The Basics

The Delftware tin-glazed pottery technique hasn’t changed much since the 17th century—each piece requires the craftsmanship of a master painter to produce the very specific look this brand is known for. The showroom and minimuseum showcases a wide range of authentic Delftware, which is always entirely hand-painted, in a historic Dutch building overlooking a canal.

DIY Delftware

De Delftse Pauw offers workshops to visitors wishing to learn more about Delftware and even paint a piece on their own. Led by a professional painter, the workshops include a Delft tile, though the glazing and firing process means you’ll have to wait a week to pick yours up. For an extra fee, the factory can ship tiles back to your home country.
