Studio is acceptable, but please ensure you are clothed when outside or on the verandah.
All genders are welcome at Rope-Centric!
All bookings are in advance and we will be restricting numbers to 20 people, based on current COVID19 guidelines.
Entrance is a privilege, not a right. Anyone being a dick will be asked to leave without refund, and may not be allowed to return. All rope play is at the discretion of Miss Gen or Her appointees, and she may restrict or otherwise control any play inside the studio at Her/their discretion for safety or other reasons. But generally, tie within your skill level and there will be smiles all around :).
Come on along for ropey good times at Evil Girls HQ, and help out Toronto Kinbaku Salon at the same time!
(Tuesday) 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm(GMT+10:00)
