Spring Fling 2023

We are delighted to be taking part in Spring Fling again this year. This is Dumfries and Galloway’s wonderful open studio event that happens each year at the end of May. This year it will be over the weekend of Saturday 27th to Sunday 29th May, the bank holiday weekend in parts of the UK.

There are 100 studios taking part this year, the largest to date. The beautiful brochure is available now, if you are a Spring Fling Friend then you will receive your copy in the post. It’s not too late to become a Friend, you can sign up here, and many of the studios offer a discount to Friends of Spring Fling during the event. If you are in the region there are brochures in many venues across Dumfries and Gallloway where you can collect a copy, or indeed it is available to order for a small charge from here.

On the website you can learn about all the artists and makers taking part in Spring Fling 2023. You will get a glimpse of their working methods and their working spaces, as well as a taste of their finished work. You will also find details of the studio locations for the Spring Fling weekend, including access information and exactly how to find them. Use the map to explore the region and help plan your trip – and with the search functions you can select areas, artistic disciplines – or individual artists.

We will be open for the three days of the event and of course invite you to visit and see where we are, what we do and a little about how we do it. Come and visit our beautiful region and meet some of our many and brilliant craftspeople and artists.
