Flourish Dumfries
Dumfries Market Festival

THE GUILD DUMFRIES was founded in Spring 2018 and we're a not-for-profit social enterprise based in Dumfries. We provide a platform, opportunities and support for makers, creatives and producers to help their businesses flourish and grow. 


Our community space and shop FLOURISH opened its doors in November 2021 in the heart of Dumfries and is managed and curated by The Guild in partnership with Midsteeple Quarter. We champion and support our collective of makers and producers from across the region and beyond. But our new space isn't just a shop we also have a dedicated workshop space, flexible event space and offices on the first floor too. We deliver a variety of activities and a programme of events, including meet the makers, creative workshops, after school clubs and business development training. 


The Guild also produced DUMFRIES MAKERS MARKET a curated monthly event in the historic market town of Dumfries. It provided our community of makers, creatives and producers a platform to showcase their products at our makers market. Supported by volunteers and celebrating community spirit and  plays a part in supporting the regeneration of the town centre.
