About Spring Fling

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 visual art and craft events. The 2018 event took place from the 26 – 28 May when carefully selected Artists & Makers opened their doors to visitors showcasing their work throughout the Dumfries and Galloway area.

The open studios event is produced by Upland CIC as its annual flagship event, and it 2018 it brought around 30,000 unique visitors to D&G across its’s three days and more than £1.2 million to the regional economy.

In 2019, the event will be the 25-27 May. For this a range of artists and makers spanning the region will open their studios to the public, offering insights, exclusives, demonstrations and the opportunity to buy directly from the studio. The open studio weekend celebrates arts and crafts in Dumfries and Galloway, a region with a recognised high number of high-quality artists and makers. Joining these local artists will be a handful of artists and makers from neighbouring regions (through our Neighbour Scheme) and those with links to Spring Fling and/or the region (through the Springback Scheme). There will be some other additional elements too. These along with the full list of studios are yet to be revealed.
