Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

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

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!

Her art works range from botanicals to landscapes, gothic to large scale murals, as she implements a variety of mediums. She loves being outdoors to capture the intricacy and vibrancy that nature offers her creativity.    Using sustainable methods, Wendi’s alchemy skills allow her to create her own charcoal, inks and paints from local flora and fauna for her sketching and painting purposes. She is a founding member of ‘The Art Crowd’ and a great supporter of creativity within the local community, running numerous workshops for all age groups.
