We asked Jann to share why she loved providing creative activities in her community- this is what she said...

Why did you want to run your own business?

"The flexibility and personal responsibility of driving my business in the way that I think is right is one of the amazing benefits of running your own business.  I've found my passion and can follow it"

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"It excited me and suited everything I wanted from a job.  Running both the pre-school classes and after-school clubs in Macclesfield I have the opportunity to have all the good parts of teaching without the endless marking, assessment, data and Ofsted."

Describe your highlights so far...

"Having an ever increasing number of children that continue to come term after term to my after-school clubs in Macclesfield.  They come because they enjoy the club and I can see their improvements - in confidence and imagination as well as their skills and understanding of art.  They are excited about arts and crafts with the freedom to develop their own ideas along with dedicated time and good quality resources."

Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Jann & her classes...

Virtual party

I wasn’t sure how to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with the current restrictions and I don’t regret doing a virtual arty party at all! Nicola was absolutely amazing at hosting my daughter’s virtual 6th birthday party and all the girls really enjoyed it! Nicola was really good at keeping in contact and explaining how it would work. Would definitely recommend and will look at doing another party again in the future.

Family fun!

Lovely relaxed session for the whole family, Alix very friendly. Crafting not an easy thing to do via zoom, but it worked well. Children especially excited at the prospect of being in the Guinness book of records?

Sparking my inner arts and crafts hobbyist

Absolutely love these classes. I was first introduced to these from another baby group leader, I wanted to take my little boy to some different groups. When we were allowed to go, we went to the baby groups in Westhoughton. It was a very warm welcome that made us feel so comfortable in a new group. Everything was explained fully on what we had to do in the groups, even providing protective clothing for the clothes for my little boy. After this, I have gotten to know the group leader a little and now started to join in monthly arts and crafts zoom meetings with other ladies who enjoy this. I never thought I would start a hobby doing this but I LOVE IT! I’ve now made 2 things and am waiting for the March class to make more. It’s something to take my mind away for a few hours and do some creating. I was always so interested in arts and crafts when I was young but now this has got my mind buzzing. Thank you for your groups and lovely leaders! It’s been brilliant doing these groups in lockdown!

A brilliant arty party for 6 year olds

We held a joint online arty party for my 6 year old daughter and her friend today and it was brilliant. Nicola Gillaspy was really helpful in organising the event and sent out everything we needed ahead of time, and was an absolutely brilliant party host. All the girls were engaged and made some lovely crafts, and it was lovely to see them all laughing and having fun together, in spite of the lockdown. Thanks Nicola - highly recommend her parties ☺️

Brilliant

I cannot praise the creation station enough. It has been a wonderful experience taking part in the zoom calls and it has been a god send to my sister, who has learning difficulties. I wish I had found you sooner

My kids love The Creation Station classes. They are always well run and really engaging. This session was on zoom and the joining info was really helpful and meant the session ran really smoothly. Would definitely recommend.
