Description

Kink curious? Want to play with rope but not sure how or where to start? We’ve got you covered!

Join local kink ambassadors Dark Desires Vermont for our Shibari 101 workshops. In a safe & playful environment we will explore: rope safety, consent, rope selection and care, basic knots, a few ties (single & double column ties, pentagram harness & karada), as well as the importance of communication & after care.

The first 1.5 hours will be actively learning the above, and the last 30 minutes are for Q+A and shopping. All attendees get 15% off any purchases made the night of the event.

No experience necessary, and all bodies are welcome. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move, and aren't shiny - ropes won't stick to shiny clothes. Please let us know if you have any considerations for disabilities at hello@earthandsaltshop.com.

If you have ropes, feel free to bring them; we will provide ropes for this course and will have them available for sale.

Earth and Salt

Earth and Salt is the modern adult store, committed to your pleasure, your way. Our approach to pleasure is holistic and inclusive, as we know that pleasure is possible for everyone, but it looks different from person to person. We also believe that creating a daily connection to physical pleasure, sensuality, and sex is a transformative process, individually and collectively. 

We sell a curated array of body-safe products that enable our customers to center themselves in their bodies, access their pleasure, and confirm sex and desire as parts of a healthy lifestyle. 

As part of our commitment to pleasure for all, Earth and Salt is also committed to social justice as an intrinsic part of our mission. As such we de-gender the sex toy store model, affirm individuals in their identities through our product and class offerings, and support businesses and sex educators from marginalized groups. 

​Our vendor roster is always 50% or more businesses owned by individuals from marginalized groups. We also donate a percent of sales every month to the BIPOC Urban Farm and Wholeness Center in Winooski, VT.
