Factory Tour · Paint & Pottery Studio
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.
