The 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. We now have over a hundred members but still enjoy a very intimate and friendly atmosphere.
Many of our members have extensive collections, others the odd pieces, but we all share the same enthusiasm for the subject.
During the year we have a selection of speakers, some very well known, others not so much, but all experts in their fields.
Our very popular Discovery Day is an opportunity for our members to enjoy a more in depth look into a particular subject and share a delicious lunch.
Once or twice a year the Group visit a house or museum which has a porcelain collection of note.
