Welcome to Rope365
Rope365 is a compendium of ideas to learn, practice and explore rope bondage. Also known as shibari or kinbaku, rope can be a powerful tool to connect with your partner, with your own body, and with your creative mind. 365 concepts to try out, enough to keep you busy for a year, and probably a lifetime.
The Rope365 curriculum is built around simple building blocks and playful ideas to create your own ties and sessions. The Getting Started section and the first two weeks of Spring contain the most essential techniques, and from there you can explore the topics in any order.
This site covers subjects related to sexuality and intimacy and is intended for an adult audience. All of our educational content is free and you can support this project on Patreon.
Getting started – This section will give you an overview of the rope365 project and cover important information like consent, safety and starting with rope. Plus some bonus writings about most frequently asked questions.
Spring – Foundations and classics. This section includes full tutorials on foundational techniques and classic ties, then takes you on a discovery of key concepts.
Summer – Body positions. Summer explores 91 different ways to bind the bodies with upper body ties, structures and much more.

This is an incredible website. I don’t have access to a peer rope group, and I’m approaching the art by myself… your teaching is so precious because goes beyond self-contained tutorials. Yours give core knowledge and inspirations, for a person to express their own style and creativity. After exploring your lessons for just few days, I feel already so much more confident. I think you help me unlock something. And all the links to articles and other artist’s works! I thank you deeply.

Thank you for your message. This is exactly why I created the website, enable people to find their own creativity, especially those who don’t have the chance to have a local group.

I saw a rope cutter in a picture showing the shibari essentials and would like to know where you found it/what kind of cutter would you recommend getting.

It’s a gerber strap cutter but this model doesn’t seem to be available anymore. They do have a new model on their site, but I haven’t tried it with rope so let me know if you do. The hook part seem similar to mine, with a better grip.
My husband uses the boker plus rescom, it’s a really nice design.
Hope this helps!
