Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

Alison Jenkinson

I studied a BA (Hons) in Art and Design with QTS at St. Martins College in Lancaster, specialising in printmaking. During my years at university I explored a variety of printmaking techniques. During my spare time, I now enjoy working on experimental projects, printing with varieties of texture, natural and man made materials, layers of colour, fine art and using text. I have also created soft furnishings and wall murals with varying themes, using textile techniques, calligraphy and illustration.

Venue: Pilgrim Cottage, High Barrass/79

Medium: Printmaking, Decoration

An avid collector of bygone images of Staithes and the surrounding area, I have attended all of the festivals so far and will be once again exhibiting some rare old photographs in the atmospheric 'Old Black Lion' pub on Staithes High Street, just down from the Emporium gift shop. There will be some exiting new finds on display. This is both an exhibition and a sales arena.

Venue: Black Lion Inn, High Street/31
