I bought a groupon deal, went on a tour and painted stoneware. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The selection to paint stoneware is limited but you can upgrade at an extra cost to paint something else.

It cost $8/ person for 20 minutes lousy tour. We went at 1:30pm tour on the 25th June. On the website it didn't mention anything about the cost of the tour. We walked through hot dirty work place. Our tour guide Kayla was nice, but she couldn't tell us much about the place because there was nothing much to say.... More

We took a tour and painted stoneware at the Louisville Stoneware site as a Girl Scout activity. Steve was an excellent tour guide. My two daughters really enjoyed learning about the process and painting their own pottery. It will be shipped home to us at a later date-something they are really looking forward to. We will be making this a... More

My wife and I took our visiting Nashville friends to Louisville Stoneware, and they loved it. We also discovered how much Stoneware's recent remodeling added to one of Louisville's oldest continuous businesses. The place is filled with historical exhibits and a mini-museum, in addition to all of the well-crafted stoneware that is available for purchase. Staff is friendly and helpful.... More

Hi again, it's the travelin' agents from Consumers Travel World. Very old factory on a side street. They should put up signs indicating that there is a large parking lot on premises. Not knowing that, we parked up the block. A lovely young lady gave us a brief and informative tour where we got to see stoneware from the clay... More

First off, a word of caution: if you're using a GPS to find this place, you're going to feel like it let you down. Right before you're tempted to turn around (and that would be about the time you make a couple sharp turns and go under a bridge), press on! Louisville Stoneware is tucked away on an industrial type... More
