Needles 101

Class Description:
In this class you will learn the basics of what to keep in a simple needle kit, safety, and how to start poking people! Play piercing doesn’t need to be intimidating. Ashleybird breaks it down in ways that are fun, entertaining, easy to understand, and most importantly – SAFE. She’ll show you some of her favorite spots to pierce, ways to pierce, how to elicit the type of reaction you want from your bottom, and simple things to add to needles to make them spectacular.

Presenter Bio:
Ashleybird has been kicking around (literally) the community since early 2007. A Primal Switch, her main fetishes are punching and kicking, CNC, knives, boots and all things stabby – needles and staples and sutures oh my! She also has a bit of a smartass side on both the top AND the bottom.

Ashleybird started her journey in Utah, where she graduated from the first Leather Quest class, The Forlorn Hope. She has taught locally in her native Utah and now in Denver (where she currently resides) as well as T.G.I.F. in California. In her spare time she loves to travel, read, camp, record hound, binge watch scary movies, and cross stitch.

Monday the 24th – Doors open at 6:30 (please join by then), class 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The online safety and privacy of our community is of the utmost importance to us. Upon admittance you will be asked to verify a few things including; you are a Foundation student, at least 18, and will not record the class. This will be done securely so that only one member of Foundations staff will view your replies. Also, we will require all participants to be on video, no “audio only” option. Though Foundations will do everything in our power to protect your privacy, we cannot absolutely guarantee online security.
