Paint Your Own Delft Blue Pottery

Hands down one of the best, and most underutilized experiences in Delft is to paint your own piece of Delft Blue Pottery at De Delftse Pauw. There are two shops in Delft where you can go see how Delft Blue is made. De Delftse Pauw is the smaller family-owned operation. (Read about our visit here.) […]
