Brilliant session

Brilliant session! Debs was friendly and welcoming. She was on hand to help with making the footprints with my 6-month old (who wasn’t a fan of having her feet painted!!) Debs was accommodating in allowing me to take home some craft bits because we didn’t get a chance to make the canvas because of the tears! Would thoroughly recommend the sessions to friends and family.

Thank you to Rosie at Creative Station

We have attended a number of classes with Rosie at Creative Station Yarm and surrounding areas. She is simply wonderful! Nothing is too much bother for her. She is great with both of my children and we come away with beautiful crafts to treasure each time. She clearly loves what she does. Certainly recommend!

Creation Station Christmas Experience.

My little girl and niece had a fun filled hour making some Christmas decorations. They were encouraged to make them on their own, but had help when needed. The girls are 4 and 5 years old. They were given friendly fun instructions, which they understood. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we as parents were able to sit back and enjoy a coffee and a chat with the knowledge that the girls were content. Would recommend Creation station.
