Good teachers will show you several different ways to do things and will say do what works for you. I had one class where the instructor said to hold the rod one way and turn ( roll ) it always away from you. Very adamant that any other way was unacceptable. NOPE.

I gleaned what I could from that person and ignored her on everything else.

You would not learn everything in one or two or even a dozen classes so most of us are self taught in many different areas and ways because lampwork is extensive in techniques, colors, supplies used and the actual individual artistry of lampworking.

Have fun, we tend to make the best progress with mistakes. Although I really hate when it happens with a rare or expensive glass.

Oh well Garden pokes can be fun too....right???
