A Foundations Class

Cost: Suggested donation of $10-$15

Dress code: Whatever makes you feel comfortable. Street wear before entering

Doors open 6:30-7 sharp, class starts promptly at 7:00

Class Description:
Whether picking up a cane for the first time or an old hand at Bastinado, this exciting and informative class, will introduce you to the fine art of caning; from its history in various cultures, to all sorts of interesting ways and places to cane - many of which will be demonstrated. You will also be provided plenty of time to work hands-on with direct instruction. This is a Foundations class and differs from the usual class in that the goal is to instruct you not only on the use, care and handling of a cane, but to give you the toolset to be able to walk into a public dungeon or private party and create a hot and satisfying scene from negotiation to scene management to aftercare. Whether you are just starting to explore an interest in canes or are already a dedicated fan, this class will probably teach you something you didn't know.

Presenter Bio:
James S. hails from New England where he and a close knit group of friends explored their kink and wound up building a DIY scene from the ground up. After moving to San Francisco, he stumbled upon a Foundations Munch and, excited by this glimpse of the Bay Area's vibrant kink and leather community, embraced it wholeheartedly, going on to explore leather history and traditions through Journey and LeatherQuest. He is a graduate of both those programs and currently serves as Headmaster for Foundations. While a fan of all sorts impact and tactile play whether using traditional tools, improv pervertables or his own hands, he is dedicated to the art of caning.
