All Done - 14-11-15

Campaign Studio Kink is now finished. The response we've received has been just amazing. Studio Kink is under construction and looking amazing, we're well on track for our launch on in 6 days time - they'll be our backers party, then a full week end of classes! 

Ticket for our classes can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/studio-kink-launch-weekend-tickets-19461239090

As a special thanks after all of the support we've been shown by the community, tickets for classes on our launch weekend will be just $25 per person per class.

And because we don't want anyone missing out, and want to make the most of the time our team are contributing to raise funds, we're making the tickets still available for Kinky Shopping with Aleni De Viate available as well (https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/studio-kink-launch-weekend-tickets-19461239090)

NB!!!!

"Learn Something"

The Early-Access period for booking classes on our launch weekend has now ended! If you want to book classes, they're available here https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/studio-kink-launch-weekend-tickets-19461239090. 

You can still contribute for the "learn something" reward, and we'll send you a $30 discount code, which can be used any time before the end of March 2016. However, if you want to book classes on our launch weekend, booking them directly would be more efficient :)

If you would just like to contribute, or if you can't come to our launch weekend but would like to get involved, "learn something" is still a great option!

NB!!!!

UPDATE! 09-11-15

UPDATE! 22-10-15

The Studio Kink Team has been getting out in the community, talking to people, finding out just how much interest there is in Studio Kink, and excitement for what it will become.

We so appreciated the community's support and desire to get involved, and we know that some of you missed out on the rewards you had your eye on, with everything moving so fast. So in the interest of giving more people a chance to get involved, we’re making some new rewards available.

Nothing has changed, we still don't expect something for nothing, and we want to make sure that our supporters also feel supported by us. If any of our early supporters would like to change to one of the new rewards, please contact us so that we can make sure that you get the reward that suits you best.

** The Ultimate Studio Kink Launch Bundle, take two +++

 ALL GONE!

In take one of the Ultimate Studio Kink Launch Bundle supporters had the chance put their name to a point in the front row of Studio Kink. They took that chance, the front row points were claimed in the first day of our campaign! So now we’re opening up the second row - and don’t fear, Studio Kink will have a stage for presentations and performances, and will hit that perfect balance between spacious and intimate, so we’re confident that these will be points that you’ll be happy to have your name above!

  • Pledge $300…   and receive your name on the Supporters Frame, with your choice of points to put it above in the second row. A point that will then be yours at any classes you attend as an SKS member!
  • And, a 1-year Inaugural Membership, which will entitle you to special members pricing, early offers, and a range of other benefits
  • And, entry to our exclusive Backers Launch Party

And once row two is taken, if our supporters are still keen, we’ll be happy to realise the third row of points

UPDATE! 16-10-15

Studio Kink Logo Square 7K

Things move quickly at Studio Kink… another day, another goal reached! We’ve hit 7k, and we’ll be having a BBQ to thank all of our supporters! So what’s next? We at Team Studio Kink just keep moving forward :) keep offering our great rewards, keep raising funds, keep pouring every cent into Studio Kink - to make an amazing community space, for the community, by the community.

For our next goal (because it’s good to have goals) - 10k! And to help us reach it, our team has donated lots of Private Lessons (including self-suspension with Lani!), a Kinky Shopping Day with Aleni, an Ultra Femme Day with Lani, Ducati rides with Nawarei, Crochet Genitalia by Cypher, and of course, tickets to our exclusive Backers Launch Party - only 20 remaining!

We also have Early-Access “Learn Something” Codes available, which let you book classes on our Launch Weekend 24-hours before they go on public sale, while redeeming the full value of the code! And they can also be redeemed any time before the end of March 2016, so if you’re planning on coming along to a class at Studio Kink (and why wouldn’t you? It’s going to be amazing!) you have nothing to lose :)

And if you just want to show your support, while becoming a permanent part of Studio Kink, you can always grab a “Support Us” for only $10, and see your name on our Supporters Frame.

Wow… what can we say? After 2 day, we’d already reached our initial goal of $3000, and before midday on the 3rd, the amazing support shown to us by Adelaide Rope Space has pushed us over $5000, and brought us our "Studio Kink Divine Supporter"!!!! We’ve been simply blown away by all the support we’ve received, and this amazing response from the community, both local and across Australia. With our initial goal hit, and then surpassed, we have the funds we need to comfortably undertake the fitting out of Studio Kink, ready for our launch in November. But our campaign isn’t done, far from it!

The Studio Kink team are still eager to donate much more of our time and effort to raise the money which will help us make Studio Kink absolutely amazing, now and into the future. There are still have a huge number of great rewards waiting to be claimed, and we’d love to see each and every one of them taken! Perhaps that’s being overly ambitious, but a team can dream :)

This campaign has been our chance to show you what SKS has to offer, to give you a chance to purchase those offerings ahead of time, and by this wonderful symbiosis that is crowd funding, help us make them happen! So that’s the vein in which we plan to continue, with our new ‘stretch goal’ of $7000. With this added funding, we’ll be able to not just fit out Studio Kink with all the best a Studio of Kink could hope for, but also invest in resources that will help us extend the range of workshops we can offer and make this a truly multifunctional space. And beyond that, who knows? Kinksters may have limits, but Studios don’t have too ;)

More than anything, we want to throw a great launch party, have a fabulous weekend of classes, an amazing first quarter of private lesson, some truly unforgettable shopping days, a world filled with crochet cocks (and vaginas), and create an amazing Studio Kink. So please, just keep on helping us make that happen, you wonderful kinky people.

And because we do so love and appreciate this kinky community, we’re letting you know, right here and now, that if we reach our second goal of $7000, we’ll be having a BBQ for all our supporters, where you can come hangout in the sun with our team, get to know us, have a sausage or two (or an appropriately herbivorous alternative), and generally bask in your collective awesomeness.

 

Campaign Studio Kink

Studio Kink will be launching this November. We are a group of Sydney-based kink educators, with almost a century of combined experience and a rich history of contributing to the development of a vibrant kink community. Our own lives in BDSM have found us travelling interstate and internationally, meeting people from all walks of life, forming valuable contacts with communities worldwide, and constantly growing our own skillset and knowledge base. Now, it’s time for us to find our focus, here in Sydney. We will be bringing this strong track-record, wealth of experience, and proven passion to a new and exciting endeavour, and we would like you to join us.

We have secured a space - centrally located in Sydney’s inner-west (and near good coffee!), close to public transport, and with plenty of parking. And we have a plan, in fact many plans in the works, well on their way to fruition. Now we’d like to to give the community the opportunity to be involved by assisting us at this early stage. We’re looking for contributions that will go towards fitting out Studio Kink. We want to create a venue for you that has an atmosphere conducive to both learning and self-expression, with all the amenities and comforts.

And in return, because we don’t expect something for nothing, we’re offering a wide range of perks. Perhaps most excitingly are tickets to our exclusive backers launch party, as well as early-access presale codes for our launch weekend of amazing classes. There are also private lessons with the skilled members of our team; shopping trips that will introduce you to the best kept secrets that the kink scene of Sydney has to offer, and prepare you to step out in in style; highly sought after crochet genitalia; and even the opportunity to have a 6-hour intensive tailored to the needs of you and your friends (or just you!).

Studio Kink will be a space for people from across the kink community. It will be primarily a space for education, to run classes and workshops that cover a range of topics, from rope to D/s, heath and safety to alternative relationship structures, and everything inbetween. However, we understand the importance of gaining experience firsthand in a non-academic setting, and that community is built in actions, as well as words - from intimate gatherings, to live performances, play, and social get-togethers, Studio Kink will be flexible in its abilities to meet the needs of the community. While the team behind the Studio have the passion, experience and knowhow to provide the events that get the community talking.

With one of our core values being cooperation, not competition, we will be opening our doors to other talented educators, both local and from further afield. This will be a safe and creative space, focused on building connections between all segments of the kink community, a space for artisans and crafters, performers, instructors, for those who have experience, skills and passion to share. We are committed to treating everyone who passes through our doors fairly and with respect, and this extends to recognising the value of the time and skills we know that many will be keen to contribute. We’re also committed to giving back, and so your contributions will help us build a space from which a proportion of all future profits reinvested in the community (for example going towards supporting charity and other community ventures). Because this is, above all, a space for community, for those who want to learn and experience, grow and discover. It’s already on its way, but with your help, we can make this space even better, for all of us.

Pledges and Rewards

* To get you the best value for your contribution, some of our rewards have been bundled together, these are marked with a +. For example, if you want to come to the Backers Launch Party (and why wouldn't you!), but you also want your name on the Supporters Frame, you're in luck, because the "Party! +" reward has the Supporters Frame bundled in with it. And if you want to become a SKS Inaugural Member (with special members pricing, early offers and other benefits), you'll get a ticket to the Party and your name on the Supporters Frame as well, all bundled with the "Become a Member +" reward, the same is true of our Private Lessons.

In other cases, we've left rewards unbundled, to give you more flexibility. So that if you want to come to Aleni's Kinky Shopping Day, or Lani's Ultra Femme Day, you can get that reward all on it's own - then you don't need to worry about whether you can make it to our Launch Weekend. However, if you want to come Shopping, but you also want to come to our Launch, or get a Private Lesson, you can grab those rewards separately, and make a bundle to suit you.

If you find yourself confused (because there's always a compromise between providing flexibility, and making things more complicated), just get in contact with us, we're super friendly! And if the bundles we have aren't working for you, let us know, and we'll see what we can do to help you help us :) and to give you great stuff as a thanks!

On our Launch Weekend - 20-22 November!
