Kate Knubley has a hectic life with 3 children, a dog, a cat and a flair for strutting her stuff at the local Zumba class!
When looking for something that would give her the flexibility that she wanted, Kate Knubley found The Creation Station and is now running award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, birthday parties and events in Wimborne, Verwood and Broadstone.
Kate is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained!
We asked Kate 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?
"After working in primary education for 6 years I wanted to focus on arts & creativity for children. Creativity is so important! The activities that we do help you to explore and investigate the world, enable us to express our thoughts and emotions - and relax your brain!"
What attracted you to The Creation Station?
"I didn't have any experience of running a business and realised that I would benefit from a franchise that could offer the support and framework I needed - as well as an established brand. The ethos of the Creation Station really stood out - placing emphais on the importance of creativity and imagination."
Describe your highlights so far...
"I absolutely love seeing the children share their creations at the end of the session - they are so proud and excited. It's a brilliant way for families to share time together creating something unique and special. I really want to run more 'Care & Creativity' wellbeing workshops in the care homes of Wimborne and the surrounding areas - the experiences that we can offer are so beneficial in terms of confidence, skills and socialising."
Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Kate & her classes...
How do you feel about the future?
"I'm so excited! I can't wait to launch my 'Creative Crafters' adult crafting workshops and after-school 'Create Clubs' in Wimborne, Verwood and Broadstone this year! I was involved in the local Christmas markets, light switch on events and school fairs which was so much fun! I am really hoping to be at Wimborne Folk Festival next summer..."
