Peer Rope Helsinki every Friday
Spring 2019 season 25.1.-24.5. No peer rope on 3.5.
Peer Rope is organized every Friday 7-11 pm at Eskus (Sali I), Puhdistamo, Suvilahti, Helsinki. It's a relaxed 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 Peer Rope.

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

Welcome to the Peer rope open space weekend that starts the fall season for Helsinki Shibari events!
On Friday we will have a normal Peer rope meeting at 19-23. Peer rope begins with a starting circle at 19.05 (the doors will be closed during this time), and continues with practicing rope together. Play is welcomed in the space after 20.00. During the evening, we will have a bit of brain storming on the program of the weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday we will facilitate an open space for learning together. Saturday and Sunday program will happen 13.30-17.30. On Saturday those interested can also organize to have dinner together.
Open space is a method where the group makes the program together. Everyone can facilitate a learning space for a topic they are interested in!
We have one room to use, but it should be possible to have two smaller groups going at the same time. In addition, discussions can be held in the lobby/kitchen or even outside if the weather is nice.
13.30-15 First program slot (1,5 h)
15.30-17.30 Second program slot (2 h)
You can pop in and out of the space and different groups during breaks or during the slot. Vote with your feet! Program updates will be posted in the Facebook event.
