“I believe by developing creative intelligence in ourselves and our children, we can help to harness the power to think, create, connect and inspire. These are essential skills in life and can be often overlooked in our quest to attain high grades. It’s why I started The Creation Station in 2002. It’s also why I spent the last two and half years writing my book. I’m delighted at the overwhelmingly positive response ‘Creative Sparks’ has received and sincerely hope people find it helpful to unlock their own creativity, as well as their children’s potential”.

ITV ‘This Morning’ parenting expert, Sue Atkins wrote the Foreword for ‘Creative Sparks’ and commented “Sarah’s book makes it simple, easy and hugely enjoyable to explore and think outside the box”

Andrea McClean, TV presenter said “Despite secondary, school looming and mobile phones have taken over the world, there is nothing like the satisfaction of [children] making something with their own bare hands to keep kids happy. The ‘grown-up’ part of this book really got me thinking; “What WOULD I attempt to do if I knew I could not fail?” Fear of failure is something that holds all of us back, from kids to adults, and Sarah’s natural enthusiasm makes all of us think that maybe we should just give it a go and see what happens? It’s an inspiring book for the whole family, I loved it.”

Lovely experience

Was a lovely afternoon. Nice and relaxing and amazing value for what we had (hot drink and cake included). Kelly was super friendly as well. Only thing I would say was that the venue was on the chilly side. When I was getting my little ones toes out for the footprints I found that he got cold quickly, ending up with a lot if snot appearing.

I would highly recommend this class

I would highly recommend this class. Gurjot is such a great teacher and made an immediate connection with my 1.5 year old daughter in the first class. My daughter didn’t like to get her hands and feet in the paint to start with, but by the third class, was enjoying it. The craft ideas are wonderful and the teaching was supportive and gentle. It’s also great to know that the materials are safe for kids. We really love the way Gurjot teaches and the effort she puts into making the classes and special craft making sessions a great fun learning experience for all. Thank you.

My little one had the best party - thank you!

My little one had the best party! Nakita was truly amazing. She kept the children engaged throughout, making it fun and inclusive for everyone and they all got to take home their lovely artwork. So many parents commented on what a fabulous party it was and how much they enjoyed it as well as the children. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
