Information Shared - Tutorials

A new trend has developed in the lampwork community,
and that is the sharing of information
via
tutorials
that are sold to members of the lampworking community.
Personally,
I LOVE THEM!
I've bought my fair share of these tutorials!
I feel it is a wonderful means to share information on techniques,
especially when classes are not always available
for the buyer.
Most of the tutorials are very reasonably priced.
They usually run between $15 and $20.
There are a few out there that are as high as $100.
I can't afford those.
I made this mushroom using a tutorial by Mary Moth.
It's a fabulous tutorial, and I don't regret buying it at all.
I learned a lot of things by using this tutorial.
It's a great source of information for me.

Mary also developed a bird tutorial.
This tutorial is also an excellent one!

Here's a bird I made using Jen Geldard's bird tutorial.
I've spent a lot of money on tutorials, because I find them to be great resources of
information,
and
with all the tutorials I've bought,
I've spent a little over the amount I would spend for a single class.
Ask me,
Do you like tutorials that are sold to the buying public?
Yes, I do.
Will you buy more tutorials?
Yes, I will.
In spite of the fact that these tutorials are sold and not shared without cost,
do you still consider them to be a
legitimate way to share information?
Most definitely.

I agree with you, Mona! I do believe that we are all meant to share. It's part of what we do.
