Autumn of Art at the Maeldune!



Our programme of Exhibitions continues apace; we celebrated our part in the annual Maldon Art Trail with an original and exciting mixed-media display of the vibrant artwork of Plume Academy Students.


Following that, we have  a solo show from the renowned artist Michael Blooman – a wonderful exhibition of Watercolours and Original Lino Cut Prints made by hand on his Albion printing press.  Many of the works on show and for sale have been made especially for this exhibition and feature Maldon’s iconic Sailing Barges and our maritime heritage.







Next we welcome our annual visit to the Maeldune from Tollesbury Art Potter Peter Deans and Friends.  This show always delights with its varied selection of quality hand-crafted pottery, jewellery and paintings – a great opportunity to find some early Christmas presents!  This exhibition runs from 27th October until 14th November.


Christmas is Coming!

2017 concludes with our famous Maeldune Christmas Shop! It runs from Saturday 18th November up to and including Saturday 23rd December.  We will have our usual Christmassy display, with a mix of much-loved regulars and exciting newcomers too …. This runs alongside our permanent year-round Craft Gift Shop – so we will be absolutely ‘chock-full’ of tempting gifts both for yourself and your friends and family.  


All Members of our thriving Friends Group are invited to a special Christmas Shopping Evening on Friday 17th November 7pm to 9pm – for a sneak preview of our Christmas Shop and a great opportunity to beat the crowds when we open it to the public the following day!

And of course we will be taking part in the annual Maldon Vintage Christmas Fayre on 30th November 6pm – 9pm.  Festive fun and treats and we will be open for all your Christmas Shopping – unique lovely things made by our own local craftspeople and artists!


Regular Displays

Our regular displays continue alongside, with our partnering with two local sister heritage venues; the Maldon Museum – ‘The Museum in the Park’ and Burnham-on-Crouch and District Museum.  Also The Maldon Society presents an extensive photographic display from their Archive.  And we celebrate the tradition of the local Carnival with many nostalgic photographs of Carnivals past.  And of course the wonderful Maldon Embroidery – 42ft of sumptuous design and vibrant colour – as alive now as when it was made 26 years ago!  


We are FREE to enter, and open Tuesday-Saturday, 11-4.  We look forward to seeing you soon!


We are a Registered Charity and every purchase and donation you make, helps us to continue our work in promoting our local Heritage and encouraging the work of our local Artists and Craftspeople.
