Maeldune Heritage Centre
We will be displaying art works in the Maeldune Heritage Centre, which is a fabulous place for art displays. The centre is home to the Maldon Embroidery, a 42′ long masterpiece created to celebrate 1000 years of Maldon’s history from the battle of Maldon in 991 to its unveiling in 1991. It also contains an art gallery, gift shop selling art and craft items, and many fascinating items collected from local archaeological digs.
We heard there was talk of yarn bombing in Maldon for the Art Trail week. Of course, we can’t be certain and we couldn’t possibly comment. Imagine a Maldon dressed up in colourful knitwear though.
Young People’s Craft Workshops 2014
The hugely popular FREE Children and Young People’s Craft Workshop is back and will be held in Maldon Town Hall on Saturday 27th September between 10am – 4pm. We have some fantastic artists lined up this year to help young people exercise their imaginations and create something to take home. Refreshments and Cakes will also be available.
