Welcome to Spring Fling

Spring Fling Open Studios event takes place this late May Bank Holiday weekend.

Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Monday 27th May, with studios open 10am till 5.30pm on all three days.

Once you’ve visited, we’d love to know what you thought of the event – and you could be in with the chance of a prize! See more here.

Spring Fling by Bus

Let someone else do the driving – join a guided bus tour!

We have tours travelling around the studios, departing from New Galloway, St John’s Town of Dalry, Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Lockerbie.

Tours are wheelchair accessible and are ideal for individuals and groups!
