Shibari Workshop

Shibari (japanese: to tie, to weave) is the 'art of tying', which relates on the artistically tied object, meant the destination. In Japan it is more common to speak of Kinbaku, which means 'the way of tying' and what relates to the process, meant the route. 'In the land of Shinto tying with rope (nawa) is a holy act. To tie is a basic part of Japanese culture. Everything holy, in which the Japanese recognize 'kami' (goodness, holyness), they tie or wrap round with 'nawa'. What lies behind the rope is holy und so tying connects the holy with the human.' (Miyabi Kyodo)
