A look at post-program surveys reveals that Berea’s craft workshops have benefitted local motels, restaurants and shops every year since the classes began. For example, a comparison of the summer Festival of Learnshops (FOL) 2012 versus 2016 reveals:

FOL participants who stayed overnight in Berea in 2012: 37

FOL participants who stayed overnight in Berea in 2016: 121

Learnshop participants who ate in Berea restaurants in 2012: 114

Learnshop participants who ate in Berea restaurants in 2016: 307

FOL students who shopped in Berea in 2012: 92

FOL students who shopped in Berea in 2016: 258

Direct income to artists for Berea’s Festival of Learnshops 2016 three-week series: $81,551
