$600-$750 - 1-1.5 hour in person lecture or performance demo, or remote discussion/lecture by Skype.
$1000 - 1-day, 6-hr workshop (plus an hour for lunch) up to 20 students. If space allows I will teach additional students at $50 per student.
$1800 - 2-day, 12-hr workshop (plus an hour for lunch) up to 20 students. If space allows I will teach additional students at $100 per student.
I am based in Oakland, CA, and am 10 minutes from the Oakland International Airport, and am able to travel from Wednesday to Wednesday for short regional tours and multi-day workshops. I have minimum billing rates based on the amount of travel required:
LOCAL under 1.5 hour car travel
UNDER 3 hours air or car travel
OVER 3 hours air or car travel
Hosts also provide or reimburse door to door transportation, baggage fees, hotel accommodations and meals on program dates.
For cross country and international bookings, I will work with you to set up a mini regional tour with other shops or guilds in cities nearby, to meet my minimum billing fees. In that case all transportation costs would be split equally between hosts. I can typically fly on Wednesdays and teach between Thursday through Tuesday for a mini regional tour.
I use my own contract and require a $200 non-refundable contract fee at the time of signing that will be deducted from the program fee. After receiving a signed contract I will provide all publicity materials and images, and workshop supply lists.
For hosts who want to sell copies of The Improv Handbook For Modern Quilters to offset the cost of my visit and/or as a benefit to their members, I can arrange for special event wholesale pricing ($13.25/copy) and free shipping and return shipping of unsold books directly through Abrams, my publisher. This option is not available for local hosts. I will bring copies to sell for my own profit when traveling to an event by car.
Due to the unique nature of improvisational patchwork, I do not provide workshop samples but will send in advance of my visit, a complimentary copy of The Improv Handbook for your guild library.
These fees will be in place through the end of 2019. Depending on demand and availability, I am open to negotiating rates and class sizes. Please make an offer that suits your budget and I will consider it.
Special rates for multi-day regional, national and international festivals and conferences are negotiable. Please contact me with a proposal.
