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.

Nat has been brilliant

Nat has been brilliant. We have had two packs of the most amazing crafts delivered to our door during lockdown. We have had paints, canvases, pipe cleaners all sorts of fun crafts with ideas to have fun with. Things that we had never heard of or seen before such as noodle doodles. We can’t wait to come to one of your sessions when things get back to normal more.

The live online creative class

The live online creative class is not only fun, relaxed and educational it has also given my girls something to look forward to weekly and a masterpiece or three to show and be proud of afterward. Both my girls have taken the techniques used from the classes to create more art through out the week. I would highly recommend the Creation Station live online classes. *****

We find Creation station brilliant

We find Creation station brilliant! A wide range of activities using all kinds of materials (all supplied to!) with a different theme each week. Very entertaining for my 6 year old to let their creative side shine! The host is very friendly and always patient with the children. The sessions usually last for around 12 weeks so great value for an after school club! My little one always looks forward to it! We are currently attending online creation station during lockdown and it’s fantastic! All Materials supplied to our door with super easy instructions to follow (all organised by our fantastic host Jude) It’s kept our routine which is very important for little people. We love it!!

I order these letters quite regularly…good price, speedy delivery.

I order these letters quite regularly but noticed they had gone up in price from last time, so I looked directly at your site. I was surprised to see that to purchase directly from you was cheaper, so that it what I did. The speed of delivery was excellent and I will always come straight to you in future for my craft supplies.
