Thank you Cath, and Thank you Reana so much for getting back to me, and promptly at that !

When I first started teaching workshops I was doing it on a donation basis for next to nothing. That's naturally what I'm inclined towards
:)

However, since I've been traveling and teaching, and also because of the cost of raw, organic superfood ingredients, (which my chocolates are packed with), the cost tend to add up... So I've decided to continue traveling and teaching, but have to charge more of a fee.

If I'm able to get organized enough with a professional paid gig event, and have additional time in London, I'll keep in mind offering something similar to what you referenced to the group. Thanks for clarifying that for me.

I'm actually familiar with Inspiral, and have always wanted to go there. They unfortunately don't have the capacity to host me there they recently told me. However, I've never heard of Vitao, and am already reaching out to them...
thanks again for everything~

FYI Vantra is closed now. Vitao on Wardour Street is still thriving!

Hello Micah,
 
Thank you for letting us know about yourself and your workshops
 
Just to give you an idea about our meetup.
I set up the North London Vegan organic rawtreat meetup over 4yrs ago. We used to hold regular  events in a large hall, we hired, on the edge of North London/ Hertfordshire and anything from  around 20 to 30 + people, would attend. We would usually have a presenter for 1½ hrs, and the rest of the time would be given to meeting, mingling and sharing raw potluck. We would charge around £8 per person and the presenter would receive anything from £5 to £35, depending on how many people attended. They were none profit making events and we would just about make enough to cover costs.
The presenters chose to be there mainly as a platform and would give a demonstration and taste of what they do
.. and then inform people of their forth coming/workshops events services etc.   
 
In the past year, I have taken time off from organising these events and they are currently being hosted in a house in North London
.. mainly raw potluck events..along with an occasional low price workshop..as you can see on the site
 
‘Inspiral’ in Camden Town N.London and ‘Vantra’ in Central London come to mind - restaurants..that may be available to hold your events
and if you google, you may come up with others…wish I could help more, but I  am less involved these days
 
I wish you luck with finding a venue
 
Warm regards
Reana

Greetings from humid North Carolina, U.S.
 
My name is Micah, and I'm coming to the UK in November to teach a course on raw vegan chocolate making.
 
I've had a good response from my Summer workshops I taught in Paris and near Zurich.
 
Currently I'm seeking a venue in, or around London for at least one event.
 
 
I've been looking on HappyCow.net for good stores locally that might be able to host my workshop. Then it occurred to me to reach out to the group since you all would be more formidable on which shops/restaurants, or cafes would have a good space for said workshop.
 
A couple notes about my workshops:
 
* typically attendance is around 10-25 people per workshop
* a kitchen is unnecessary as I love to show how to make these by hand with bowls
and warm water
* my fees are around 45-50£ per person, so a venue that with a rental fee for the space may change my pricing
* I come with an open-heart, ready to share, and also to learn
:)
 
If anyone has an idea of a great venue, please don't hesitate to share with me ~ 
Thank you very much in advance~
