Creation Station in Aston Clinton with…

Creation Station in Aston Clinton with Nicola has been one of the best value, easy going and generous activities that I have taken my little boy to since he was born. When we started going my little guy was a bit shy about creating, shy with people and wouldn't say his name. Now he strolls in and asks "What are we doing this week, Nicola?" He confidentially paints, draws, squeezes, squirts and excitedly tells people on the bus where he is going. To say we love this group is an understatement! Absolutely gutted that there is only one session left. Thank you Nicola for all the amazingly fun and inventive artwork. Thank you for all the tea. Thankyou for the extra mile you go each week to make the kids happy..water...sand..paints..snow...all after the main paintings and craft have finished..that extra time gave parents a break... ... thanks for not being worried about; mess or jewels in the playdough...colours in the glue... glitter everywhere..kids exploring ..kids running about with tinsel.. . about cross craft medium contamination!! Basically thanks for a no stress fun activity! You are very much appreciated. We will miss you a lot. Especially, H. Mondays won't be the same. sniff.

Brilliant class

Absolutely brilliant and creative after school class which my daughter really enjoys attending. There is a great structure so we know what the children are doing each week.

My daughter loves the after school…

My daughter loves the after school sessions, but she is only 5 and I feel the themes are aimed a bit too high - learning about a technique or art material might be better than a specific artist each week?!

I have a child with additional needs who looks forward to class every week. Laurie is so patient with him and he really loves to go. They do a really wide range of crafts and ideas and come home with some lovely things (although I have nowhere to put them all now!) Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Really easy to book and great price

Really easy to book and great price! My daughter (7 months) attended her first discovery session, after we've been to a tiny treasure session and a drop in session, she absolutely loved it, as did I. I would definitely recommend going to creation station sessions and Joanna is fab too.
