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 one hundred members but still enjoy a very intimate and friendly atmosphere. 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 popular Discovery Day provides an opportunity for our members to enjoy a more in-depth look into a particular subject and share a delicious lunch. Our next Discovery Day is on 21st November 2019 when we will welcome Jane Gardiner, Senior Tutor at Sotheby’s Institute introducing “Continental Glass of the 16th,17th and 18th Centuries” and “English Glass of the 17th and 18th Centuries”.¬†
