Kinky Crafts: Class Description

Making your own kinky toys is great because, while it takes more time than buying them, it is usually less expensive and you get to customize it to your needs. In addition, making your own toys gives you the opportunity to add your own energy to the piece and putting in the time and effort to create a toy is a great way to say “I love you” (or, at least “I love to hurt you”). This class will introduce the basics of kinky crafting (where to get ideas and materials) and you will get the opportunity to build two kinky craft projects of your own: a rope flogger and beautiful (non-piercing) nipple jewelry.

You can do one or both of the craft classes and the supplies will be available for purchase at the event.

The cost for supplies:
Rope flogger: $12
Nipple jewelry: $3 for a pair
Total for both classes: $15

So that we can plan accordingly, please indicate which class you are interested in when you register.
About the Presenters
Soren and Aurora have both been building their own toys since they began exploring BDSM. They love kinky crafting because of the creativity it allows. Recently, they have built a number of toys together, ranging from the more traditional (a spanking bench and a human-sized iron birdcage-style cage) to the more playful (hula-hoops and tutus). Both have taught a number of kinky classes over the years. Aurora’s first kinky teaching experience was a class on bondage safety and kinky crafts that was taught at a health food store (believe it or not) in Berkeley, CA as part of their Valentine’s Day educational series. They are both excited about this opportunity to share their years of accumulated knowledge.
