Anastasia, a girl with mermaid's hair, runs a YouTube channel called Voudou Ropes, with detailed bilingual shibari tutorials, as well as shares her art on social media. On her webpage you’ll find a five days shibari course for beginners. Anastasia takes a meticulous approach, paying close attention to each type of knot and creating lengthy (and useful!) videos with detailed explanations.

Maxim Kalahari is a performer, coach, and regular at shibari festivals. He runs bilingual, thematic accounts on social media. Maksim frequently makes YouTube videos, where he talks with sex bloggers  and comments on his performance videos. He holds live master classes, though they’re not easy to get to: the maestro often holds them in a faraway Goa.

One of the most well-known shibari masters in the world, Hajime Kinoko also works as a performer and rope artist. All of the largest shibari festivals have him as a consultant and/or guest of honor. We recommend you take a peek at his social media; the project's scope and budget are impressive. On his website you can find tutorials, a gallery, and a video of his work. And it’s all in English!

We present you the duo of Fred Hatt and Anna Boens, proprietors of Anatomie Studio, one of the first shibari studios in London. When Anna and Fred first opened in 2015, it wasn't yet widely accepted, but it quickly gained popularity and we’re not surprised. They run a blog on their website, where you’ll find in-depth explanations of techniques, some advice, and historical anecdotes to lighten the mood. Take it from us — read "11 Tips to Help you Get Really Good at Tying" and then when ready, test it out with your Pure date.
