Delft Pottery De Delftse Pauw, Delft

Paint a tile or clog at Delft Pottery De Delftse Pauw, 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.

    The tour lasted a little more than 5 minutes. It was our short told how the pottery was cast painted and glazed and before we knew it we were in the shop, probably took you so short because we were co-op and after a larger group of us arrived. All in all, not worth it, but it's also free.

    Very informative tour, the place is not close to other activities/events in Delft, but, if you are interested in the genuine created Delftware, then this is the place to go.

    Friendly staff, short factory tour, and certainly a shop. The factory is basically one floor with crafstmen working and greeting the visitors. Don't expect any piece be less than 35 euro (Apr, 2016). What you in pictures here is pretty much what you will see during the visit. Walk from Market is a good 30 min walk. In a good weather it's a nice stroll. If you are looking to something on bigger scale visit another factory - at the other side of train station.

    A very nice place to include if you are touring Delft. You are gonna get a free entrance and free. Our guests from L.A. including us were very surprised and happy how excellent they provide the guided tour even if it was just 10mins plus the staff are really friendly.

Where to stay in Delft

The most popular accommodations in Delft cluster in the historical town center, a compact area heavily booked on the weekends and during the summer. Make your arrangements well ahead if you wish to stay there, or explore the guesthouses near the main train station if you prefer to travel without prior reservations. The city's long- and short-term rental houses, which often cost slightly more than centrally located hotel rooms, offer an affordable alternative for families in need of more space and privacy.
