Workshops

A shibari workshop is a good opportunity to learn shibari in a small group — up to 5 couples. Note that you usually should come with a partner, if it's not explicitly stated otherwise.

Private lessons

If you are a couple and prefer to learn shibari individually face-to-face, then you may ask me for private tuition. We'll find an appropriate time slot together and will define the topic according to your needs.

A standard private lesson costs 280 CHF and consists of 3 hours of intensive work.

Rope jams

Since November 2021 I give regular rope jams in the studio — evening parties which are open for all shibari enthusiasts. Everybody is welcome: couples, singles, profis, beginners. I provide a safe space for you to play and expect you to treat each other with respect. My place is easily accessible by car and public transport — about 12 min from Bern train station.

The admission fee for rope jams is 20 CHF per person. I will do an introduction to the rope basics and safety on demand. Usually you can also get a mini-lesson on particular topics during the party.

For the rope jams I prepare 3 suspension-capable places to tie. There's also a coffee corner to relax and watch the others play. Maximum 10 people.
