    What to Expect
    At a start time to suit your schedule, make your own way to Rijswijk (Delft Noord) — a 5-minute train ride from The Hague ­ — and stroll to Delftse Pauw, one of the few Dutch factories that still continue the tradition of hand-painted Delft pottery 

    Alongside a guide, you’ll take a tour of the factory and see the production process of the classic blue-and-white pottery first hand. Break for a hot beverage and traditional Dutch biscuit before trying your hand at creating Delft pottery in a painting session.

    Under the guidance of a professional artist, you’ll learn the intricate techniques required to paint delicate blue designs on white Delft pottery. Unleash the artist within as you complete your project, which will then be fired in a kiln and shipped to your home the following week.

    Then, visit the showroom to admire pristine pieces of Delft pottery. Receive discounted rates if you purchase any additional items, and arrange shipping to your home at your own expense.

    Nice to see one of the two remaining Delft Potteries. The production process is concisely explained and then you can visit the painting shop and chat freely with the artists. We enjoyed our visit !

    We really enjoyed the tour and its a great place to pick up some of the famous Delft pottery. But you really need to have a personal interest or appreciate the artistry. Its cool you get to see the artists performing their craft and the tour of the factory floor is neat.

    My friend and I scheduled the private tour and painting class and we absolutely loved it. I was really nervous because I have no skills but the master painter broke it down where you could follow and my piece ended up being much better than I expected.
