“I still can’t quite believe that my new business works so well around family life AND is so enjoyable. I previously worked in customer service as an Account Manager and was looking for a change in career. I needed something that was flexible, to allow me to support my family, but also gave me some personal satisfaction. I couldn’t believe it when I discovered Creation Station, it ticked both boxes with many more positives. ” Smiles Lisa Harkin Wakefield East franchise owner.



“I went along to a Discovery Event which was really enlightening and answered all of my questions. Listening to the franchisees talking was really inspiring and gave me the confidence to take the step to running my own business. I was nervous but so excited. I could see the benefits of being part of this trusted brand with the added reassurance of lots of support along the way.



The training was excellent, I didn’t realise it could be so informative yet enjoyable. The support from everyone at the Creative Hub has only continued to impress me, with lots of tips on how to develop my business. I have now been operating for nearly a year and I really love being my own boss, it’s hard work but very rewarding. I love meeting all the new people and watching the relationships blossom amongst the families.

I am so happy I have the opportunity to really test my skills, push myself out of my comfort zone and prove to myself that I can be successful and make my family proud. I am very excited about my future with The Creation Station and the potential my business has to continue to grow and become a highly recommended children’s arts and craft provider in my area.”



Lisa now inspires children with weekly baby discover, little explorer and parties in the Wakefield East area.

We love our classes with Charlotte, she is always so smiley, welcoming & enthusiastic. The crafts are always amazing & we love to take them home. She was an angel throughout lockdown & we looked forward to our weekly delivery of crafts.

Alix at Creation Station provided a wonderful party for our daughter's 7th birthday. Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, which she navigated firmly but without them ever feeling like they dominated the party, the children had the most wonderful time. As a parent, it was a real relief to be able to step back and let someone so experienced, so warm and so friendly, take the children through their activities. Our little girl said it was 'everything she wished for' - you can't ask for more than that!

We really enjoyed the Christmas session…

We really enjoyed the Christmas session today. Sharon was lovely and really helpful when we wanted to do a baby handprint. The set up was fab and we felt very safe and everything had been really well planned With Covid. The Little Beans cafe was also a great venue we will definitely be visiting again. We look forward to getting our cards and tags! Thanks so much
