What is your background?

I have been a teacher for the past 8 years in a local primary school and before that I was a Learning Mentor helping pupils access learning and with SEND needs or behavioural issues and even before that I ran a Theatre in Education business with my husband.


Why did you want to work for yourself?

After teaching to the constraints of a standard curriculum for long it was time to break out and do something I could be in control of. Whilst teaching I was able to create whole school theme days and learning for life days where I could be as innovative as I liked. I think I was bitten by the bug of no constraintsClaire O'hara Halifax Creation Station

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

Lots of fun!

My 9 year old twin girls absolutely love their Creation Station sessions with Alexis. They always want to do the normal after school sessions, and are equally enjoying the zoom after school sessions plus some extra holiday sessions too. Alexis is great with the children, and the crafts are fun and varied.

Wizard Workshop

My 6 year old loved the online Wizard Workshop! You can tell Alix was a teacher as she has the ability to hold all the kids attention. They had great fun with the slime making and other crafts. It was very exciting to receive the box in advance and I think for 2.5 hours it was also great value for money.

Highlight of lockdown half term

We love Alexis' sessions in-person, and somehow she's managed to make the Zoom sessions just as good! My 4 year old was engaged for the whole class and has been asking every day when we can do it again. He is still playing with his Super Hero creations! Alexis packs the kit with loads of great supplies and gave a short list of extras we would need like scissors and sticky tape. Worth every penny!

Amazing “Grandactivities” ?

My children and I had a fantastic morning with Karen who was absolutely brilliant at interacting with all of us, helping us to join in and complete our collage craftwork ? It was especially lovely as this was a “grand activities” session so my Mum who does not live local to us was also able to join the class and we could share the experience with her! It was so special and “something different” to the usual zoom chats that we are used to! Thank you so much, highly recommend!
