Bristol Rope Space

Mission Statement 

Bristol Rope Space aims to provide a safe inclusive environment for all people to access rope education and to practice their rope skills. The focus is on building fundamental skills and the development of safe, sane and consensual rope practice. This is a space to develop self awareness and express ourselves in rope in its many forms, in accordance with the rules. Bristol Rope Space welcomes people of colour, LGBTQ+ people, people with visible or hidden disabilities and anyone otherwise marginalised from society.

The evening will consist of a class on the fundamentals of rope play, a taught tie and Q&A, followed by a demonstration of a popular tie, and time to practice.

What to Bring

Bring a mask. Wear comfortable clothes. You’re welcome to dress up, but be mindful of how this may impact your ability to tie or be tied.

Bring your own rope. There will be some old community rope if you need it, but you will be required to clean them with the Clinell wipes provided before returning them. 

Bring your own floor mat/rug/blanket if you can. There will be some mats available, but you will be required to clean these with the Clinell wipes provided after use.

Please bring your own water bottle. This will save plastic waste. There is a kitchen to use and some snacks will be provided.

Remember to bring your own after care resources and any emergency medication you use.
