Rope Semester, Edinburgh 2015

Xian & Ro-nin are happy to announce our “Rope Semester,” an Edinburgh-based tuition course beginning Sunday 26th April 2015hosted by Rope-Ed.
Traditional II -Digital Devil

Classes will run for 3 hours on a Sunday afternoon/evening, and is capped to a small group of maximum 5 couples. Aimed at improvers/intermediates, minimum entry requirement is being able to tie a 2-rope box-tie.

Pre-pairing is definitely required: you do not have to be in any way romantically or play involved, just comfortable tying together in a workshop environment! If you do not have a practise partner, we may be able to help you book a professional if given enough notice.

Single class/drop-in price: £60 per couple
Full semester price: £240 per couple (£40 p/class)
