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.

Louise Goult Textiles

My work is inspired by people and relationships, often focussing on memories of times together and places visited. I enjoy creating pieces of conceptual work that contain a narrative, with the use of fabric and materials central to the work. I use the materials to convey the story or feeling behind the work – it is essential to me that the materials used are there for a purpose and to further enrich the piece. I use a variety of materials to embroider on including wood, metal, paper and everyday items such as sieves.

Venue: Trig Point

Medium: Textiles and Embroidery

Lisa Tindale

Lisa Tindale is a maker of mosaics, specialising in smaller objects. Her early work is abstract, portraying found form and colour in fragments of stone on 4 inch tiles. These were followed by a series of child-like boats and moons, again on the small format tiles, miniature tea-cups with childrens’ cutlery, and stone flower-pots filled with dried flowers. In 2018 she returned to abstraction with skylines of Amsterdam houses mounted on wallpaper backgrounds. She also produced a series of hearts on wood and has most recently moved to small-format brooches which are on show for the first time at Staithes.

Venue: Grimes Cottage, High Barrass

Medium: Mosaic Artist

Galina Titova is a textile artist based in York. Working in a traditional wet felting technique she creates felted pictures resembling watercolour painting and unique felted sculptures. Drawing inspiration from natural geometrical forms she designs and makes sculptural textile pieces on large and small scale.
