Who We Are
RVA Rope is a “rope collective” centered in Richmond, Virginia that is managed by a board of members who volunteer their time and talents to organize events and create resources for the local community. (See the list of “Group Leaders” for current board members.)
Our goal is to provide social, skill-share, and educational opportunities and resources that promote the responsible and risk-informed enjoyment of rope bondage and rope bondage art in all of its many forms and styles for all participants in the region. We welcome all experience levels, styles of rope, body types, abilities, races, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
Once Per Month @ Fallout
Social skill share and educational offerings that actively solicits peer sharing and learning while still respecting and welcoming those who would prefer to practice on their own or just observe. Informal guidance for beginners is available at most meetings.

Rope Study is an educational system based in RVA by the founders of RVA Rope. This is not an RVA Rope event, but we actively support and appreciate their continued work providing educational opportunities for the community. They offer courses, workshops, private instruction, and other educational offerings aimed at helping people learn more about rope (top, bottom, switch, or self-tie) with a focus on risk-informed, responsible progression. These offerings do not have a regular schedule but are announced as far in advance as possible.
