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!

You have to try this!

I can't recommend Creation Station enough! My daughter and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Sarah is so sweet, happy, kind and accommodating. So different to your run of the mill baby classes, and excellently organised x

I went along for the first time with my 11 month old son, was made to feel very welcome. It was his first time doing any kind of messy play involving paint and he loved it we even took away our handmade mobile with his little handprints on that I will treasure. We will definitely be going back.

Fun Christmas card making workshop

Christmas card making workshop was great fun. My daughter loved getting her feet painted (apparently it tickled), the results looked great and Lisa had great activities for my daughter to do whilst put the finishing touches to the cards.

Nakita hosted my son's Creation station party at the weekend. It was fab! Painting and play doh. The children loved getting messy (and I enjoyed not having to deal with the mess!!) It kept them busy for much longer than I expected and it was so lively that they got to take their creations home. Nakita was so lovely with the children and helpful advising the best options for the age group. The request for a submarine theme didnt faze her either!! Would highly recommend and hope to use again in the future.
