Rope 101

_Class Description_
Bring your rope to this easy, interactive, and fun class with tips and techniques that you can use to tie folks from day 1 to day 3651. We’ll dive into how to get started for a successful, safe, rope scene, and discuss different types of rope and care for your rope bottoms. Plus, you’ll have a hands-on opportunity to learn simple ties useful for wrists, ankles and harnesses that when combined, will give you the means to perform a basic hogtie and so much more.

_Class Materials_
If you are able, bring one 30’ length of rope to practice with.
