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.
