The new exhibition will be called ‘The Enchanted Garden’ so I’m very busy making some favourite 3D flowers as well as painting an upcycled coffee/children’s table with a Mexican flower theme inspired by my favourite holidays in Mexico.
I’m sure we are all looking forward to getting back to a near normal life again so please do come and enjoy a day out in Maldon - plenty of eateries ‘inside’ and ‘out’ depending on the weather. The Maeldune Heritage Centre is in the main high street and also home to the famous Maldon Millenium Embroidery which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. It is the 850th anniversary of Maldon’s Royal Charter as well. More information is available from the Tourist Office situated within the Centre.
The site of the Maeldune Centre was formerly the Church of St. Peter in 1180 hence the West Tower. The church later became redundant and fell into a state of disrepair until it was rebuilt in the 1690s by Dr. William Plume as a library. Then in 1817 it was extended to accommodate the new National School until 1840.
‘The Enchanted Garden’ exhibition will take place from Thursday, 19th August until Saturday, 4th September 2021 Opening times are 11am - 4pm. Free entry. Closed Sundays and Mondays
