Travel / Lodging

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.
  • You may also want to plan on spending an extra day or more in the area since there are many fabulous area attractions (Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville), hiking, music, festivals, and restaurants & craft breweries to enjoy.


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 in Burnsville or around Cattail Creek Community.

Cattail Creek Community Vacation Rentals



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


Class participants can choose to rent a car for the duration of their stay if they are not driving their own car; this can be done at either Asheville or Charlotte airports upon arrival.

PLEASE NOTE: Choose a car that you will feel comfortable driving on gravel roads. The last 3.5 miles of road are gravel and some on private gravel roads.
