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.

Caroline Brogden - Contemporary Jewellery

Caroline Brogden is a largely self-taught jeweller working in precious metals. Her work combines a number of elements with an emphasis on natural from. In particular, those that can be found at the coast. Caroline initially started by collecting and casting shells and setting unusual pieces of sea glass; this is something which she still continues today. Overtime she has started to look at the contours and forms found in nature. Using traditional silversmithing skills her second body of work looks at ways to mimic these shapes and patterns and develop them into small pieces of wearable art.
