This event is an international one and will be held in English.


Anna Noctuelle is a highly experienced and versatile Shibari practitioner with over 18 years of experience. Her journey with Shibari began as a personal discovery and has since evolved into a multifaceted practice encompassing teaching, modelling and performing. Her dedication to sharing her passion for Shibari has taken her to various rope communities across Europe teaching workshops and captivating audiences with performances since 2016.

Anna’s artistic journey has been deeply influenced by her diverse background. With a foundation in classical dance and breath work practice, she brings grace, elegance, and a keen sense of body awareness to her Shibari practice. Her exploration of Buddhism, tantra and meditation, as well as her commitment to yoga, have shaped her aesthetic and philosophical approach to Shibari, lending it a spiritual depth and tranquility. Being a linguist in her other life she’s constantly exploring the communicative aspects of Shibari. Anna Noctuelle’s blend of skills, knowledge, and experience make her an exceptional practitioner and educator of Shibari who understands what it means create safe and inclusive learning environments which reward inquiry, curiosity, courage, experimentation and playfulness.

Shibari education often focuses heavily on the tying, especially in the initial stages, to the extent that we often forget how important the role of the model/bottom is. Being 50% of the dynamic, the person inside the ropes plays a significant role in influencing the scene and its progression. Similar to an experienced rigger, an experienced model can elevate the shared experience by keeping themselves (and their rigger) safe, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries, and allowing for better flow and communication, ultimately resulting in better play.
This evening will cover some of the skills and knowledge required for bottoming in rope, such as negotiation and consent, physical considerations, injuries and risks as well as tipps and trick for rope modelling.

The workshop will be a mix of discussions, Q&A, and practical exercises. However, there will be no tying in this workshop.

The class is for all levels and could be especially beneficial for those early into their rope journey, but we will adapt the material to suit the participants' level. No previous experience is needed. Bringing a rigger is not required, but we firmly believe that Shibari—regardless of which side of the ropes is being taught—concerns both parties, and educating yourself on both sides holds huge benefits.
