Spring is nearly here and all around us primroses, snowdrops and daffodils are joyfully blooming… We have been tucked away editing these last few months and have just finished this rather humorous film, documenting the workshops we delivered with some very creative and talented children from Pensilva and Calstock Primary Schools.
