Booking Flights

  • Book your flights to either Asheville, NC or Charlotte, NC. The Asheville airport is the preferred airport since it is closer to our location than the Charlotte airport. The Asheville airport is 1 1/4 hr drive from us and the Charlotte airport is 2 1/2 to 3 hr drive.
  • 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 shipping is also available in Burnsville, NC.


AirBnB Accomodation:

Cattail Creek Vacation Rental Accomodation:

We are actually located in the Cattail Creek Community about 20 minutes south of Burnsville, NC. There are quite a few great rental options that can be found at

You can actually walk up to our studio each morning from most of these vacation rentals……if you are so inclined.


Class participants can choose to rent a car for the duration of their stay; this can be done at either of the airports upon arrival.
We also offer to pickup & drop-off students at either airport for a fee. The fee depends upon which airport that you choose to fly into. Please let us know if you would like to us the “Oatka Glass Taxi Service” when you register for the class and we can give you a price.
