Haywards Heath Ceramics Group

This year is the 40th anniversary of the founding of our group and our ‘in person’ talks will begin again in September at St Wilfrids Church, Haywards Heath from 10.15-12 noon. Annual joining fee is only £45. In the meantime we are enjoying lectures via Zoom.

Are you interested in learning more about the history and manufacture of ceramics, glass, and enamels?  Join us!

HHCG is an informal, very friendly group who meet once a month to listen to talks by experts, including collectors, curators, archaeologists, auctioneers, dealers, and social historians many of whom are well known in the media. Members interested in ceramics at all levels of knowledge are always made very welcome. For detailed information of our membership and any other information regarding our Group, please email: enquiries@hhcg.org.uk for the attention of Mrs Sheila Gaskell. 

Our next talk via Zoom is to be held on Thursday 12 May 2022 when we will welcome our colleague, Mr Tony Gaskell.

Tony is a long standing member of Haywards Heath Ceramics Group with his wife Sheila and an important contributor to the running and technical organising of the club. In his own words, he is best described as an “enthusiastic amateur” with a personal obsession with the story surrounding West Pans.

West Pans is a relatively small site in East Lothian which for a short period in the 18th century was home to the manufacture of Scottish porcelain.  Events before and after will also be included in Tony’s very personal account.

We look forward to hearing about “West Pans Porcelain – A Personal Perspective”
