Shibari Classes

Club Ascension celebrates Michigan Happy Knots returning to the club!  MHK provides education and a social group environment for those attending to learn from each other.  They provide a 30 to 45 minute class on a specific type of tie for both beginner and advanced at the beginning of the evening.  Then allow people to break off and socialize and practice the tie they learned.  This gives people a way to share their knowledge, techniques, tips and tricks with others all while making friends.  This is for those who like to socialize and learn in large group type settings.  This group runs their event every other Wednesday at Club Ascension.  Check our Calendar for more information on dates this happens.


We also provide more private Shibari education for those interested in more hands-on intensive workshop type teaching.  We have 2 types of classes.  One is a small group of up to 10 in a class and the other is just direct 1 on 1 instruction.  You can choose what fits your needs.  The small group intensive classes run for 4 weeks, 2 hours per class per week.   They pack a ton of information and knowledge into them and give you a great launching ground to begin your journey.  They are perfect for those who want to learn with less distraction from large crowds.  Additionally, we offer  private 1 on 1 instruction on an hourly basis and scheduled completely by appointment.

Consent Film Project

The first episode of the Ascension Show is revolving around consent issues.  Given the way that we are planning the show.  We decided to use film projects as a means to convey a message, along with comedy skits and open frank discussion.  We hope that if someone watches and part of the show bores them, hopefully another part of the show they get the message from.  Kind of a lofty ideal as the saying goes, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink” will probably be the case more often than not.  But myself and those involved with the show believe that if we educate even a few people and help spark change.  Then that change will hopefully grow and spread.

So anyway as some have heard Sunday March 5th at Club Ascension we are holding a not really party…. Party for the purpose of filming interaction between people, setting up mock consent violations as we know they happen in the real world, then plan to work in resolutions to the violations.  As well as interviews with those involved and their views of the project.

If you are interested in being a part of this project, and do not have any issues with your face being exposed on film related to alternative lifestyles.  Feel free to come out on the 5th from 2pm -5pm and we’ll include you in the project.  We look forward to trying something we believe as a different approach to educating folks.

If you want to attend then please send me a message and let me know and I’ll give you directions to the film shoot.

Call to Artisans

Do you craft, design or produce your own lifestyle/lifestyle related and non lifestyle items?  Would you like an opportunity to show off your work and place it in a shop to sell?  Club Ascension is looking for vendor items to carry in its online and club shop.  We would like to hear from you and take a look at your wares.  Not everyone makes it into the shop as we look for a certain level of craftsmanship and care taken when creating your products.  We are open all kinds of artisan craftsmanship and artwork.  Our shop does not restrict to just the typical paddle, flogger, whip type of items.  If you craft it, we are probably interested in it.  The shop charges a 20% consignment fee to stock and carry your items.  Discounts we offer our members come out of our consignment fee or in part gets applied to our general fund for the benefit programs we offer our members.  Please contact us if you are interested in discussing this further.

Photography Group and Photo Services!

We started a monthly Photography Group shoot in February.  It went absolutely fabulous and I think everyone walked away from that shoot happy.  We run this group shoot monthly so there are plenty of opportunities for photographers and models alike!

There were a few edges to smooth out in how it ran and we look forward to continually making adjustments to improve the shoot for everyone involved.  If you need more information on our monthly group shoots.  We use meetup for those.  Feel free to join our meetup group!

Aside from the Photography Group shoots we have started offering a new service here.  Photographers can now rent the Club for their projects requiring a unique type of studio.  Our building is broken into many theme styled studio rooms.  Our studio’s would be for shooting Boudoir, implied/nude, fetish, erotic art type photography.  We also have the great outdoors at our disposal when the weather co-operates.

Our theme styled rooms include:

  • Fully Equipped Dungeon
  • Large Shower Room
  • Boudoir Bedroom
  • Shibari Suspension Room with 3 hard points
  • Smokers Room
  • Relaxing lounge and other areas

We are sure we can fit into your photography needs.  You can always stop by and check the building out on request to see if it is a fit for your project before you rent as well!

Other Photography Services we can provide you for your projects are:

  • Models you can work with
  • A Shibari Rigger for your Rope-craft photography
  • Help with lighting the scene
  • Hang your work on the walls of the club for sale
    • All works hanging on the walls of the club may be also sold through our online shop as well.

Educators and Presenters

Yes we would like to hear from you,  we are putting together a Video Web Show.  Presenters interested in interviews and teaching to a broader spectrum of folks across the internet is what we are ultimately looking for. While we do offer our members some educational events and classes we tend to leave most of the seminar style teaching to another organization that runs in our area called the Board of Education.

We realize that some presenters need to keep their lives separated from the lifestyle and can’t be open about who they are.  So we understand if this is something you can not do.  If your still interested in getting your message across we can work with you to use a different face as the presenter to teach your class and leave the credit for all research and information to you.  You can be present during the filming to make sure your message is heard your way.

If this sounds like something your interested in, please contact us.
