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.

Geof J. Radley

Geof studied fine art at the Laird School of Art, Birkenhead, followed by the University of Central Lancashire. For Geof, each watercolor is the culmination of a series of studies that try to understand the form, shape, texture and nature of a scene, and to express these in a way that realises the hidden beauty within. Not just what you see, but also what you don’t see.

Venue: Hampdon Cottage, Chapel Yard/43

Medium: Watercolour

Jane Robertson

I moved to Staithes four years ago to focus my life around my art, and to explore my potential in various media, inspired by the beauty of the North Yorkshire coast and moors. So far so good. Drawing, jewellery making, pastels, photography and paper-cutting. At the moment I am concentrating on my paper-cut art, using one piece of paper and several scalpels to produce incredibly intricate interpretations of the natural world, and also, contrastingly, my 'Bad Alice' series. I'm self taught and proud of it - I will never stop teaching and learning and living. Until I die.

Venue: Barrass House, Barrass Square/74

Medium: Paper Cutting, Jewellery
