Spring Fling 2013

Specialising in textile sculpture, Holly Clothier's work is created using different fabrics and media with a mixture of machine and hand sewing techniques.

Lucianne Lassalle's sculpture, pottery, paintings and drawings are 'mostly inspired by the human form, contemporary dance/theatre and ancient mythologies.'

Colour motivates Joanna McLeman Gisbey into action and this is reflected in her paintings, collages and lively sculptural jewellery, hand-cut from giant balloons or ultra-violet latex.

Just a few of the artists taking part in this year's Spring Fling - Scotland's Premier Art and Craft Open Studios Event in beautiful Dumfries and Galloway. Doors open 25-27 May 2013.


  1. I hope I can still see some of these artists when I visit Dumfries and Galloway towards the end of june ... love the textile and sculptures. Thanks for sharing the names Lois!

    1. Marion, if you go to the Spring Fling website you can download the brochure which gives all the names and addresses of the artists taking part. There is also a map. You will find that most of these artists' studios are open to the public throughout the year. The brochure also recommends nearby places to eat and drink for each location.

  2. What a beautiful and diverse collection of desirables--will go check out the website now. I'd just love to have sandles made after those rings!
