Re: Workshop fees charged
Harold Roth provided some good insights to the issue, and finished with the best: "What their cut is depends on the store, though."
I admit I have no experience with workshops, but, maybe answering the art centers' question with the amount you want to make from a session, and ask them how they operate. "So, my fee for a two hour session is, usually, $200.00 (or whatever amount you want to walk away with) . However, I'm willing to work with you on figuring out a fair threshold for you, me, and the students/attendees."
