Hi Phil

I can tell you how we organize it (at hackerspace voidwarranties Antwerp).
We don't have the problem of having too many people over at a workshop, 
so I don't know a solution for that.

But as for price, most of the time we say members: free, non-members: €5 
(about $6,5). If we have a really expensive speaker, or some material 
will be provided (like components for some soldering workshop) we charge 
more for both members and non-members. Members from other hackerspaces 
pay the same as our own hackerspace.
