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!

Emma Yeoman

Emma, who was born in Staithes, recently completed her BA (Hons) Fine Art at York St John university. Emma’s current collection The Wallflower is a series of botanical wire studies presented on contemporary canvasses. To create her botanical studies, she carefully manipulates wire to define the subject’s outer edge and then uses finer wire to highlight key features of the subject. By using the wire in such a way, intricate shadows are cast when light is directed towards the piece and provides grounding to her delicate work in situ. Emma’s portfolio includes detailed sculptural work using wire, clay, and driftwood.
