From Mermaid To Award-Winning Parties In Brighton and Hove

Jen has travelled the world under the Big Top of a circus before landing back in Shoreham.  This fire breathing, SCUBA diving 'mermaid' brings her endless energy and passion for creativity to the wonderful world of The Creation Station and now runs award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Hove, East Sussex.

This month we are proud to have presented Jen our 'Franchisee of The Month' award for her positivity, drive, determination and hard work growing her business - and for her outstanding support to fellow franchisees - Well done Jen!  

We asked Jen 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 wanted to start a business that would bring people together both young and old, would make me smile and feel as though we had achieved something each day"

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"Buying a franchise is a great package deal.  It's like buying a recipe with all the ingredients included.  All you need is a bag of creativity, blended with a bit of guts, and a sprinkling of patience."

Describe your highlights so far...

"I love the fact that grown-ups and our sparkly seniors can get crafty and let their creative juices flow without fear of failure.  As adults we often stop experimenting and 'playing' because we are scared of failing"

"I really loved the 'Dog's Trust' event that we attended.  We had lots of fun creating puppy pictures and doing Play-Doh modelling - and we got to meet all the super cute puppies too!"

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

5* Reviews for Jen Elfverson of The Creation Station Hove

How do you feel about being awarded 'Franchisee Of The Month'?

I was so surprised when I was awarded 'Franchisee Of The Month' for the network for November. It was totally unexpected and was lovely to have the hard work and effort I put in recognised by my peers. 

I’ve been so busy booking in a huge amount of Family Entertainment all around Brighton and Hove with 100’s of pots of slime made, Christmas cards and crackers designed and of course our adult 'Creative Crafters' are getting their sparkle on ready for Christmas. We are already booking into next year for Arty Parties and crafting events for young and young at heart and have recently had a fantastic meeting with a business development and corporate events company who want me as part of their package! 2020 is shaping up to be a huge year for crafting in Brighton, Hove and Shoreham!

How do you feel about the future?

"I would love to be the 'Number 1 Place To Be' in Brighton, Hove and Shoreham.  To be running adult, children and senior's session in schools, festivals and the community along with THE BEST party entertainment for kids, adults and hen do's!"

Fantastic creative fun with The Creation Station Hove

Lovely class ??‍???‍???

Such a lovely Time today. Nothing too much to ask from Alexis and certainly felt very safe and comfortable in current circumstances! I only wish I could have come when my twins were smaller and could move less! Would love to come back for another session- thank you!

We had a lovely session

We had a lovely session, and made some beautiful keepsakes. Alexis made us feel welcome and she was helpful when needed but also let us get on with things ourselves.

Get crafty in a relaxed

Get crafty in a relaxed, stress-free and supportive atmosphere with a lovely, friendly group of people. There is of course, the added bonus that you get to take your creation home!!

Creative fun had by all!

My youngest daughter loves her weekly session at The Creation Station! Splashsuits are provided to keep the little ones clean and the class is held in a COVID safe environment. Great, creative fun for children and parents to have together, we just wish the time didn't go so quickly!

Can’t wait to go again!

I went along to a baby creation station session. I’m not the most creative person but thought it would be fun for my baby. Had the best time and made some brilliant little keepsakes and the host Alexis was great and gave me so ideas, the cake and coffee was a bonus too! Booked in for the Xmas keepsakes session and can’t wait!! Thanks so much for a lovely morning

Holiday Club

My two girls came to the Creation Station holiday club and absolutely LOVED it, wore their creations the whole evening and talked about their day none stop. Claire is incredible with the kids and we will not hesitate to book our girls on to more of her Holiday sessions! Thank you!
