Reconnecting Families With Sarah Dunn Of The Creation Station Barnsley West

Sarah is a self-confessed craft 'dabbler' and president of her local Women's Institute.  She is passionate about families connecting with each other and enjoying their time together.  She was looking for a career that would enable her to enjoy the early years with her young family and now runs successful, award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.  


We asked Sarah 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?

"Having two children in two years drastically changed my priorities.  I didn't want to go back to an emotionally draining job with long working hours and miss out on my childrens' early years.  Working for myself means I can choose the hours I want to work and plan it around my family"

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"I love the ethos and brand values.  Despite having little natural talent I still enjoy crafting and I think others would too if they had a go."

"Creativity is so important...it gives us the opportunity to escape...for children this is just having the chance to be children and explore materials, shapes and colours without any rules or expectations.  For adults this is time away from life, screens and 'to-do' lists and to just relax."

Describe your highlights so far...

"I recently worked with the WE Wonder Festival.  It was a real buzz being part of a fantastic family day.  Whenever I looked up and saw crowds of families enjoying our activities it gave me that fuzzy feeling inside."

Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Sarah & her classes...

I would highly recommend Creation Station Northwest Nottingham - my son is gaining so much from the after school session at his school - the pieces he has produced are a credit to Nicola’s patience and encouragement and he always comes away recalling what he has learnt about the artist who has inspired that weeks piece.

Fun & unique craft party

Deepa did a wonderful job with a difficult bunch of 6 & 7 year olds! They all enjoyed decorating animals and taking them home in their decorated paper bags. Lots of sheets and aprons kept everything and everyone clean. I would recommend her and would do it again too! Thanks.

Fantastic party

A really fantastic party for our 6 year old (plus his toddler sister who also loved it!). All the children were super engaged and went home with their creations at the end. Alix and Ian were brilliant and very reliable. Highly recommend!

Farah created a wonderful party for my 6 year old son and his friends. They are all boisterous and active boys. I could not believe how engaged all the boys became in the activities Farah organised for the party. I really could not recommend Farah highly enough.
