Relative to the question about fee structures for workshops, a
strategy I have often used is this ... define a simple equation: a (my
per hour charge) X b (the number of persons attending) X c (the
number of hours of the workshop) = the fee. Or (a minimum of) $25
per hour X (for example) 10 persons attending X (for example) 2
hours = $500.00. If the fee seems too steep for a group or
organization we then negotiate. IMHO this exercise provides a "fair"
basis for discussions.

Hope this helps.
