from the lecturer 
Dexterity and clumsiness are only for the first day, and after that, if you keep building with all your heart, anyone will improve.
Also, it can be said that those who train at home for even an hour a day will improve their skills much faster.
Since a ball with many silk threads is moved, it is not a detailed work,It is important to assemble generously.
At first, you will slowly assemble while looking at the assembling diagram, but eventually you will be able to assemble without looking at the assembling diagram.
