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 contemporary visual art and craft events.

What is Spring Fling?

Every year between 90 – 100 professional artists and makers throw open the doors to their studios for three days over the late May bank holiday weekend, offering visitors the chance to 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 artist. Each studio experience is unique, every artist is different but each will offer a meaningful insight into the inner workings of an artist’s life.

In addition to the core event, over the Spring Fling weekend visitors can enjoy a number of extra events and happenings such projects as Couch; Spring Fling Rural Mural (SFRM); Spring Shows, a series of local, national and international exhibitions; Spring Out, a series of evening music, performance events. And visitors can studio hop the green way on one of the Spring Fling Bus Tours, Bike Rides or Walking Tours.
