Attendance will be limited to 7 tying pairs.
About the Series
Learn the box tie with fuoco in this 6-week series that takes a bottom-centric approach to box tie education. Each tying pair will learn about the anatomy of box tie and how to tie the arms to the body in a way that best suits each anatomical form. We'll cover a variety of cinch modifications, third ropes appropriate for each box tie form, attachment points, and uplines.
Riggers will leave the series knowing one box tie pattern optimally-suited to their tying partner, as well as having been exposed to other patterns and the rationale for various modifications. Bottoms will leave with a more in-depth knowledge of their body in box tie, and the language to communicate with other tying partners the details of the harness that suits them best.
Tying pairs must commit to the series together. As we will not be learning one pattern or another, but rather learning to tie the best box tie for each bottom, it is imperative each duo attend the series together. In the instance that one partner can't make one of the nights due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance, it is preferable that the other partner come alone and take notes, but bringing a replacement partner isn't an acceptable option.
About the Presenter
fuoco began her rope journey as a bottom in Phoenix ten years ago and shortly thereafter moved to London, where much of her early rope learning happened. Upon moving back to the US, she began presenting at cons and intensives around the country sharing her love of rope. As an educator, she's decidedly non-dogmatic in her approach to teaching. Her classes aim to help bottoms to better understand their bodies in movement, and to offer riggers the knowledge to adapt their tying to the unique needs of their partners.
When she’s not doing rope, fuoco is a professional acrobat. Her dedicated study of the mechanics of the body make her especially interested in developing more comprehensive education for bottoms informed by these practices. She's also a leftist who believes that kink is inherently political. She strives to bring her politics, her values, and an accountability for those values into her teaching spaces.
