Number of Participants: A minimum of 6 participants are required. Ideally, for a good learning situation, the class size should be 8 or 9 (maximum 14). It is better to arrange two separate workshops with seven participants in one and eight in the other, than one workshop with 15 participants.
Workshop Fee: The fee is $100.00 per person for CCBC members and $200.00 per person for non-members. The club must therefore guarantee a minimum payment of $600.00 for the workshop. If less than 6 participants show up, the cost of holding the workshop is still $600.00. If you have 5 or less participants registered the workshop may be rescheduled or cancelled.
