‘An unusual tactile experience in a lovely format.’

’Strange, unexpected, but welcome. A lovely concept.’

‘Calming, connecting and a lovely experience. Muito obrigada!’

‘A lot of fun meeting everyone. Had a blast!’

‘Inspiring evening.’

‘It was a wonderful addition to an already special evening, (having watched a very imaginative and powerful production) to be invited to take part in this fantastic, epic art event. I met some fascinating people and enjoyed channelling happiness and connection into my little doll. Memorable.’

‘What a wonderful way to trap some dreams and bind them up with a visible heart. My little dream- filled doll will stay with me for a long time, an incredible memory of an evening spent with strangers, magical and joyful. Happenstance led me here, happenstance led me away again. Dreams connect these two points.’

‘A calming communal experience.’

‘Very calming, thoughtful experience, deeply soulful.’

‘Thank you for the peaceful + reflective moment. Good luck with your project!’

‘Making the figure was very meditative and thinking about ‘her’ was strangely moving with her beating heart.’

‘Free therapy very needed and I’m grateful. Feeling calm and content. Thanks Regina, you’re cool.’

‘I feel I have created a living thing. What a strange feeling. It is just a stuffed doll after all.’

‘It was nice to make a human from dreams with a heart. It took time and now I don’t really want to leave him…’

‘Dreams are always within us in abundance, but only those necessary for our being are realised. Making Billy after watching a play was a wonderful way to reconcile the emotions and thoughts evoked throught theatre.’

‘A strangely soothing social ritual.’

‘I am very grateful of meeting you in the middle of my adventure in London and have the chance to participate in your project. This project make people meet each other and also give you the opportunity to create some lovely dolls. In the moment I am making my doll I forget  about everything else, I am in other peaceful place. Thanks Regina for helping us and give us the chance to enjoy this big project.’ 

‘Peaceful, collaborative, joyful, creative, happy. A sense of joy, a sense of peace.’

‘Real magic.’

‘A wonderful creative process, physically and spiritually. Many thanks. The journey is the destination! Much love.’

‘Profound, surprisingly moving and powerful. Regina’s calm and sincere energy made my participation valuable ad memorable. Regina’s mission to make one doll for ‘each one of us’ has inspired me to be more mindful of the inter-connectivity between all of ‘us’. Soothing. Relieving. Beautiful!’

‘Harmony with strangers.’

‘Peace, love and determination.’

‘Thankful for the hands-on loveliness, the beauty of chatting and connecting, and the joy of creating.’

‘It was a lovely time meeting Regina, making new friends and making the dolls. Such a nice, warm, welcoming atmosphere.’

‘Very rewarding and beautiful experience. Thoroughly enjoyable. A great masterpiece of Regina and the community. Wonderful idea.’

‘A God given experience. Inspiring, calming, interactive with amazing people. An unexpected wonderful interval of life.’

Thank you so much everyone!
