Feeling Blue? Looking to escape the winter doldrums? Join us for a day in Delft, where you can learn some history, enjoy fellowship with friends, and create your own masterpiece all inside a warm and cozy building.
At Delft Pottery de Delftse Pauw, (The Delft Peacock) we will discover how the world-famous Delft Blue porcelain is made. A professional guide will show us around the pottery and will explain each step in the production of Delftware.
After the tour, we will begin the tile workshop which will take place in a painter’s room. A professional painter will guide us through the process of painting our own Delft tile. Unfortunately, we will not be taking a completed tile with us that day. The tiles will be collected, so that they can be glazed and fired. After 7 days, Holly Savoie will pick up all the completed tiles. You will be notified by email when your finished piece is ready to be picked up at the AWC Clubhouse.
We will be traveling via public transportation, so please bring your ov chipkaart and money for lunch. Even though it says free, the cost of the Workshop is: 29.50 Euros
You can pay by PIN at the AWC Clubhouse or by bank transfer to:
