Hashira Workshop: September Edition with Kinbaku LuXuria image

About the Workshop

This workshop is dedicated exclusively to Hashira Shibari. Hashira Shibari has been one of Wildties and Redsabbath's favourite ways of tying since they started following the work of Sensei Naka Akira, and it has been one of the first things they wanted to learn from him. Kinbaku LuXuria can say without any doubt that they are among the people in the west that have spent more time studying, practicing and evolving Hashira Shibari.

This workshop will cover traditional Naka Ryu ties, as usual as revised by Wildties. Also some older fashion ties popular in Nureki Sensei's time, hashira floor ties and also a few acrobatic ties.

We will work in depth on the technique and the aesthetics but also on the cultural aspects of this traditional form of shibari and of course on the psychological and physical effects on the model.

Hashira shibari has seen it's popularity grow exponentially and it's currently their most requested workshop.
