Staithes on the Yorkshire Coast; an artists paradise with great views around every corner. And in recent years Staithes has celebrated its artistic history with the Staithes Heritage Weekend. This is a fantastic event; where i have had the privilege of exhibiting my work for the last few years. Over the Weekend many of the houses in Staithes open there doors and become mini galleries; where artists can display there work for the public to view or purchase if they wish. Last year (2015) there was nearly 100 venues with 130 exhibitors displaying textiles; jewellery,paintings, photos and other crafts dotted around the maze of streets and alleyways. Food stalls and barbecues are set up on the cobbled pavements; with live music been played around the village. This is a truly remarkable event and gathers momentum year on year; and an absolute must see for anyone who loves the arts and crafts and life on the coast.
