Margarete Heymann (1899-1990) entered the Bauhaus School of Arts in Weimar in 1920. Refusing to comply with Walter Gropius' view that female students should concentrate on weaving, she became the school's second female ceramics student. In 1923, she founded Haël Workshops, employing more than 120 people manufacturing her modern ceramic designs. In 1935, the Nazi government forced her to sell her factory to Hedwig Bollhagen. She moved to England by the aid of Ambrose Heal, founder of Heals.
