Alexis Is Bringing Award-Winning Arts & Crafts To Newcastle-Under-Lyme!

Alexis enjoyed corporate life as a senior buyer for a national supermarket, but often she felt like a round peg in a square hole. Alexis has already had an interest in creativity and dreamt of running her own business, but it wasn't until she came across the British Franchise Association website that she discovered the wide range of opportunities that were available. Alexis started her search and soon came across The Creation Station: an established, market-leading franchise, providing award-winning support that matched her values, delivering fun and creative classes, parties and events for kids and adults. She knew that The Creation Station would give her the opportunity and support she needed to achieve a rewarding and fulfilling career, doing something she loved with flexibility for her family needs. 

Alexis now brings award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Newcastle-under-Lyme and South Cheshire

Alexis is most definitely THE person to speak to for helping to nurture creativity in learning, leisure, and life and to inspire your little ones, yourself and senior citizens.  

Why did you want to run your own business?

"I have always wanted to run my own business but wouldn't have known where to start setting up a business from scratch."

"I believe that creativity is really important for both children and adults as it allows people to use their imaginations and just think in their own way, be themselves, and have fun.  This helps to build self-confidence and social skills which are so important in every aspect of life."


Bringing Creativity into Learning Lesiure & Life

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"I was on Facebook one day and an advert popped up for another franchise which, amongst other things, mentioned about fitting around your family life - something which I was really looking to achieve in my next role so this idea immediately appealed to me.  This led me to do more research on franchises via The British Franchise Association (bfa) website- this is a really informative and helpful site as I didn't really know much about franchising.  I found a list of all their approved franchises which I excitedly started to search. As I searched I came across  Creation Station, and it just really resonated with me. It looked like the one that would enable me to combine my passion for crafting with running my own business which I could also fit around my family life more flexibly than my previous role."

"As soon as I came across The Creation Station I knew that this was the business for me; the branding was amazing, really professional and eye-catching and the strong values of the business really shone through from my first interaction with the team."

"I downloaded the franchise info pack and went along to a Discovery event. When I met some of the team it really did look and feel like the right opportunity and the numbers all worked for what I was looking for. The business enables me to work, tapping into one of my true passion; crafting, something which I never dreamed could also be my business. Plus I plan my week and can tailor my business to suit me. It really does tick all the boxes for me."

What are you most looking forward to as you launch your own Creation Station?

"The training week was really comprehensive and my first week after training I took over £500 worth of bookings. Already I'm enjoying running my classes and meeting new people, both adults, and children who are just as passionate as I am about getting creative, making new friends and having loads of fun along the way."

How do you and your family feel about the future?

"My husband Jamie has been amazingly supportive and my daughter is already signed up as my number one helper - she's already ordered her special Creation Station 'Creative Helper' uniform!"

"Running my own franchise has already given me more freedom and flexibility to be around for my two young children.  Just being able to drop my daughter off at school is something I was never able to do in my previous job."

If you'd love to come along to one of Alexis's awesome classes or you are looking for some event entertainment or a fun birthday party entertainer in Newcastle-under-Lyme and South Cheshire, you can find out more at The Creation Station Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Natalie at Creation Station is fantastic!

Natalie at Creation Station is absolutely fantastic. Every week my two year old daughter and I have such fun. All the activities are so well organised and prepared perfectly and she managed to keep the little ones attentions focused for the whole of the session. My daughter looks forward to it each week and I can’t recommend both Natalie and the sessions highly enough.

Christmas craft session

Bit late in writing this review! Amazing time as always. Really enjoyed the Christmas session. Lots of fun ideas and support given to make personalised items. Thank you Sarah! Added bonus of having a mini Christmas photo session.
