Visit Craft in Dumfries and Galloway

Gracefield Arts Centre

Dumfries and Galloway covers the southwest corner of Scotland, sharing a small portion of its southern border with Cumbria in northern England. It lies on the Solway Firth to the east of the Irish Sea and is home to Scotland’s most southerly point at the Mull of Galloway.

A highlight of the craft calendar in Dumfries and Galloway is the annual Spring Fling in May, in which nearly 100 artists, designers and makers open their doors to visitors. 

It’s a region known for beautiful scenery that has inspired many famous artists, writers and craftspeople, including Scotland’s national poet, Robert Burns. Many visitors also come to enjoy the countryside, coastline and nature reserves, visit the region’s castles, monuments and ruins, and to cycle, fish and take part in watersports.

It’s a hub of artistic activity today, with makers producing handmade, unique pieces that can be seen in workshops, studios, galleries and shops throughout the area’s many towns and villages.
