Ready, set, flirt! Get up to date and on-board with your flagging skills in this fun and interactive workshop designed to expand participants’ understanding and use of hankies in their own practice and play. This workshop will cover flagging techniques throughout history, including the Hanky Code, and the ways the Code has evolved and changed over time. Come learn about flagging for identity vs. interest and practical ways to flag for flirting and fun! Discover how to use the Hanky Code as a gateway to play negotiations and consider ways to personalize your flagging to suit your individuality.
