We are Fred Hatt & Anna Bones, London based shibari artists.
We do shibari for fashion shoots, editorials, music videos, live performances, conceptual/creative projects, large or small scale rope installation projects and more. For our portfolio, see here.
We are the owners and founders of Anatomie Studio, the UK’s first and only shibari studio, where we regularly teach shibari. Out teaching style has beed described as compassionate, approachable and extremely detailed.
We are both academics, researchers and teachers by training so our approach and love for rope is very much driven by an intellectual curiosity to understand how rope works at its many levels: be in the technical aspects of how the rope (the material) is actually made, to understanding how to the creative process works and the ‘science’ behind the mechanics of the body.
We have been tying together since 2013 and regularly teach and perform both inside and outside the UK (Place des Cordes, BED, Shibaricamp, EURIX, BOUND, TWISTED).
We have been fortunate enough to learn from many wonderful people over the years, including: Kazami Ranki, Hajime Kinoko, Akira Naka, Miumi-U, Barkas, Kasumi Hourai, Ren Yagami, Wykd Dave and Pedro Cordas.
