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.

Helen Kippax

Being a woman incarnate in a body, and walking on this earth inspires my work. All things change and we die are the only certain things I know. I strive for passion and full engagement with the life process in all my work.

Venue: Ruby House, High Street/38

Medium: Sculpture Mixed Media

Mick Kirkby-Geddes

I make sculptures to go indoors, outdoors, do commissions and work in lots of schools. I like to re-use junk metal and give it a new lease of life in my work, it’s like a personal mission not to see anything go to waste. Mixed together with new metal these discarded objects live again as parts of sculptures of animals, people, robots, clocks, in fact anything really. The ideas come from cartoons, children’s books, tv programmes and quite often the shapes of the original objects themselves.

Venue: Roraima, 40 Staithes Lane/7

Medium: metal sculpture
