PAAUW the delft blue factory, Delft

4.5
#1 of 10 in Tours in Delft
Paint a tile or clog at PAAUW the delft blue factory, offering free guided tours for visitors interested in learning more about a major local art form. This family-owned studio with a shop remains best known for its traditional hand-painted Delftware (a.k.a Delft pottery, recognized by its blue-and-white designs). The multilingual guides can show you every step of the process, but if you prefer a hands-on approach to learning, join a workshop and try painting a tile on your own. Hand-painted items must be glazed and fired, so you'll be able to pick up your own creation in a week--or have it shipped to your home address. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Delft fast, fun, and easy.

  • Take the time to appreciate the effort & detail that goes into these beautiful pieces of pottery! Is it something unique & you green understand why these pieces actually cost the high prices that they actually do. The attention to detail is incredible. Definitely worth the time on the tour is you have the time
  • Nice, free guided tour of the small pottery factory. The tour guide was one of the staff(it's a family business), a very nice guy, gave us a very nice tour, showed us different steps of making delft blue pottery. It's definitely worth visiting if you ever find yourself in delft
