Beyond specific ties, this class focuses on building fundamental skills. We’ll take a deep look at the versatile spiral wrapping technique and work on rope handling skills that will make all your bondage smoother and better.

Sensual Sessions: Paint & Sip @ Gallery Erato
Sensual Sessions aims to create a relaxed space where through art you can explore the sensual planes of our bodies. Guests will create paintings that explore making shapes through light and shadow work on canvas. By the end of the class, guests should have one finished Acrylic on Canvas painting of the female form in a seductive pose. Admission includes a painting lesson with Genea Morrow of Black Omi Art Co, canvas, paints, and brushes needed to create your painting. For this event, we will have dessert and non-alcoholic drinks available for participants. Details: Time doors open for socializing and settling in: 5:30 pm Time painting starts: 6 pm- 8 pm Tickets are only available in advance until 11pm on the Monday before the event. About your painting instructor: Black Omi Art Co. Genea Morrow is a self-taught artist and creative entrepreneur residing in Seattle. Her interest in art began in 2012 but veered in the direction of modeling and photography; it came full circle in a figure drawing class in 2017. She then took the time to fall in love with creating shapes out of shadow work using charcoal as her medium. It wasn’t until 2021 that she started to play in paint. Genea began a fulfilling career co-owning a children’s educational toy store, J.I.L.L.’s Toyshop, and launching Black Omi Art Co. Though her journey wasn’t always easy, she often opens up about her struggles with imposter syndrome and how she continuously works on her insecurities surrounding her late start to paint. She now creates paintings that tell her story, a story heavily influenced by her history with religion and spirituality, overshadowed by her exploration of her sensuality. Her work is centered around creating the feeling of familiarity, power, and freedom. To highlight the internal battles of feminine and masculine energies women may feel.

Jun 22 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Rope Handling with Webs @ Gallery Erato
Webs are both beautiful and functional, providing a chaotic yet secure net around the body using various directional frictions. They’re also a wonderful tool for learning how to interact more effectively with rope. This class will use a demo and a hands-on portion to teach tops how to maintain tension, hook and pull rope with the fingers, and “paint” rope on the skin, all while building a restrictive web around their partner’s body. Bottoms will gain insight into monitoring their body in rope through specific sensations and feeling for proper rope tension. Prerequisites: Tops should know how to tie a non-collapsing single column. Knowledge of half hitches, munter hitches, and rope joining is recommended. Bottoms should be comfortable in rope and be able to monitor their bodies for potential issues. Equipment needed: (3-4) 25-30’ lengths of 4-7mm rope (natural fiber recommended*) An emergency rope-cutting tool, such as EMT shears or a diving hook *Many of the frictions used in this class are designed for the texture of natural fiber. Synthetic ropes are acceptable but may not hold frictions as well for these techniques. Purchase tickets here! Other Important Info: Pay-what-you-can scholarships are available for all Pan Eros Foundation workshops. If you need financial assistance, please email Leah at [email protected] No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop.

Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group 5:00 pm
Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group @ Gallery Erato
Jun 23 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Monthly Open-Shoot Meetup 4th Sunday of every month Overview Seattle Nude, Erotic + Boudoir Photography Group exists to facilitate networking and the creation of art in the PNW photography and modeling communities while providing a safer, semi-public space to have first or repeated interactions with co-creators. Beginning January 23rd, 2022 the group organizer, Thrice, will be running a monthly meetup where we discuss and shoot nude, erotic, and boudoir photos, share knowledge and inspiration, and network with others in our creative communities. What to Expect After an initial hour of mingling and conspiring, all the fun and excitement of creation starts when we close the doors at 6pm. Come introduce yourself, mingle and meet, then we will collect the event fee and shooting can begin. At this point, no more attendees will be admitted so no new faces surprise you while you’re shooting. Some gear will be available to rent or borrow, we will go through the available supplies at the start of the event. Open Shoot Format Throughout the event, photographers, assistants, and models will use the large, versatile shooting space to collaborate, have fun, and make art. Come with an idea in mind and a photographer in tow or meet someone here and come up with a spontaneous shoot inspired by the surroundings and your model’s style. Bring all your own gear, ready to shoot, and explore the space to find the perfect spot. Take advantage of any down time to connect with your fellow creatives, find inspiration, share your knowledge and experience. Consent + Consideration Make sure that you have the consent of all bodies in your frame before you shoot. Watch your backgrounds and try not to walk through active shooting space you’re not participating in as a courtesy to all. Lingerie, suggested nudity, and nonsexual nudity are welcome throughout the space. We ask that explicit or overtly sexual acts (use your judgement, ask if you’re not sure) be shot downstairs. We will continually evaluate the ways we use the space and adjust for the comfort and needs of our community to best facilitate free creation. No one is required to shoot with anyone else or to shoot any content they do not wish to participate in. Pressure is unacceptable, both photographers and models are expected to take “No” as a complete sentence any time it is given. Our Hosts + Facility Gallery Erato and the Pan Eros Foundation are pleased to offer those who create art that explores themes of sexuality, gender, relationships, identity, orientation, and love a place to showcase and create their work. This 6000+ square foot space in Pioneer Square spans 2 floors. The ground floor Gallery is fully accessible. There is a 3″ lip at the front entry and a ramp is available upon request. The lower level Studio is currently only accessible by stairs. We encourage the use of public transit or rideshare.
