About Us.

First and foremost, we are PASSIONATE about nurturing creativity!

What does that mean for us? Well, we love having fun with different materials - paint, glue and, of course, a bit of glitter – but we also believe that being creative is about experimenting, playing and just seeing what happens.

Giving expression to your own imagination in a group setting provides lots of benefits. It helps young children learn to make choices, share, listen, observe, pretend, problem solve, as well as play and interact with others.

The Creation Station isn’t simply about learning how to paint, model or collage along the lines of “Here’s one we did earlier”. It’s all about having a go, being inspired by something quite simple and encouraging each person to develop their own ideas. It’s amazing seeing that happen and it also gives you a huge boost of confidence when your ideas are taken seriously - no matter how old you are!

Such a lovely Time today. Nothing too much to ask from Alexis and certainly felt very safe and comfortable in current circumstances! I only wish I could have come when my twins were smaller and could move less! Would love to come back for another session- thank you!

Creative fun had by all!

My youngest daughter loves her weekly session at The Creation Station! Splashsuits are provided to keep the little ones clean and the class is held in a COVID safe environment. Great, creative fun for children and parents to have together, we just wish the time didn't go so quickly!

Can’t wait to go again!

I went along to a baby creation station session. I’m not the most creative person but thought it would be fun for my baby. Had the best time and made some brilliant little keepsakes and the host Alexis was great and gave me so ideas, the cake and coffee was a bonus too! Booked in for the Xmas keepsakes session and can’t wait!! Thanks so much for a lovely morning
