    Happy new year! -does enthusiastic jazz hands-

    Celebrate OhioSMART's first munch of the new year with us at Happy Dog for some of the best Hot Doggers in Cleveland.

    From their website (happydogcleveland.com)

    "We’ve got hot dogs and beer, and lots of live music, from rock and country to punk and polka. The bartenders are friendly and the bar itself is open and inviting – a racetrack oval wood bar, with plenty of old chrome barstools. It’s not retro because it’s pretty much unchanged from the time the Socotch family built the place back in the late 40’s."

    Come join us Sunday, Feb 2nd for a Open Tie/Photo session of SMART Ties. We will have the amazing @east_ with us to help you get that ropey picture you have been wanting. We will have a sign up sheet at the door to grab a time slot so you can lab and play without having to wait in line.

    Open ties are just that: OPEN. Maybe you have a tie you are labbing and want to ask questions about? Maybe you are new and just want to pop in and watch people do their ropey things? Maybe you want to take advantage of the hard points and have a scene with your partner or yourself? Whatever it is you are looking for, open ties are an excellent place to try and find it.

    Got a tie you'd like to share? Come share it.

    Need some help? Ask an attendee for a hand.

    Need a partner to practice on? Come see if you can find a volunteer.

    Remember to bring:

    -A good attitude

    -Willingness to learn and share

    -Rope, if you have some(we do have some to share)

    -Comfy clothes(or not)

    -Valid identification

    Bringing snacks/food to share are encouraged, but not required. We will have time to refresh, re-hydrate, and nosh.

    SMART Ties meetings are open to anyone 19 and older and no membership is needed. We aim to be an fun, education-based group focused on teaching, sharing, and exploring the fascinating world of rope, open to ALL levels of experience.

    Barkas’ Kinbaku City
    In this workshop, Barkas and Addie will take participants on a journey through the many meanings of rope. We will discuss communication through rope, movement with rope, and space in the context of rope. This is an opportunity to gain a deep insight into the philosophy and technique of Barkas’ and Addie’s work.
    Although some of the material will be challenging, students of all levels are encouraged to participate. Barkas and Addie will show versions of exercises that work for them. If you can’t, for any reason, practice an exercise, let them know and they can help adapt the exercise for you.

    Barkas is a bondage educator, performance artist, and writer. Their contributions to the bondage narrative include the development of Ranboo, the Interview Metaphor, and the “City of Kinbaku”.

    Originally from Vienna and now residing in Vancouver, they are the cofounder and caretaker of TheSpace2. In addition to ongoing teaching locally, they continue to travel, perform, and give workshops internationally; some highlights include Shibaricon in Chicago, Moscow Knot, Kannawa Kai in Tokyo, West Coast Bound in Vancouver, FIRE in Orlando, Bondage Expo Denver, Place des Cordes in Paris, Anatomie Studio in London, and EURIX Berlin.

    One of Barkas’ focuses is the implementation of philosophical, sociological, mathematical, and historical ideas to develop a deeper understanding of erotic rope bondage. This pursuit lead to the development of the Interview Metaphor - a mindset that prioritizes individuality, attention, and the interaction of the persons tying. As they often say, don’t tie people, tie with people. In 2016 Barkas collected these and other thoughts, and published them in “Archaeology of Personalities; A Linguistic Approach to Erotic Rope Bondage.”

    Addie has been practicing rope for several years now. She enjoys tying, being tied, and self-tying, as well as performing and educating. Her teaching is informed by her professional background as a nurse, mixed with a wicked sense of humour and the goal of providing impactful, practical, and adaptable techniques and information for the wide variety of individuals who enjoy rope. Addie has spent the last four years teaching around the globe with her partner Barkas, providing information from and for the person being tied. Together, they opened and co-run TheSpace2 in Vancouver, a venue dedicated to the exploration of rope bondage and its contexts and expressions.


    Please email info@ohiosmart.org to set up a payment plan if you wish to do so. The deposit is $100 and the remainder will need to be paid no later than 2/14/2020
