I run a small craft school specializing in jewelry techniques and
stone cutting. I run beginners classes every 4-6 weeks with class
length of 4 weeks. After the beginning class, those who want to
continue, have the option of continuing instruction or open lab
sessions where they continue to learn but not on any set
schedule. I have 30 to 40 new students a year with approx. 20%
continuing on to higher levels. I also have a small retail area
in the front of my shop, but due to the other full time job(I
work as tech support for a local ISP) I can only be open
Saturdays.

I don’t agree. It is good to have some folks “pure” in thier specific
direction, but absolutely necessary for others to be “less specific” in
thier orientation. Many if not most “new” techniques are developed by
folks “bringing methods from one area into another”. For one, great
specificity in an area to get very proficent at it is necessary, but for
others (I include myself here) diversity is the spice of life. For ME
bring on the spice, for others not, but neither of the directions are
wrong.

Gotta agree with John here and if I am not exploring a new way of
doing things it gets mighty boring.Innovation is a thing that doesn’t
come from the pages of a book but it sure does bring new “looks” into
being.Seems I always generate arguments about things but I base what I
say on observations not on what I read in a book.Such as diamonds
floating on water and I say they do because I have seen them do so.I
have been wrong in the past and will usually admit it but when I have
seen something happen several times it is hard if not impossible to
convince me that it is something that did not happen.Gavin …
