The Creation Station Celebrates 13 Years Inspiring Children's Imaginations  

Creating a nationally loved brand, helping to inspire children's potential and being there for your own children, is not something you normally associate together.

However, mum to three Sarah Cressall, has achieved all three with her award winning Creation Station business and has developed the business into a successful franchise model enabling other people the opportunity to inspire imaginations in their local communities.

“Creativity is so important for children to explore, discover and develop their own potential. It encourages so many important skills as well as problem solving, thinking and self esteem” says Sarah Cressall, founder of the Creation Station “As a society we don’t provide for this, schools and parents don’t have the time, yet it is fundamental in order for our children to blossom and develop.  We can’t teach our children everything, we don’t know what the future holds, we need to teach them how to learn, think and discover, this is what creativity gives.”

"Since I launched The Creation Station I had a real sense of  ‘Why’ I was developing a new concept and model for children’s creative play. I didn’t realise at the time, that this would be so fundamental. It’s often called ‘purpose’ and it has been the most influential factor on the success of The Creation Station brand and on my own happiness (and sanity!) as well," says Sarah Cressall.

Our purpose is to inspire imaginations and nurture potential-






  • We strive to nurture each child’s potential through educational  hands on creative classes, parties clubs and events from 6 month to 11 years.







  • We value our franchise owners and work to help them achieve their ambitions and goals, through nurturing their potential and providing practical support.







  • We support local communities, charities and businesses to help engage with wider audiences.


Fundamentally we want to make a positive difference.

The Creation Station has now helped inspire 170,000 children and families, and currently deliver approx. 1000 creative experiences each week for children aged 6 months to 11 years. This includes award winning Baby Discover, Little Explorer and Family Fun classes, Birthday Parties, Out of School Clubs, Fun Arty Box monthly subscriptions and events. There is a national team of over 100 Creation Station owners and an online store of over 13,000 art & crafts products.

What a fabulous party

What a fabulous party. Thank you Nicola. You were a great host. The children loved it. Downtime from homeschooling and a chance to catch up via zoom with their friends whilst making slime. So well organised and run. Lots of laughs and giggles had by all. Would highly recommend

I had a really great time with Claire in tonight’s session on creating a mindfulness scrap book. I have never tried scrapbooking before and may have found a new hobby now!

Excellent! Jude is great. My kids are normally quite nervous and reluctant to join in, but they both love it, plus it keeps them stimulated doing something fun.
