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.

Janet Pell

Born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, Janet now lives in Filey on the beautiful Yorkshire coast, enabling her to produce work which combines her two main interests of wildlife and painting and also providing inspiration for her landscapes and seascapes. Working mainly in watercolour, she also has a keen interest in photography.

Venue: Roraima House, 40 Staithes Lane

Medium: painting

RJB Photographic

Trading as RJB Photographic, husband and wife team Richard & Janet Burdon are based in Pickering on the edge of the wonderful north Yorkshire moors. Our photography ranges from dramatic coastal sunsets to more subtle subjects like the heather on the moors, but our true passion is for the simple almost minimal winter monochrome images we shoot in the local dales. For us the stark simplicity of a lone tree in a field of snow is a work of art itself.

Venue: Dining Room 1, Trig Point

Penny Cottage Pottery

Pottery has been my hobby for 30 years. I studied at night school in Clevedon. I work from my studio nestled at the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, hand building stoneware pottery decorations and keepsakes. I love experimenting with different textures, glazes and gilding. My etsy shop name is PennyCottagePottery.

Venue: Dolphin Cottage, Church Street

Medium: Ceramics

Wold Pottery

I specialise in hand thrown , slip decorated earthenware, producing a wide range of domestic wares as well as one off pieces. The pottery is known for its fine throwing and natural colours combined with the warmth of the clay, which reflect the surrounding countryside.
