Hi I am from Australia, most of our major towns cities have lapidary Clubs and a lot of these clubs do teach faceting.

if you have a lapidary club close by you should contact and ask, they should put you on the right track

good luck

I agree that personal help is best but if you have good visualization skills and a good text like JeffGraham’s,you can teach yourself. .Tho I ha email 'to read it, I understand that Berbst’s book is great and .ay email someone will comment on that. Don’t be intimidated and start off with glass or an easy synthetic.
Good Luck! You can always ask questions on the USFG list or one of the Faceters Facebook groups.
