The Creation Station's Sarah Cressall features in Craft Business Magazine

Sarah Cressall's kitchen start-up business was designed to give her own three young boys, creative opportunities to spark their own journey of exploration, discovery and learning.   Sarah also thought that other people would enjoy running their own flexible and rewarding business.  That was 2002 and now The Creation Station has inspired over one million children and adults through an amazing team of one hundred plus franchise owners. The business has been recognised by a whole roomful of awards and has featured on BBC, CBeebies, ITV, SKY and MTV.   

There is no slowing down Sarah's drive to promote creativity.  Sarah's  book "Creative Sparks - ideas to inspire you and yours " shot to number one on Amazon within the first 24-hours. Since then, Sarah has been out and about speaking at events, conducting radio interviews and attending award ceremonies. With one focus in mind, Sarah continues to work to help promote creativity in all aspects of our lives including education, entertainment, recreation, well-being and care.     

Naturally, Craft Business magazine is a fitting publication for a one-to-one question & answers session with Sarah and here's what they talked about... 

Sarah Interview 1.1  

The Creation Station now provides  opportunities to get creative in lots of ways, from creative baby and preschool classes, arty parties, creative after-school clubs and school workshops, adults craft events and workshops for the elderly, plus event entertainment for corporate days, shopping centres and festivals.

Sarah interview 1.2

Within the article, Sarah talks about what she looks for when introducing new business owners to The Creation Station, and what she believes is the magical ingredient to a successful creative business. When talking with Craft editor Mark Hayhurst Sarah said:

"Having a business with a purpose makes all the difference.  We have been able to make a positive difference to so many because of the calibre of our franchise owners. They also care about making a difference and are people people! They like being around people, kids and adults, they are proactive and have a positive attitude.”

Slime King!

We booked a Slime Party for our 10 yr old and friends. This party went beyond our expectations; it was superb from start to finish. The host, Mark, could not do enough for us. He was very popular with the kids, extremely knowledgeable in everything slime, made sure everyone had a great time and made the birthday person feel extra special. The little extras, such as party bags, slime and foam clay creation to take home were lovely. And a really special memento for the birthday child to take home to remind them that they had, in Mark's words, "the slime of their lives"! I have recommended The Creation Station to all my friends. Thank you Mark, you were brilliant.

A great interactive session for the kids. Facilitator showed great enthusiasm and made every child feel welcomed. Very affordable too. One recommendation I would have is to maybe explain the science behind how the ingredients bond to make slime as some children were old enough to understand and may have been curious.

I hired Creation Station for my daughter’s 6th birthday party where they made slime and animal masks, they were absolutely brilliant and the children loved it. I had so many enquires from parents for their contact details, would highly recommend. Thank you! See you next year!
