Art of the Scene & Ichinawa – Jackson, TN
March 23 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-6
I’ll be teaching about Art of the Scene with a side of Ichinawa for the Jackson Instructional group. this is held in a private home, so please contact the event organizers to be vetted. Fetlife event post.
The kink community has grown exponentially over the last decade. New folks, both older and younger, have discovered a path of exploration they did not know about prior. An unanticipated result of that growth, of all those extra people, is that there are more people coming in than can really be taught effectively. Now, don’t get all bent out of shape. I’m not talking about “one true way” stuff here. I’m talking about something different… something that a lot of the new folks didn’t get the opportunity to learn in between flogger classes and rope classes and cupping classes.
So much of the satisfying stuff we do is really about the connections we make with people and those connections can be forged in conversation, in d/s interactions, and in s/m scenes. But they’re not obvious. You can’t see them in the way you can see a caning style, or the way you can see the path of a blade.
In this class, we’ll talk about the art of a scene — not just how to hit someone. Our goal is in fostering the connection between top and bottom so as to make a scene and not just a play session. We’ll talk about different ways to forge this connection and keep it. Bring your questions, ideas, suggestions and stories as this is meant to be a place to share, rather than a lecture.
The Art of the Scene class will be followed up with an additional 45-60 minute hands-on workshop teaching Ichinawa (Connective Rope), which is a class only offered in conjunction with Art of the Scene.
