From Mermaid To Award-Winning Parties In Brighton and Hove

Creation Station | Life of a Franchisee | Franchise | Event Entertainment | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Parenting | Events | Kids Party Ideas | Birthday Party Ideas | Activities for Kids | Indoor Activities For Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Christmas Activities For Kids

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

Excellent service! Great choices!

In the middle of lockdown, we ordered a number of craft packs from Alexis and were very pleased with the service. She helped us to choose some fantastic kits that our 4 year old loved. They were all great quality and personally delivered very quickly. I have already and would continue to highly recommend the creation station. I also run a homeschooling group on Facebook and can confirm that the members have all been really pleased with the offering and service available.

I absolutely loved Nats class!

I absolutely loved Nats class!! She made myself and my daughter feel so welcome on zoom!!! The class had a really cosy, casual feel, but I also learnt a new skill!!! Nat took time to make sure each of us felt confident! She valued our art and gave us lots of praise! I'm not arty, but I came away thinking I can do this!! This was my first class with Nat, and I will definitely be joining one of her classes again!!

Fabulous Alexis

Had a fab online mandala class with Alexis last night from the comfort of my own garden in North Staffs. Alexis made the whole thing really easy to follow, went the extra mile with our resources and I was super pleased with the result. She's also provided craft packs for my kids during lockdown which have been amazing.

Online Mandala Class

I really enjoyed the online Mandala class with Nat at Stafford South. She was really great at explaining the technique and made sure everyone felt at ease. There was a good mix of conversation and concentration! Nat was very professional, friendly and encouraging. I will definitely be doing more of her online classes in the future.

Create club

Amazing online Create Club. We have searched for interesting things to do online during lockdown and when the create club was recommended to us by others we signed up. We purchased 5 online sessions and so far we have completed 3. My daughter has enjoyed each week and so far her favourite was 'The Arctic'. She enjoys seeing some of her classmates and friends via zoom. Sara delivers everything you need for each week which makes everything very simple and enjoyable!! Looking forward to the next session!
