About the Event

LETO VARIATIONS

We all know and love the original Leto Harness, that woven hip harness that taught so many of us how to keep even tension. Like many great harnesses, it gets used so much by so many which leads us to put our own spins on the original. That's where this class comes in.

In this class, you will learn 3 versions of the Leto: the original, a revision with an alternative start and finish, and Serafina's variation she calls Leto Longjohns. Class structure will include demo, tie along, and plenty of free time to practice. You will also learn how this harness shines, and also how it fails. 

Who is this class for?

This class is suitable for both tying pairs and self tyers of all levels. If you know the prerequisites, you should have no problem keeping up. The Longjohn variations may be a challenge to self tie but it's doable if you are up for the challenge.

Prerequisites

Tops should know the Somerville bowline and basic knowledge of half hitches. 

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.
