This week is the seventh anniversary of the opening of the Melbourne Rope Dojo. Since that time we have tried to pass on our love of shibari to the hundreds of people who walked through our doors to learn.

Doing this has also meant that I have taught at least two classes a week, apart from a couple of weeks off a year to go on holiday, on top of full-time work and bringing up a family. It's now time for me to have a break.

As of the 23rd of May the Melbourne Rope Dojo will permanently close. I will still be available for private lessons, and can be contacted at

Thank you to everyone over the years for your support.
