ROPECRAFT was born out of a simple idea: Let’s make a rope convention we’d really want to go to. That’s why we have integrated diversity and consent culture throughout. This includes things like:

  • The Ropenspace: On Monday there will be a facilitated self-organizing peer education event, run on Open Space Technology, with all the ROPECRAFT instructors in attendance.
  • The Incident Response Teams (IRT): Think of them as Consent Incident First-Responders, with a side of being that negotiation wingman you’ve always wanted.
  • Special Interest Groups: Want to have a safe space for your group to meet and discuss? We will do our best to make time and space for that to happen. Just let us know!


We will have FOUR NIGHTS of SEX-POSITIVE play space. Where? Chicago, baby  The Windy City. Most of the beautiful rigs and lighting have been custom-made, with rock-solid suspension frames, tripods, crosses, benches, and more. We’ll also have some more traditional equipment for you Old-Guard rope types. Want to brush up on your skills before the party? A 24-hour practice room is available. We’ll be having the popular RopenSpace event on Monday and other special events. The playspaces will have plenty of room for floorwork, self-suspension, or even non-rope play if that’s what you’re looking for.


Our rope education track is not just a re-hash of what you’ve seen before. Beginners are welcome to learn the fundamentals of enjoyable rope bondage, and experts are welcome to challenge themselves with cutting-edge content and the opportunity to learn and create from other world-class talent.

We look for innovative classes from new presenters and new classes from innovative presenters.
