Keeping The Creative Soul Alive! | Crafting for Adults

The sparkliest conference this year!

I have just returned home from a weekend away with some amazing women and men from our Annual Creation Station Conference.  I had a blast and have come back full of motivation and renewed enthusiasm for my business!  

It then got me thinking...why do I love it so much? 

To put it simply, I just love sharing my crafting knowledge in the hope that it inspires someone, somehow and brightens their day.  When I was first awarded my Creation Station franchise, it was all about the children, and in a massive way it still is – but now I find myself gravitating towards the adults, hoping that I can bring back a bit of sparkle to their lives.

I craft for many reasons.

I think there is something beautiful about being able to give a gift to someone that is made just for them, with your own two hands.

I craft because it provides a great stress relief and frees my mind.

I craft because I can’t imagine ever not crafting.

Ultimately, I craft to keep my soul happy, it was what I was born to do and I never intend to stop.

Bringing a bit of sparkle back with adult craft classes

So, here’s the short version: I’m drawn to creativity in every part of my life. I have been a glass artist for at least the last 10 years, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve always been making something.

I’m a craft addict, and have tried my hand at many skills, but 3 years ago I invested in a business that helped show me how my crafting and creativity could inspire and benefit children in a world where creativity was fast approaching extinction!  

Fast forward that 3 years and I am now inspiring over 3,000 children (and also adults) a year bringing creativity back to life!  For me, crafting really helps my mental health, it fills me with complete happiness. I sometimes liken it to my Slime Making Workshops and the amazing reaction you get from the children that moment when you add in your Activator to the mix and the “magic” starts to happen!

Gooey, gloopy, glorious slime fun!

Don’t get me wrong, there have been times when I have lost my “mojo” and it didn’t matter what I sat down to do – it just didn’t work or look right.  But then I would sit down at one of my 'Creative Crafter' adult craft sessions and take in the fact that there were 10 or so ladies (and gents!) in front of me showing me their “sparkle” – and that feeling is truly amazing!Keeping creativity alive with Judith from Creation Station Charnwood, Leicestershire

I would like to see art and creativity in all areas of learning and life – to help educate and entertain us and to help provide healthy minds and wellbeing within the community. 

If you feel you have lost your “sparkle”, let me help you get it back – come to an Adult Creative Crafters session.  It’s all about FUN and keeping our creative soul alive!

outstanding class birthday party for my seven year old daughter

I attended a creation station birthday party a year ago and was so impressed I decided I would like a similar party for my daughter. Yat was brilliant from my first contact with her months in advance of the date. She gave me thorough information, advice on venue hire, and a variety of craft formats to choose from. My daughter and her friends had an amazing time, including the boys from her class who were a bit dubious in advance but went home afterwards buzzing. Yat and her energetic, warm colleagues were marvellous ... they played fun music throughout, and engaged all the children in high quality novel crafts. Yat guided me as a first time party host expertly. The party ran like clockwork. Yat developed a fantastic rapport with my daughter and was wonderful with all the children. A highlight was a fun musical party game after the party food, which the children loved. It was a joy to watch. My daughter will never forget her first proper birthday party, she is still talking about it and we have beautiful photographs, crafts and memories to keep. Thanks to Yat and her team, it was magical for our daughter and for us, an experience and memory we will always treasure.

So much to do!

So much to do!! My daughter and I had a wonderful time making pirate things and can't beleieve how many pieces of art work we came home with! Lovely immersive experience and Alexandra is wonderful with kids. They all were absorbed in her story telling and the interactive treasure chest activity at the end. Thoroughly recommend this!

Working with The Creation Station and more specifically Sandra Steele was a joy and a pleasure. From the very first enquiries through the briefing process and on to the final event, nothing was too much trouble. Real thought and consideration was given to the size of the group, the different age range Sandra would need to work with and her complete flexibility meant switching days at the very last minute and extending the time she was on site. It is with absolute pleasure we provide a 5 star rating to Sandra and The Creation station and would highly recommend her.

My son loves it

We've been to creation station for almost a year now, my son still loves it. He gets to be creative and I don't have to clean up the mess, which is a bonus. Emma is great with all the children. Highly recommend this activity from a young age, learn about textures, colours, shapes etc.

Flamingo story and craft

The session started on time and felt like there was a structure to it. My only thing was that the room felt like small for the age range of the children. The group leader explained she’d be doing baby only sessions in the future but currently 6 months to 5 years. This puts me off booking future sessions, for now.

A really special class. Tarryn is a kind and caring lady who is passionate about creating exciting, sensory and educational art classes. The best Toddler class I have been to. Tarryn makes time for every mum and child. We always have a lovely time and the outcomes are always fantastically planned.
