Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

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

This year it's 15-17 September 2023.

During the weekend the doors of cottages in the village are thrown open as pop-up art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. 

The heritage of Staithes is celebrated through a programme of walks, talks, historic photographs, film shows, and a demonstration of how to make a lobster pot!

I am a printmaker and painter based in Ramsgill in Upper Nidderdale. My work all stems from observations of nature, most sourced on long walks where I make drawings plein air and then expand on them back in the studio. My oil paintings are driven by mark making, light, atmosphere and season. I don’t use brushes and paint in impasto and sgraffito technique. My prints are mostly screenprint, but I also enjoy experimenting with solar plates and drypoint etching
