I was initially a self taught luthier until deciding to pursue it further and going to school to learn from the best, outside of Minneapolis. My path in lutherie has sent me in all directions of DYI and woodworking. I have a strong foundation in acoustic guitars, but well rounded in all stringed instruments construction/repair alike.
Networking and meeting new people is everything. With out exposure to new people and new things, it would be difficult to progress at anything. Makerspace is a source for picking up new ideas and techniques.
