Shibariclasses.com – Simple to Complex
If you ever look at complex ties, wonder “How do you do that?” and think that you could never remember, even if somebody taught you every step, this tutorial is for you!
In these tutorials, Nina will show you how she builds up from simple ties to pattern that looks very elaborate. You will learn how the layers build up and how it is not necessary to learn a predefined ‘recipe’ when you follow basic rules and understand when and how to use a few simple ‘ingredients’. The examples were tied completely free-style so each step involves an evaluation of which ingredient should be used and how. Often, you will see her try one way, reject it and choose another. This is useful because you see why one method or direction is better than another and how the correct version follows the rules. Gaining this understanding will allow you to tie creatively with the confidence that your tie will be correctly and safely engineered. You will no longer need recipes.
As you can see from the course curriculum, this is one of our more comprehensive tutorials running to over 105 minutes.
Nina Russ is a London based, shibari performer, rope artist and educator. She became student of Esinem in 2011 and their collaboration gave birth to BOUND shibari night (2012) and ShibariClasses (2015). She had also the fortune to participate at workshops with different Japanese shibari masters, like: Kazami Ranki, Yukimura Haruki, Kinoko Hajime.
She has performed internationally, most notably at the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage and RopeFest in St.Petersburg. In addition, she participates in numerous artistic, fashion collaborations and local performances. Her passion for rope has lead her on a route of discovery of concepts, philosophy, aesthetics and benefits behind this Japanese discipline.
She sees shibari as an art form which creates deep connection between the participants and also aids personal development. Due to its martial arts roots, it brings self-discipline, efficiency, effectiveness and, thus, growth in confidence and awareness. She believes these skills allow a greater focus on the most important aspects: you, your partner and your shared experience.
Rope is simply a means of communication. She wants you to discover through her tying, the language of rope, which speaks directly to the mind and body.
