Now in its seventh year, Maldon Art Trail runs from Saturday 27th September to Saturday 4th October throughout the picturesque town centre.

The Art Trail showcases the work of local artists in shops, cafés, and public buildings in and around Maldon. From paintings and photographs to sculptures, textiles, millinery, and paper-cutting, the diverse range of work on offer proves the talent of the region’s artists.

Sculpture Trail

The Museum of Power in Langford will again be hosting the Sculpture Trail, where local sculptors will be on show in the beautiful grounds.

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.

Yarn Bombing

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.
