Ebi McKnotty is a rope addict based in Quebec City, Canada. She has been self­-tying since 2006, and started modeling as a bottom in 2007. She started tying others and self­-suspending in 2011 when she learned with the Ichinawa­Kai and Kazami Ranki in London. It hasn’t stopped since. She travels all over America and Europe to learn and share her discoveries with her community.

Classes

Bamboo and Lashings

Very popular among boy scouts, lashings are very useful to tie two posts at an angle. They are also great at creating usual positions when tying two limbs together, or when tying said limb to a bamboo. Topics include the role of bamboo and lashing in bondage, clove hitch for bamboo, adapting lashings to tie limbs, improvisation exercise using bamboo, and time allowing partial suspension on bamboo.
