About the Event

HEARTS, STARS, & HORSESHOES 

Photo-Ready Shinju Variations 

A Shinju is a two band, arms free chest harness that is simplicity at its finest. A simple start that makes for a great canvas to design to your taste. 

In this class, you will learn how to tie a basic shinju. From there, we will learn how to modify it to create the Heart Harness 💖, the pentagram harness ⭐️, and the Sweatheart Harness 🧲. These are not intended for suspension but rather are decorative alternatives to the basic Shinju. Class structure will include demo, tie along, and plenty of free time to practice. You will learn how the harness shines and more importantly, how it fails. 

Who is this class for?

This class is suitable for tying pairs of all levels. If you know the prerequisites, you should have no problem keeping up. If you do not know the prerequisites, it will add to a challenge but should still be simple enough to keep up. It is possible to self tie but it is certainly a challenge. Self tyers are welcome but there will not be a significant amount of self tie information as this is more focused on tying pairs. 

Prerequisites

Tops should know the Somerville bowline, half hitches, and X or L frictions. 

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Serafina 

Fina (She/Her) Switch, Rope Human, Positivity Enthusiast, NEMA Mentor Coordinator Serafina is an introductory level, safety-forward educator in Central Connecticut. She feels the best part of teaching is sharing the excitement of discovery and instilling confidence in those who may be shy or tentative. Her teaching style starts at a beginner level with heavy emphasis on safety and effective negotiation. Entering Fetlandia in August 2017, she wanted to learn everything she could about all the wonderful new activities she was seeing around her. That's when the "Education Frenzy" began, attending countless classes and intensives. What inspires Serafina most is creative collaboration, visual shapes and colors, combining mediums and passions, and finding creative solutions around physical limitations.

SubtleRebellion

Nikki (She/her) is an all around Switch, Rope enthusiast, and NEMA mentor. Nikki has explored and discovered much about her kink, queer, and polyamorous self; and as a switch, she has had the pleasure of learning from both sides of the slash. Her first dive into getting involved in communities started early in her exploration in 2018 and rope was her initial draw to the lifestyle. Nikki wants to share her passion for rope with others with education focused on the fundamentals and safety. She is drawn to rope due to the extensive variety of experiences it can provide. Both as a top and bottom she enjoys the creative shapes, challenges, and connections it brings, and wants to educate and encourage others to find what they love about it as well.
