Whats that blob?!

We've all said it at some point, spotted a strange gelatinous blob in the sea or on the beach and wondered what it was!

Well more often than not, those wobbly blobs turn out to be jellyfish! But hey, you'd have know that if you had come along to our jelly themed workshop! 

Don't worry because here is your chance! jellyfish workshop 2 20150616 2039143419
