This possible idea came to my mind: 
How about workshop fees are cheaper if you are a member:  Member fees vs nonmember fees. I know a lot of museums/zoos do that. 

 Maybe members can showcase what they learned/did on a Membership board -can be a online board or an actual pin up board with pictures etc to create more of a community. 

I think if teachers are teaching one class/workshop, no requirement to be a member but if they are there a lot teaching then they should be members.

Hi all, I wanted to ask you how do you do it with the workshops. 

1. How do you divide the winnings between the makerspace and the teacher by percentage?

2. Are all the teachers members? Is it a requirement?

3. Are workshops for members only?

4. If teachers are not members and workshops are not members only, how do the people that go to the workshop relate to the makerspace. How can they make community if they only go for some classes. 

5. Last question, how can one establish a relationship between workshops and memberships or members, so they are not two separate things. Sometimes people who come to our workshops think this is just a building the teacher is renting, they go to class and never come back to the makerspace. We give them tours and we even talk about the makerspace when there is a workshop but they don't have the need to become members, because they can just come to the workshop and never come back. It's difficult to create a community that way
