Spring Update from the Jon Dibben Workshop

Posted by Jon - 31 March 2017

We have to confess to being better at sharing what we've been up to via our social media than on the blog. We're working hard on the new website, where we will endeavour to get better at sharing. But, in the meantime, if anyone wants to join in, our social media links are at the bottom of this blog.
