Haywards Heath Ceramics Group

UPDATE: 9 July 2021 – Clair Hall continues to be used as a vaccine centre and therefore our talks are continuing via Zoom, for invited members only.

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. 

A little background: Haywards Heath Ceramics Group was formed in 1983 by three ceramics enthusiasts. Their aim was to study the history and manufacture of pottery, porcelain, glass and enamels in all their diverse aspects. Over the years, the Group has thrived. Many of our Group have extensive collections, others just the odd pieces, but we all share the same enthusiasm for the subject. All our speakers are experts in their field, many of whom are very well known.

Our next Zoom talk entitled “Kakiemon Porcelain: From Pleasure Quarters to Palaces”, will be held on Thursday 9th September 2021 when we look forward to welcoming Alexandra Aguilar who is an Asian Art specialist with particular expertise in Japanese works of art. She is a leading auctioneer and regularly appears on The Antiques Roadshow in her capacity as an expert in netsuke and glass.¬†Alexandra studied at the University of Burgundy before completing her Masters Degree in Japanese Art History at the University of Edinburgh.
