We came for the tour of the museum and the ceramic workshop but unfortunately due to pandemic restrictions the only were able to provide the workshop which was really cool.
We paid 60pln which for the workshop only felt like a bit too much (not sure if the regular price is 60 or more including the tour though).
Included in the price you get to paint one ceramic piece and if you are into it, every additional piece you paint costs either 10 or 20 pln (depending on the size of the item); then they ship the good to your home after they put them in the oven for the final cook.
Excellent experience .

I arrived to Boleslawiec on a mission. I previously left a tour in Europe without any Polish pottery and was not going to make the same mistake again! I spent my first day visiting all of the potteries. I loved the designs at Manufaktura and the customer service at all three Manufaktura locations was hands-down, the best! I bought so much pottery from Manufaktura that all of my children, grandchildren, and future grandchildren will always have a place at my table! The factory tour made me appreciate it even more and I highly recommend! Thank you to the wonderful staff in all three locations! It’s clear that you all are passionate about Polish pottery and I appreciate your help!

If you like Bolesławiec pottery and are in the area, don't miss this little factory. You can take the tour for as little as 5 PLN per person (!) and show with your own eyes how these pretty pieces are made. The guide (Basia) was excellent! You can even meet the authors of the unique patterns! There are several stoneware factories in Bolesławiec but only this one gives tours. Each factory apart from the standard patterns has their own unique ones and you can of course buy the plates, mugs and lots of other products on site. Well worth a visit.

We took the 30 min tour of the pottery factory. I was very impressed with the work that goes into making the pottery. It made me appreciate the pieces I selected later in the store.

We got there on Sunday and got a tour to ourselves. It was fascinating and informative. Our tour guide was funny and enjoyable. We got several pieces of quality pottery from there for a good price.

When friends asked why I was visiting Poland, I somewhat jokingly replied, "because I love their pottery." I told JayWay Travel, organizers of our trip, that I wanted to see the real deal - a factory - not a gift shop - this is where they sent us. Of the 250 employees, 85 are women (one man) hand painting the pottery. Some are designs unique to this factory, others are designs any factory can produce. Major exports are to the US, but it is ghastly expensive here. We were reserved for a 12:30 pm English speaking tour and the staff acknowledged that. However, a large English tour was set for 1 pm. Could we wait? Unfortunately, we had a private driver, and that wouldn't work. They were great - graciously gave us a private tour on time. Their discounted section had patterns which were among my favorites. Oh, for another suitcase!

I have been coming to Poland to or purchase pottery for 15 years and this was the first time I got to this active manufacturing museum and store. It was a little difficult to find as it was off the beaten path but absolutely a "do not miss"!

Once you find the right direction you can easily follow the signs and find your way there.
We would highly recommend this pottery, make sure you go for a tour! It's very inexpensive and the girl who did our tour was lovely, she knew so much and we got a lot of background information. The shop was nice too.

Really enjoyed the factory tour. Took my almost 4 year old which is always nerve racking to have a young child around so many breakables but the tour guide was great!

The lady that gave the tour was very friendly and spoke English, very helpful when you can’t speak the local language. The shop was clean and the pottery pieces were way to get to. A must stop for those looking for pottery.
