Willow weaver Geoff Forrest has been welcoming hundreds of visitors to his temporary studio in New Galloway as part of this year's Spring Fling festival.
The event is now in it's 13th year and features 94 artists and makers who have opened up studios across Dumfries and Galloway.
Geoff, along with three other weavers, makes everything from traditional baskets to figurative and abstract sculptures.
"I make baskets and anything that I possibly can from willow. Living structures, figurative sculptures, forms influenced by nature, things that hang on the wall, rest on a table or stand on the floor. Twisty, bendy, wobbly, wonderful willow."
Any morning showers soon dying out, then a mostly dry and bright day with some sunshine at times. Highs 15°C. Light northwest breeze.
Cloudy through the evening a few further light showers especially over Dumfries and Galloway. Mostly dry during the night, with a few clear intervals developing in the east. Lows 6°C
