Christmas Rope Jam!
It's Rope Jam, Christmas styles!
We are so excited to welcome you to a rope jam in a space that is perfect for floor rope, partials and suspensions!
A rope jam is a space to hang out with rope people, practice our rope skills and play in a community setting. Rope is a beautiful way to connect with our own bodies, our friends and partners.
It takes time to develop rope knowledge and skills, and it’s safer when we can look out for each other, so a rope jam is a chance to hang out, learn and have fun. If you are curious about rope and would like to meet ropey people, ask questions, and see some rope scenes, come along!
You don’t need to have your own rope to join in. We will have some you can borrow for practicing the basics.
If you would rather be tied, it’s great to come along and learn about rope safety, scene navigation, what to look for in a rigger, etc. so that your rope experiences are positive.
Costs and Times
Entry is $10 per person and open to all rope enthusiasts. Doors open at 6pm and we’ll finish at 10pm. The entry fee is to cover hall hire and insurance for the evening.
Instead of an optional workshop, we thought we could help people get in the Christmas spirit by setting up some props (lights, trees etc.), so folk can get some rope photos while they're all wrapped up like a present.
What to wear
Whatever you feel comfortable doing rope in (or you wish to have in your Christmas photos), but we generally wear clothes you’d wear to a yoga or exercise class.
Located at the Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Newcastle West, the room features wide, open spaces for floor rope and an open ceiling full of steel beams for partial or full suspension. The space is on the top floor so we can be ourselves without vanillas wandering by.
What to bring
Yourself! Rope and your cutting tools if you have them.
If you have your own mats, please bring them along. We will bring some mats, and there will also be yoga mats.
If you have the appropriate skills and experience and plan to do a partial or suspension, please bring your own climbing straps, carabiners, rings etc.
Can’t wait to see you all there!
