Getting Here

Basic Tile Making Experience

Our Tile studio is located one mile east from the main town of Avalon.   The road is a flat, coastal and scenic walk that takes about 20 minutes.  Seabirds, sealife and the occasional Bald Eagle can be spotted along the route. There can be a bit of vehicle traffic as well so watch the kids.  We are in a light industrial area without great signage so please see the image of our distinctive “Blue Tile” signs we will place at roadside to help you find us.  Verizon is the only phone carrier that works in this immediate area so make sure you know where to go before you head out.  Your booking confirmation will have a day of contact number you are free to text to obtain a last minute map.
