My children found their work more engaging and compelling than other areas including the main stages. The work felt professional, thoughtful and driven by a desire to engage a range of audiences which is not often the case in the context of outdoor work for families.
LUCY JEFFRIES, ACE ART ASSESSOR Camp Bestival 2016
I just wanted to take five minutes to thank you for the incredible contribution you and your team made to the Climate March. You brought such colour and energy to the day, it was honestly amazing. So many of the photos I’ve seen had Shademakers in them and I can’t tell you how many times I heard someone commenting on them, or pointing them out.
