We are excited to announce Mynx will be returning to Pittsburgh with darkEcho for a weekend workshop of rope bondage. The workshop will be rich with technical, emotional, psychological and inspirational content.

This 2 day workshop will be tailored to fit the skill level and needs of the attendees.

All suspensions will be carried out on a linear point using rattan poles. Principles of bamboo suspensions translate to rattan with some slight nuances.

Proficiency in technique is important in rope bondage not only from a safety standpoint, but it allows for a much deeper and richer experience in the rope for both tops and bottoms. By creating an environment of safety and security with ties possessing sound structure and maintaining integrity throughout the scene, both the top and bottom are able to delve deeper into the kinbaku experience. The workshop will focus on a balance of technique and emotional bonding on both sides of the rope.
