5* Award-Winning Creativity And Fun With Claire Darnley In Halesowen

Claire had a successful career in marketing and events but wanted to change her path and find something more flexible that would enable her to spend more meaningful time with her family.  She was looking for a rewarding and challenging opportunity and now runs successful, award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Halesowen, Birmingham.  

Claire is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained! 

We asked Claire 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?

"I've always been an ambitious, determined and driven individual but after having my little boy I lost my confidence and identity somewhat.  I'd been in my job for 10 years and was 'comfortable'...but the big commute no longer seemed feasible with such a small child."

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"Everything!  It was fun, sociable and crafty - it ticked all my boxes.  It would fit around my new family life and offer me a new opportunity in an area that really interested me and that I was passionate about."

Describe your highlights so far...

"I have learnt a huge amount about myself and my skills in the last 5 years.  I simply love the look of excitement on children's faces when I ask them if they want to see what's inside the (Magic Ideas) Box!"

"I once ran a party and at the end the mum told me how impressed she was with my patience and control of the children.  She said she went out of a room of screaming kids (as the party began), and when she came back a few minutes later it was silent and all she could hear was me.  She was amazed at how captivated they were."

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

Adult craft evening

Review of adult craft evening.....Chantal is amazing! She is super lovely and brings a wide range of materials with her to the session. She taught us new techniques in simple but effective way. I found the session therapeutic and relaxing.

Katie's class is great!

I have been taking my son to Katie's classes since they started at Bridge of Weir 4 weeks ago and Casey excitedly runs into class each week. In each 45 minute class there is a new theme and there are 3 different "stations" to work through so there is enough variety in a class to keep the children entertained. The Creation Station is a very nice change from the usual sing song classes that I've taken Casey to before. Each week he has been proud as punch to come home with his work of art to show his daddy and his grandparents. Definitely recommend this class ? Bonus points that I dont have to worry about tidying up the mess Casey makes!
