Workshop: Bondage Hoods, Bagels, and Bloody Marys
Saturday, May 2, 11-2pm
This Saturday Machine Project has made the questionable decision to allow Mark Allen’s college students to host a workshop in our storefront. Presenting Bondage Hoods, Bagels, and Bloody Marys – a morning of crafts and brunch. Local dominatrix Kim Ye will give an introduction to the subculture, then lead participants through the crafting of their own custom bondage hoods out of vegan-friendly pleather. Accompanying the crafts are an assortment of delicious sliced bagels, and tasty bloody marys. Space is limited, tickets can be purchased for $5 here. This is meant as a safe, welcoming environment allowing participants to explore the aesthetics and erotics of bondage at their own pace.
