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!

Lou Gilmore-George

< Back to Artists

Intrigued and inspired by her surroundings, Lou’s work is random, and emotional. Bursting with innate organic form, its sculptural and poetic designs take on many a diverse range. Abstract, experimental and potentially dysfunctional, Lou uses an array of entangled processes within her work, creating unique and bold jewellery designs. Using traditional Gold-smithing techniques, Lou likes to let the material react and evolve organically, creating beautiful bespoke and one off pieces. Highly influenced by nature, texture and tone.

Venue: The cottage , Hight Street, Staithes

Medium: Traditional Silver/gold/tinsmith
