Dear Chris from Cantello Studios,
Since you seem to be in a commercial or manufacturing situation you are =
being asked to give up a days productivity.
Therefore it seems reasonable to expect those people attending your =
workshop to reimburse you for the loss of productivity for the time you =
spend with them.
On the other hand, If you charge nothing but take a large amount of =
stock to sell so that they have examples or your work, then you may be =
equally well rewarded.

There were two elements to to original question that would sort of at
1. You appear to have a semi-monopoly on this technique in your area (at
least I inferred that to be the case). While in fact anyone could learn
how to do it with a little experimentation, or maybe even looking in the
clayart archives, if you show them, then you may get copycats in your
area. I once took a new product to our annual guild Christmas show and
it sold out in the first 30 minutes. At the next sale guess how many
people had similar items?
2. On the other hand our guild here likes to have mini workshops about
every other month as part of the guild meeting. Guild members generally
provide these demonstrations and we try to make them interesting. I
almost got the idea that this was maybe what they were asking you to do.
It wasn't really clear from your post how involved you were with this
