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

Creation Station in Aston Clinton with…

Creation Station in Aston Clinton with Nicola has been one of the best value, easy going and generous activities that I have taken my little boy to since he was born. When we started going my little guy was a bit shy about creating, shy with people and wouldn't say his name. Now he strolls in and asks "What are we doing this week, Nicola?" He confidentially paints, draws, squeezes, squirts and excitedly tells people on the bus where he is going. To say we love this group is an understatement! Absolutely gutted that there is only one session left. Thank you Nicola for all the amazingly fun and inventive artwork. Thank you for all the tea. Thankyou for the extra mile you go each week to make the kids happy..water...sand..paints..snow...all after the main paintings and craft have finished..that extra time gave parents a break... ... thanks for not being worried about; mess or jewels in the playdough...colours in the glue... glitter everywhere..kids exploring ..kids running about with tinsel.. . about cross craft medium contamination!! Basically thanks for a no stress fun activity! You are very much appreciated. We will miss you a lot. Especially, H. Mondays won't be the same. sniff.

Brilliant class

Absolutely brilliant and creative after school class which my daughter really enjoys attending. There is a great structure so we know what the children are doing each week.

My daughter loves the after school sessions, but she is only 5 and I feel the themes are aimed a bit too high - learning about a technique or art material might be better than a specific artist each week?!

I have a child with additional needs who looks forward to class every week. Laurie is so patient with him and he really loves to go. They do a really wide range of crafts and ideas and come home with some lovely things (although I have nowhere to put them all now!) Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Really easy to book and great price

Really easy to book and great price! My daughter (7 months) attended her first discovery session, after we've been to a tiny treasure session and a drop in session, she absolutely loved it, as did I. I would definitely recommend going to creation station sessions and Joanna is fab too.
