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.

Mad About Wool

Born and bred in Denmark I grew up with wonderful fabric around me as both parents were Taylor’s. This is where my love of fabric started, especially with wool and natural yarns. I love to knit and there are great health implications, it makes me feel good. I like to make my items fun and with a purpose. I also take pre loved chairs and cover them with knitting. They all have a theme and a story.

Venue: Ruby House, High Street

Medium: Creative knitted items
