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.

Joan M. Taylor

Studied Art & Design at Coventry Colege of Art gaining a Fine Art Hons degree ,followed by an Art Teacher's Diploma . My interest in Art & Design has continued throughout my life, studying textiles since retiring, and working on a variety of projects embracing interior design, product design, and private painting commissions,since coming to Staithes in 1987. Creative ideas derive from my feelings and responses to the constantly changing natural environment around me. Experimentation with media and continual development of visual expression form an inherent part of my work.

Lisa Tindale

My collection of mosaics takes inspiration from the natural world. I make pieces that show the English flora and fauna, set in stone. Living in York and with an interior design background, I aim to bring innovative designs exploring texture, shape and colour to warm the heart and stir the imagination.

Venue: Kipper's Corner, High Street/35

Medium: Mosaic

Susie Tindale

I enjoy making domestic pottery and ceramic animal sculptures. I currently work mainly at my studio in Guisborough but I also spend time at Wold pottery and work under the expert guidance of Jill Christie. I have recently started helping others learn to throw pottery on the wheel and found it very rewarding.

Venue: Roraima, 40 Staithes Lane/7

Diane Todd

Diane, who is originally from Hartlepool, has lived and worked in the North York Moors National Park for over 30 years. She takes her inspiration from a love of nature, and is looking to spark the viewer’s interest in her wildlife subjects through compelling compositions, which will hopefully captivate the viewer with a lasting impression of her work. Working mainly from photographs, she also accepts commissions for pets and equine portraits, and regularly exhibits in art shows and galleries throughout North Yorkshire.

Anna Tosney

I am a Yorkshire based artist/printmaker, specialising in drypoint and monoprint techniques. Many of my pictures are set in the Yorkshire Dales, where I grew up. I love to watch sheep, cows and local wildlife to draw inspiration. In my quiet observation I attempt to re-create expressions, gait and mood.

Venue: Greystones, High Street/30

Medium: Printmaking

Sandie Turner

My early signature work involved individual animal characters and it’s always been the colour and freedom of movement in the watercolour that gives me the inspiration to create these lively characters, each with a name and personality. This is also reflected in my landscapes, seascapes and flowers and if it’s bright and colourful, it brings a certain frequency and energy of light which I hope will catch the eye of the visitor. All my work is an interpretation of the subject matter and some originals are depicted on greeting cards, bone china and prints. Commissions are also welcome.

Venue: Potter's Cottage, Chapel Yard/41
