Apart from workshops with different presenters from all over the world on many different aspects of shibari, we have some more regular classes, for all levels. Due to the Covid-19 situation, we are currently not hosting any workshops with teachers from abroad. This is in order to avoid unnecessary travel from outside of Greece. We hope that we will be able to invite people once again, from all over the world, to show and teach their approach and philosophy in ropes.

Until then, check here some available options to learn the ropes.
