Tie With Tempo Regional Rope Weekend – Saturday Class
October 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm$40
Tempo (He/Him) is a traveling top who has visited different communities and different countries to learn from the resident experts and masters of different journeys of kink. He takes what he learns to bring back to his present home community in Boise, ID, where he hosts Boise Rope Jam. He primarily seeks out rope instructors to help guide him on his journey for rope mastery. True to his name, much of his play involves weaving music into his scenes.
Whether it is occupational- or kink-related, his true calling is teaching. Outside the kink community, Tempo teaches for a regionally accredited college, supervises and trains instructors, and manages the school’s curriculum. Inside the community, he is often found serving whatever city he finds himself in as an instructor, a volunteer, a dungeon monitor, medical staff, or consent incident responder.
Cost: $40 per couple, maximum 16 couples, 2 x couple scholarships available for people with financial hardship and/or from marginalized communities.

Day 1 Schedule: 9am-6pm (1hr lunch)
Rope Foundations – In a house-building analogy, when you build a house, you always start with a foundation. The wonderful thing about foundations in rope is that you use it every time you pick up rope. This class, ROPE 101, starts with a lecture on rope vocabulary, materials, basic anatomy and physiology, and safety concerns. The class then moves into a hands-on workshop.
Connection in Bondage – Continuing with the house analogy, once you have a solid foundation, you are then able to build the framework that CONNECTS any foundation. This workshop, ROPE 102, starts with a discussion on “Why we tie?”, which explores the concepts of mood and connection between ourselves and our partners. We then move into a hands-on portion where we further explore mood and connection while adding techniques in tension and flow to enhance and deepen the experience.
Take Your Positions: Rope Harnessing – In the ROPE 100 series, we developed foundations in rope bondage. This class is the first class of ROPE 200 series, Harnessing and Groundwork, where we take what we learned in foundations and start adding sequence and structure. This class will cover the common positions that many of the exotic harnesses are named after and the risks involved in tying these positions.
