Hedwig is a queer feminist, poly, switchy femme, born, raised and currently residing in Sweden. She picked up rope after having moved to London and exploring the rope scene there. Rope bondage has since become a huge part of her life that she explore both as a personal passion, as well as being active learning and sharing from those around her.

Hedwig is passionate about communication, rope bondage, safer sex and consent culture, about redressing notions of power, physical sensations, vulnerability, dominance and submission, gender and communities working together. She has taught & performed at various venues across Europe & North America since 2011, while also running the Rope Attic in Malmo (Sweden) a space for learning & sharing rope.

She hopes to bring rope bondage to a larger audience as she believe it has the capacity to create ways to communicate & interact, offering diverse routes to pleasure & a playful exploration of desire, surrender & movement. As an educator, Hedwig focus on the mutual experience, embracing an inclusive and open atmosphere where the topics at hand are approached both with respect as well as a sense of humor. She strives towards creating integrated learning spaces, where she hopes that her experience as a switch can bring multiple perspectives to everyone attending.

Hedwig is a former member of the crew of Peer Rope London, current member of the crew of Peer Rope Malmö and Hitchin’ Bitches Oresund, as well as founding member and grand poobah of Hitchin’ Bitches. Hitchin’ Bitches is an international network for female identified riggers and rope tops with over 40 chapters over the world. She is also a founding member of the event Ropework.Org, a meta event for rope educators, performers and organisers. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on Shibari, and is currently active as a sex educator, activist and generally being a pain in the butt of patriarchy.
