That's very true. For every hour I have as an apprentice I have at least ten hours either watching videos or reading. It's good to find a video and follow the pattern they are teaching. After that you can modify or change the wrap you learned to make your own wrap. Get yourself either the smallest diameter pvc pipe or wooden dowel you can find. Use them to practice your wrap. When you have it the way you want then you can practice putting the CP and then the epoxy. It's nice to have something physical to look back at.
Also don't waste your money buying thread online. Go to Jo-Ann fabric and buy Sulky brand thread. If you go on the Jo-Ann website you can sign up to get coupons emailed to you.
This link will open a PDF that will help you a lot to understand how to wrap patterns.
