Magazine 133

Membership of the Shelley Group brings many benefits:-

Colour Magazine                                                            

You will receive a quarterly colour magazine full of interesting articles. The magazine is published in March, June, September and December and members are encouraged to contribute to it whether it is only a few lines or a longer article.

Invitations to Social Gatherings

You will be invited to attend regional gatherings organized by your regional representative. Many are held in members’ homes where you will be able to see their collection, whilst other events have included picnics, beach parties, lunches and visits. Other gatherings are held as coffee-breaks at popular collectors fairs. Members meet in the cafe for a much-needed rest and show their purchases. Look out for details on the "News" and "Diary" sections.
The annual Shelley Weekend combines our annual general meeting with social events, talks and workshops, an exhibition, and a silent auction. This event also gives members a chance to meet other members with similar collecting interests.


 Information Service
Magnifying Glass
Our research officer is able to research patterns, shapes and designs, in fact any Shelley or Wileman questions you may have. If you have any questions we will attempt to find the answer. Please see the link to "Information Service" which you can find under the "Contact Us" button at the top of each page.

Free entry in the Magazine Classified Section

The Magazine will offer you a classified section in which you can advertise to try and find items you may want to purchase, or indeed items that you may want to sell. We have recently also launched a finding service which aims to unite members with pieces to sell with members looking for those pieces to buy.

Shelley shop

You will receive discounts on selected books through the Shelley Shop. You will also be able to purchase various Shelley publications on special areas of interest, giftware items, lapel pins, stationery, Christmas cards, and an annual calendar all featuring Shelley and Wileman items. We are also able to offer our members discounts on other ceramic publications on a regular basis. Have a look at the "Shelley Shop" page to see what is available.

Complimentary Fair Tickets

Free tickets to the "Antiques for Everyone" fair at the NEC are regularly issued to members through the quarterly magazine.

Membership Fees

Membership fees for the current year (up to April 2023) are listed below. If you are joining after April you will be sent all the magazines that have been issued in that year. However, if you are joining after January you can choose to join for a 15 month period, but you will not receive any previously issued magazines for that year.
