Peer Rope is organized every Friday 7-11 pm at Eskus (Sali I), Puhdistamo, Suvilahti, Helsinki. It's a relaxed peer learning space where we learn from each other. 

  • No registration needed
  • You can attend once, sometimes or every week
  • We have rope to borrow
  • You can attend regardless of experience level
  • You can hang out, have a coffee or tea and chat with people when/if you don't want to tie

To ensure a safer space, we ask you to be on time. We will close the doors when the starting circle starts at 19.05 and will open them again after the introductions have been done.

Peer rope has a secret Facebook group. Send a message to Ceci Ferox on fb to be a part of the group after you have attended your first Peer Rope.

Are you a newbie?

Welcome to our colorful group! You can attend peer rope at any time. We also organize introductory classes before peer rope every ~3 weeks.

We recommend newbies arrive in the beginning of the night: we have an introduction circle and go through the code of conduct. If you can't make the starting circle, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in advance.

You can always attend peer rope alone and find new friends when you get there. If you feel socially awkward, like many of us do, it's totally ok to bring someone you already know with you.
