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.

Pamela Scott

Pamela Scott has been painting in different mediums for some years, having studied with and gained inspiration from leading artists in the North Yorkshire area. Her first love is watercolour and she uses a wet into wet technique mixing colour on the paper giving her work the fusion of light and colour. Recently Pamela has been experimenting with acrylic paint, adding texture by using plaster of Paris and texture paste, giving her paintings a rugged look, while still keeping a loose almost watercolour effect. She also likes to carry this effect through into her pastel work. Pamela will be exhibiting with Viridian at Trig Point.

Venue: Dining Room 2, Trig Point 49

Medium: Mixed Media paintings

Geri Sharrock

Smugglers Treasures is a unique collection of handmade jewellery and crafts, each piece is carefully made with love and originality at the heart of it. I try to source a lot of the materials from the local beaches along the North East coast of England. The collection is heavily influenced by nature and incorporates shells, sea glass, and gemstones. This makes each piece completely unique due to the beautiful irregularities of the sea's washed up treasures and stones of the earth.

Venue: Seacot Cottage, High Street
