SMARTies will be having a two part class! We will be going over adaptive/modified TK and gunslinger harnesses for the first half of this extended class! TK ties have been used for suspension and restriction, gunslingers can offer support in suspensions and can also be fun handles!
The second half will be the Tengu harness and different ways to incorporate it into your scene! This is a very restrictive tie that can be used with predicament bondage and breath play. These harnesses are not self-tiable, having a tying partner is encouraged! We are looking forward to this extended class and sharing more awesome rope time with you all!
$15.00 admission for all participants!*SMARTies events are the same price regardless of membership status.
Saturday Daytime Classes
1:30pm - 2:45pm
Needles 101:Sensation (Not Just Decoration!)
New to needles and trying to figure out how to make scenes 'work'? Not sure what to do with ramping? Looking for new ideas to branch out from decorative scenes? Want to make your scenes more fun and exciting? In this class we're covering the basic ins and outs of Needle Play with a focus on how to manage the intensity of sensation during your scene. We'll cover piercing techniques, ideas for playing with needles once they're in, and how to better connect throughout your scene.
@RowanMorrison (they/them) is a sadistic Top that’s been focused on controlling sensation and managing scene flow since they got into needles sometime around 2013. They’re also a longtime OhioSMART member (and former board member), though they now reside in Massachusetts with their partner, two cats, and a tortoise. One of their favorite things (besides pain) is helping introduce newbies to needles and helping people get past the awkwardness of starting out in this awesome form of play.
3:00 pm - 4:15 pm
Finding Your Inner Fire: Primal 101
Your inner fire...whether it is a physical path you tread or a spiritual one, people feel a calling to the primal self that once was. Come learn how to kindle your fire and reach out to the spirits that guide us all. Stories and discussion to inspire.
@MikaelV (He/Him) is a top-leaning switch who has been active in the scene for 10+ years. Starting with his first public appearance at DO Fusion, he has not stopped learning and sharing with people he has met. Mikael is active in the Greater Philadelphia area with Owls Nest, Crave Events, as well as Dark Odyssey camps. He specializes in impact, knives, and primal play.
4:30 PM - 5:45 PM
Whether you are seeking alternative ties for bottoms with mobility concerns, looking for advice on tying with different body types, or trying to get creative within your experience level - this class is for you!
This will be a participant driven, conversational Class geared toward making rope more accessible for You and Your partners. Arriving with topics and questions is strongly encouraged.
@BoyAnachron (they/them, previously GoblinBights) is a queer, disabled, neurodivergent creature with an affinity for rope, leather, and education. Their personality and energy may best be described as equal parts "mischievous court jester" and "stilted Gilded-Age butler", which (they hope!) lends to their lab-y, creative, and conscientious approach to sharing their knowledge with others.
Saturday evening class:
Rhythm and Bruise: How to Elevate Your Scenes Through Audio and Music
Time: 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Time will be spent covering some basic auditory concepts, the sounds different parts of the body make, music’s connection to memories, playlist construction, music pervertables, and more.
There will be demonstrations and active listening for participants.
@RealWookie (He/They) has been listening, creating, and loving music for their entire life.

The Artful Cricket
Nikki “Cricket” of The Artful Cricket has specialized in henna body art for over 20 years. While the practice of decorating one’s body with henna is over 5,000 years old, this beautiful art form feeds readily into modern BDSM and kink practices. Posture and positional control are an essential part of the experience of receiving henna, while foot fetishism, quirofilia, humiliation, and sensual body adornment in general can all be served and enhanced by the application of henna. Visit with The Artful Cricket during the Flea and try henna out for yourself, or consult with Cricket about how to incorporate henna body art into future experiences or events!
