What does it mean to do kink while fat? How does the kink experience change for fat people? This discussion for people who identify as fat and kinky will explore these topics and add new perspectives in a non-judgmental environment.
A fun, interactive & immersive way to learn about non-verbal consent.

The workshop provides an opportunity to refine awareness of body language & learn new skills in a playful, safe and non-sexual environment. Embodying different animals’ characters invites participants to engage in new ways & discover the fun in consent.
The workshop is a clothes on experience with opportunities to negotiate cuddles, play, strokes and purrs using non-verbal animal tools.

Floored! - Two part class - Beginner (riggers must be able to tie a single column tie and have some experience of rope)
The aim of the class is that by the end you should have some idea of the range of sexy, beautiful and torturous possibilities that floorwork brings and have the tools and approaches to explore this with partners. Through this I want to teach a little bit around body mechanics in ties.
This class will look at a selection patterns for floor ties, including some more interesting and challenging variations on well known classics. We will also look at how we can combine some of these shapes for aesthetically pleasing results as well as how we can approach the tie in a way which makes the experience of tying/being tied fun and exciting.
MnR discovered shibari in 2014 and this evolved into a love affair with ropes. He enjoys learning, practicing and connecting with different people and attends many rope workshops in the UK and abroad. Although he mostly ties, he greatly enjoys getting tied when there is an opportunity. He has been a regular at Anatomie Studio since it opened and quickly became an essential member of the studio. He has been published in Artplay Magazine and has provided rope work for videos including an award winning art installation in Oslo.
Flagging and coding, from violets and green carnations to red bandanas, has been a part of queer culture for ages as a way to signal desire and availability to those within an Outsider group. Flagging is also a way to explicitly communicate what you’re interested in and opening up a conversation about specific desires!
I’ll give a brief queer history of how flagging and coding have been used to covertly signal same-gender and kinky desire in times when they were criminalised, followed by a practical workshop on different ways of flagging and what different flags mean, including hankies, femme flagging using nail art and other modern and historical queer signifiers. We’ll discuss modern flagging and position participants to flag during the play parties, in one of many ways we negotiate, navigate and communicate desire.
