I started out with a 2 day course, Passing the Flame, and this forum Cheesy

Then I bought a couple of other books, but Passing the Flame is so pretty that I keep returning to that all the time.

I like Passing the Flame, but sometimes get a bit overwhelmed by it. Just too much to look at!!!

The book I always turn to if I need help and inspiration is "Creative Lampwork" by Joan Gordon. Her instructions and photos are so clear, and she covers all of the basics really well.

Without a doubt 'Passing the Flame'

I have most of the others, many of which are great, but PTF is THE book for beginners IMHO   Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

I have this book "Creative Lampwork" by Joan Gordon. and I love it.

I would like to buy passing the flame, but dont want to pay out for this expensive book if its not what I am after. Is it just for beginners?

My vote is for PTF as well.  I have several other books but this is the one I tend to go back to.

I don't think you can have enough books as they all have different things to offer.  All those suggested are in my library Smiley Another good source of info is gool old You Tube & here of course.

Tried my local library today - they don't have the ones recommended by everyone unfortunately but there were a couple of others that I have requested.  My book wish list has grown substantially after reading what everyone has to say!!

I can also recommend Sal's DVDs.  There are really great, lots of information and good demonsrations.

 I am going to list the first 2 for re sale in a little while if you are interested. I have checked that reselling them is o.k. with Sal.

Me too - it's a wonderful book, I wish I'd had it some time ago as much of this I've had to work out by trial and error, sometimes with little success!  I couldn't choose between that and PTF though, they're very different and offer different techniques.
