WORKSHOPS

Workshop #1

Impact Play for Every Body

12.30pm – 1.30pm
with Morgan, Ms Australian Leather 2022


Crops and floggers and paddles, oh my!

Whether you like it stingy or thuddy, sensual or sadistic, impact play has the power to be a cathartic release or a hedonistic wet dream…

There is so much more to impact play than just pretty toys and how hard you can hit. Join Morgan as they whip around the importance of anatomy and risk minimizing, the diversity of different bodies, scene navigation and aftercare.

Workshop #2

Bootblacking and Leather Care 101

2.00pm – 3.00pm
with Jon, Sydney Bootblack 2023


Leather is an easy yet worthwhile investment: with regular care, your gear can last up to many decades. Join Bootblack Jon on a brief history of bootblacks step-by-step demonstration of providing care to your gear, as well as adding that extra magical shine on your boots that’s sure to capture the attention of whichever room you’re in. Additionally, there will be a brief discussion on the history of Bootblacks in Australia and product recommendations.

In order to personalise your experience, it’s recommended that you bring a leather item you’d like to work on to the session. Equipment and learning materials will be provided, however, you’re welcome to bring your own kit. The workshop is interactive, and you’re encouraged to work along so that by the end, you will have the knowledge to work on your projects with relative ease and confidence.

Please note that this workshop does NOT cover nubuck and suede leather. This event is open for all gender, identity, and ability (please keep in mind bootblacking can be physically taxing)

 

Workshop #3

Exploring BDSM Needle Play: Consent, Safety & Techniques

3.30pm – 4.30pm
with Miss Behavin’, Adelaide Rubber 2023


Led by Miss Behavin’ (Adelaide Rubber 2023), an expert in the field, this workshop is perfect for both complete novices and seasoned enthusiasts of BDSM needle play.

Participants will learn about safety, consent, hygiene and appropriate sanitation and skin anatomy as well as exploring different needle play techniques for varying sensations.

Whether you’re just starting or looking to enhance your needle play proficiency, this workshop offers a comprehensive guide to mastering this captivating art form. Join us to expand your skills and deepen your BDSM experiences safely and consensually.
