Historic Macclesfield

The beautiful Adelaide Hills town of Macclesfield sits 50 kilometres southeast of Adelaide on the lands of the traditional custodians, the Peramangk people. It was established in 1840 and many of the original buildings sit proudly on the main street. These days Macclesfield is a vibrant, artistic community.

After returning to South Australia in 2022, I was searching for a market to sell my art, and the monthly ‘Maccy Market’ charmed me immediately. I was welcomed with open arms (like those of three brothers – ha ha), and of course, the architecture beckoned to be sketched.

It was wonderful to take time to get to know the history of the town by sketching these buildings, and I hope their whimsical nature will bring the community much joy in the future.

Macclesfield 2024 Calendar

Perfect as a gift for the tourist in your life, a watercolour enthusiast, or someone who loves historic architecture, I’d suggest buying two because they’re too good to give away.

Plus, you won’t miss that all important ‘Maccy Market’ day, with the dates printed in the 2024 Macclesfield Historic Buildings calendar for your convenience. Selected Community Events are also included.

Historic buildings

One of the ways I express my creativity each year is drawing buildings. I don’t know why it’s buildings. It just is. Maybe it’s about shelter, home, protection, and containment, who knows.

Maybe it’s about the craftsmanship and the skill it took to render (‘scuse the pun) these old beauties into a community’s consciousness and fabric back in the day.

Maybe it’s about the history of all the lives they’ve contained and watched walking, riding, then driving by.

Whatever it is, it’s a pleasure to reveal my 2024 offering. Here’s ‘Macclesfield in Watercolour’ – Calendar 2024!
