Spring Fling 2024

25th May @ 10:00 am - 27th May @ 5:30 pm

Spring Fling is a vibrant visual art and craft open studios event covering the length and breadth of Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland. It is highly regarded as one of the UK’s most successful contemporary visual art and craft events.

Every year around 90 professional artists and makers throw open the doors of their studios over the late May Bank Holiday weekend. Visitors can get behind the scenes of artistic practice, experience artists and makers demonstrating and explaining their processes and inspirations, and have the opportunity to buy a piece of art direct from the maker. Each studio experience is unique: every artist is different, but each will offer a meaningful insight into the inner workings of their creative life.

In addition to the open studios, over the Spring Fling weekend visitors can enjoy a number of extra events and happenings. These have included such projects as EDGE; Spring Fling Rural Mural (SFRM); and Spring Shows, a series of local, national and international exhibitions. And visitors can studio-hop the green way on one of the Spring Fling Bus Tours.

The 2024 event dates are:

25 – 27 May 2024

These are Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, with studios open 10am till 5.30pm on all three days.
