Booking Flights


  • Book your flights to either Buffalo, NY or Rochester, NY. The Rochester airport is the preferred airport since it is not as busy as the Buffalo airport. Both airports are the same distance from Batavia, NY, 45 minutes.

  • It would also be best if you didn’t book your departure until the day after the workshop ends, so that you can take all of your completed pieces home with you, including those that come out of the kiln during the evening of the last day. UPS and FedEx shipping is also available.
