Work directly with Sarah to learn a new skill or discuss and work through a project that you have been eager to create. After purchasing this first hour of instruction, your information will be given directly to your instructor, who will reach out to you to discuss the details of your one-on-one. Together you will work to schedule a good time and date to meet at the Frederick Book Arts Center where you will have access to our equipment and the ability to purchase any consumable supplies you may need. If your one-on-one exceeds the first hour, you will be able to pay for the remaining time at the end of your instruction through our Point of Sale System in the Center. If you would like to speak to Sarah about your ideas before booking your first hour, please email email@example.com.
