Spring Fling 26 - 28 May 2018

Here you will find the full list of our 2018 participating artists and makers! Each studio has a profile page where you will find images of the Artists work, their studio address, contact details and social media links.

This year we have 86 studios flinging their studio doors open for Spring Fling Open Studios. Of this, we have 11 new studios taking part, along with a mix of Neighbours (artists/makers from neighbouring regions) and Springbacks (artists/makers that have taken part before or have a connection to the region but don't live in D&G).

Remember you do not only have 3 days to go around the studios - you have 3 nights as well! We have encouraged our artists to open their studios on Friday (25th 6 - 8pm), Saturday or Sunday (26th or 27th 'til 8pm) - most of the artists have chosen to open for at least one evening. Look out for the following icons on their artist pages:
