NYC rope bondage workshops

Anti-classist rope classes

My semi-private Rope Thing workshop meets once or twice a month in Brooklyn, with the beginner class on the first Saturday, and the intermediate/advanced classes on the third Saturday. Email erinhoudini@erinhoudini.com if you're interested in attending the next class, or if you'd like to be on the mailing list. Admission is by sliding scale donation, so only pay what you can afford or what you think the class is worth!

Private rope lessons

From basics to suspension, I offer private rope lessons in a safe, comfortable, and intimate environment. Starting at $100, each class lasts approximately 2 hours and is tailored specifically to your needs. No need to bring anything, as I have rope, accessories, and even demo bottoms available for borrowing.

The practical restraint curriculum

Erin's rope classes focus on teaching an intuitive, flexible, and consistent system of concepts that can easily be applied to a variety of bondage positions, body types, and learning styles. Through understanding practical restraint, students quickly build a solid skill foundation with the confidence to improvise and experiment on their own. Content is never strictly limited to the curriculum, always tailored to students' needs, and everything is hands-on, with plenty of rope on hand for students to borrow or purchase.
