How I set up my own home based crafts business

With a creative background, Avne enjoyed a successful career in design and fashion. However, as her young daughters started to grow, Avne realised that she wanted more flexibility to be there for them. Avne also wanted to use her creative skills, and the idea of running her own business had always been of interest. Avne shares how she came across The Creation Station franchise, and why now, during lockdown, she decided this was the time to go for what was right for her family, her daughters and herself.

Avne now provides fun and educational arts and crafts classes, parties, workshops and events for parents and babies, toddlers, children, adults and the eldery in eth Sutton Coldfield area.

Austin had a great couple of days and was very proud of all the creations he came home with, they are exhibited for all to see! Lovely for him to do something different and being a fairly small group was great for him, not too overwhelming. Thank you x

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions.

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions once a week. He is doing things that I wouldn’t have thought to do and because it’s a set time each week we’re sitting down and doing it together! The bags are prepared for us with everything in that we need and it is so much fun getting the supplies out and waiting to find out what we are going to do with them each week. Eleanor is interactive and I noticed that on week 3 my young man is speaking out to her and wanting to engage with her. We are so happy to have found the creation station.
