The first ever London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage was a massive success! We atttacted a very diverse crowd and the feedback has been great. Here is what Run Riot , Don't Panic and Metro said. I will be putting up galleries very shortly on the Esinem site . Meanwhile, here are some pictures from the Salon of Kinbaku and Saturday by Bobette, our favourite cross-dressing photographer, who famously set his skirt on fire whilst trying to capture the perfect shot at the party!


Firstly many thanks to all the team who worked so hard to bring it all together at such short notice. Secondly, a big thank you to all the people who came from all over the world and made the weekend so very special and unique.

In answer to the question on everyone's lips: Yes, we are planning another and it will be bigger and better! Keep an eye this blog and on Esinem's site .

The seminars and demonstrations were fantastic, with most of Europe's best rope slingers in the house to provide invaluable experience and hands on action.

Resistance Gallery has never looked better, with the awesome artwork on display and decor providing a superb ambiance to the proceedings.

Here are a few shots from the event.
