"I've never seen kids engaged for so long. I had to drag Milie away."
Jamie Rose
Tiger Mandala at the V&A Museum of Childhood 2011

"I think it's nice to give children the freedom to explore. They learn a lot by taking risks and experimenting without having to adhere to a structured exercise."
Sue Johnson

"The balance between guidance and allowing freedom to express at the session was perfect." 
Kathryn Lowe
Yoga Art and Landscape Listening Session

"I like that it's all natural and kids get to explore textures, smells, colours, weight on their own. The smell is divine"
Tiger Mandala at the V&A Museum of Childhood 2011

"I'm so happy for the work you do with children! Kids are so intuitive at making mandalas, it's one of the first things they draw. Thank you for your blessing the planet with your unique gift! 
Danamala, Mandala artist

"Landscape reading is both a joy and a skill that's important to our future on the planet...bringing together art, yoga and landscape in a mandala sounds enticing. I love what you're doing."
Patrick Whitefield, landscape designer and best selling author of the Earth Care Manual and The Living Landscape

"Ben and Sally really loved having the chance to play and explore in a very unstructured, hands on way. It was a lovely chance to make some art with others and it helped us all slow down at what was a rather busy event. Many thanks."
Jo Homan
Mandala Making in the Garden at the London Permaculture Festival August 2010

"It was a beautiful and calm activity and all my children enjoyed it. My 7 year old boy made a rocket, my disabled 5 year old enjoyed touching and feeling the seeds and my 2 year old girl made a flower picture. I liked the scents - thank you very much."
Lucy Newman
Spring Mandala at the EFSDS May in a Day! May 2011

"The experience of handling, smelling and exploring the materials being as much apart of the activity as the end result. The Mandala provided a fun and safe environment for over 500 children aged mostly between 2-8 years. I found Camelia to be amenable, reliable and creative in her approach and a delight to work with." 
Nicky Caro
V&A Museum of Childhood August 2011

"At last something for my son Hamish (aged 2 1/2) that really interests, stimulates and occupies him. I love this creation in all seedy wonder." 
James Fagan, Folk by the Oak 2012

"Thank you very much for the lovely May Mandala workshop you led on our lawn! It looked and smelt beautiful! People of all ages really enjoyed working on it. I’d just like to say that it was a pleasure working with you and hope that we can find another occasion."
Rachel Elliott, Education Director
"What great fun, an amazing sight, the lawn full of children making patterns with seeds and flowers. Everyone should have Camelia at their summer festivals, fairs, fetes and parties."  
Jane Pfaff, May Pole Workshop Leader 

It was great fun, feeling the grass beneath my feet whilst getting the opportunity to create. 
Morgan, 13 years old, Folk by the Oak 2012

"We so enjoyed all the wonderful smells and sensations last year. I was really hoping you'd be back again - and you were! Thank you..."
Rhone and Callum, Folk by the Oak 2012

"That was my favourite part of the event as it was a peaceful pause in the busy buzz."
