December SMARTies - Karada: Gender, Shape, and Fashion

  • Cleveland Play Space Cleveland, OH United States (map)

Cost: $20 at the door


Karada: Gender, Shape, and Fashion

Integrating fashion design principles, macrame, and decorative knots, we can build sexy rope body harnesses which look good at a party (or disappear under your evening-wear) and leave openings for all your important play needs later. Aimed at all genders and body types.



The only thing Master So’N’So loves more than hearing himself talk is having someone else hear him talk. If you ignore his huge ego, he’s just another So-and-So in the crowd. His skills with ropes, cameras and relationships do not come from some innate greatness, but simply through letting himself love the things that he loves and wanting to be better at them.

He knows no special tricks, is possessed of no innate talent. The things Master So’N’So knows, anyone can learn.

A life-long non-monogamist, and full-time fantasy art photographer, Master So’N’So travels frequently for his day job, teaching a variety of art subjects at conventions and art fairs. He has been involved in managing non-profit organizations since he was a small child, has studied rope bondage since 2006 and has been actively involved in the Chicago community since 2008, working with The Next Generation Chicago, the Man Ho Foundation and heavily engaged in general community building. He currently organizes Bound To Learn, an open space rope meetup/self-education event which occurs monthly on a floating Friday at Galleria Domain 2. His sex-positive courses have been well received internationally, including locations in Canada, Florida, Texas and the Midwest.

Remember to bring:

  • A good attitude
  • Willingness to learn, share, and be a part of the community
  • Rope, if you have some(we do have some to share)
  • Comfy clothes(or not)
  • Valid, state-issued identification

Since this is a longer event, bringing snacks/food to share are encouraged, but not required. We will have a break or two to refresh, rehydrate, and nosh.

SMARTies meetings are open to anyone 19 and older and no membership is needed. We aim to be an fun, education-based group focused on teaching, sharing, and exploring the fascinating world of rope, open to ALL levels of experience.
