Deconstructing Bamboo (Espacio Nos, Barcelona)30 & 31 March 2024

English & Spanish
An in-person masterclass workshop at Espacio Nos (Barcelona) for both cuples and self-tying participants. Participants will navigate with Pauline's guidance in an 2 days intensive of experimentations with bamboo used in different ways, going beyond its classic use in Shibari, and creating a more modern, creative and original narrative that adapts to different tastes. They will share several exercises and practical techniques on how to use bamboo in unorthodox but efficient ways from horizontal (the classic way), to the famous Floating Hashira (bamboo hanging vertically) and everything in between, including the bamboo attached on the body and harnesses.
