Even today, every single item of KPM Berlin porcelain is created by hand right in the heart of the capital city. The historic manufactory is the oldest craft enterprise still producing in Berlin. If you feel like switching off from your everyday routine and doing something really creative, sharing a special experience with your friends or organising an exclusive team event, then we might have just what you’re looking for.
At our KPM DIY-Manufactory, which has been the main attraction of the KPM exhibition since summer 2017, you will learn everything there is to know about the manufacture of our porcelain, from the raw clay to the finished cup, and get a glimpse behind the scenes at the KPM Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (Royal Porcelain Manufactory) in Berlin. It is an opportunity for visitors – adults and children alike – to become clay makers in their own right and to gain fascinating insights into the art of porcelain production
Generally all workshops are supervised by long-serving KPM clay makers or painters. Your very personal KPM piece is fired and glazed on our premises and can be picked up a few weeks after your visit. If you paint a plate, you can even take it away with you and fire it in your own home oven. Book a workshop with us and enjoy your own very special manufactory experience!
