I came across this fabulous blog from South America! Patternmakers are visual/intellectual/sculpture artisits, engineers too!! This visual for where the cuts, and manipulations occur on the block are invaluable. It's a free educational blog (in spanish). Don't know spanish, no problem. The commentary is usually only a description, the schematics are the teachers.
You must have a basic knowledge of patternmaking, curiosity, perseverance and a good basic patternmaking book. I recommend this one below.
Here is the reason, It is simple and takes you through the very basics. That's all you need if you are a novice. There are other fabulous books and if you love patternmaking as I do, you'll buy them. Start with this one..it's not confusing.
