The Creation Station Bury North | Meet Sarah - Franchisee of the Month!

Sarah joined our sparkly team of inspirers in 2017, and since she's been inspiring the children and adults of Bury North in classes, parties, events, and more! 

 We spoke to Sarah about running her Creation Station Franchise and here's what she had to say; 

What's your favourite thing about running Creation Station? 
My favourite thing about The Creation Station is the fact it has given me a new and exciting opportunity in life! After being a teacher for 20+ years I was ready for a new challenge and CS came along at the right time! I love being my own boss, making my own decisions and trying hard to make my business grow. No week is ever the same and that’s so exciting! 

What's your most memorable moment so far? 
I guess if I can choose 2, which I hope I can, then recently winning Raring 2 Go award for Bury’s Best Pre-School Class was fantastic and totally unexpected. The comments I received from my customers, when they knew I’d won, were totally overwhelming and touching. Also being filmed for ‘My First Art Class’ for CBeebies was pretty special too! Although I really don’t enjoy watching myself back!

What's coming up soon in Bury? 
I have a Creative Crafters on July 9th which I am really excited about - Creative Crafters is such a great opportunity for adults to take some time out for themselves. 

What does the future of Creation Station Bury North look like? 
The future for CS Bury North is very important to us as a family. My partner and I have worked hard to see it grow in a way that works for us. We have invested a huge amount of time and energy into the business and I feel so proud for what we have achieved. My aim has always been to give families the opportunity to make creative memories together...I hope I can continue to do so. That will make me so happy. 

Do you have a creative tip for our readers? 
I always tell myself enjoy being creative and remember your own creations are always the best...made with love and sparkle!

Great Xmas Workshop for the little ones

Took our 2 year old to the Xmas Workshop and he really enjoyed it. Lots of paint, pens and accessories to use (which are free). You can turn up and select a range of items to decorate that are all reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.

My little girl loves coming to The Creation Station every week. Sam plans such wonderful activities that tie in beautifully around a theme and gives my little girl an opportunity to explore sensory and craft activities in such an exciting way. The amount we get through in the time is amazing and Sam does such an brilliant job of making the class engaging and fun. Sam is so accommodating of anyone wishing to join the class and is very welcoming and enthusiastic. Would recommend this class to everyone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Superb Arty Party for my 6 year old. All her friends enjoyed it throughly and the parents were very impressed with how engaged the children were. The canvas painting and clay modelling was a hit. Melanie and her team are fantastic. Thank you. 100% recommendation.

Hayes Creation Station

Went to our first Creation Station session today, it was great! My four year old grandson loved the activities and was delighted to take home his wind sock! Well paced and resourced. So good to go to something original and fun. We're both looking forward to next week! Hilary and Elliot
