Renowned for being Scotland’s premier open studios visual art and craft, Spring Fling enjoys a national and international reputation in a region which claims more artists per head than anywhere else in Scotland.
And from this extraordinary selection of artists and makers, New Brewery Arts with support from Holly Burton from the Crafts Council’s Learning & Talent Development Team has chosen 28 to showcase their work in the South West. These include printmakers, photographers, jewellers, ceramicists, blacksmiths, sculptors and textile designers.

"Dumfries and Galloway is an incredibly creative place and home to many remarkable artists and makers who love to live and work in a region of inspiring beauty and with strong artistic traditions.
