Be part of our story
The Frederick Book Arts Center is on a mission to revive the art of hand-crafted quality. We help turn your ideas and dreams into something real; something that you can actually hold, touch, and feel. By empowering the community we hope to revive the age of the artisan; where quality ruled over quantity and everything was crafted with a personalized touch.
But we cannot achieve this alone. We need your help.
Your support cultivates an environment of learning, growth, and development. With your support we will:
Bring learning opportunities to more K-12 classes.
Continue to provide excellent facilities for artists and the general public to use, learn, and develop their craft.
Provide a diverse experience of engaging events—classes, workshops, artist talks, shows, and more.
Continue to provide a wide variety of specialized tools and equipment available for rent.
Establish a safe and accessible place for the community where an individual can freely express themselves without the fear of discrimination.
We have already accomplished so much in the short time of our opening. With your assistance we will achieve so much more. Our mission is to spread the knowledge and passion for creation throughout the Greater Frederick Community. We look forward to bringing your vision to life!
