We have seen some wonderful creations and heard some great stories about the power of creativity this month.

Being creative unlocks so many aspects of our lives: from developing essential early learning skills to building self-esteem and problem-solving skills, to having fun and doing things you enjoy or have never done before

During February we were delighted to provide creative fun for the great ‘Whizz kids’ charity in the North East. Brad Thompson, Abbie Melia and Sharon Fisher ran three events over different weekends and to use Sharon’s words “The organisers and kids LOVED it and I LOVED it too! I love what we do at Creation Station!”’  Whizz kids

Activities included; spray painting graffiti, creating bubble wrap throw-about pom-poms and fabric painting bags. The kids got really stuck in and had a truly colourful and creative experience.  

We got in the festival mood quite early in Devon, with crowns and dancing gear created and used to party at a local rave.  Victoria Rundle was inundated with creative kids and adults finding their creative groove.

We visited eighteen universities across the UK and helped students get creative by marbling phone cases. Over 5,000 phone cases were marbled and each one was different -  the effects were truly awesome.

We celebrated Chinese New Year and welcomed in the year of the Dog. We worked out what animal we were and created our own animal puppets. Yat On and Yat Chen, run the Creation Station classes in Cantonese too, so it was a double celebration for us.

The sunshine arrived in brightly coloured clay creations in some of our Arty Parties. This gorgeous creation is from a very special day in Taunton with Janna Tratt

Our after-school Create Clubs involved helping kids to get inspired by other cultures, from different times and from around the world. We explored the lives of cave people and the ways they communicated. Joscelin Hennigan and her creative kids even made their own indoor fire.

The low winter sun is no problem in Bristol as creative kids designed their own car shades and explored mark making and then popped the shades on the actual windows. Lovely job Sue Hammond! Eight years into Creation Station the creativity just oozes!

We’ve been exploring and mixing our own colours with babies and toddlers. Love these images from Vicky Breakspear.  

We’ve been creating Tiny Treasures keepsakes in workshops across the UK for Mother’s Day and for Easter gifts. Your baby doesn’t stay this small for long, so it’s wonderful to help people create some treasured memories.

And yes, we’ve been going down the pub… our adult creative crafts are in full swing with lots of chatter. lovely crafts and new friends made too.  (Sssh – don’t tell anyone…  It just doesn’t feel like work!)

In our intergenerational workshops, we brought our young creative kids and lovely senior citizens together. These workshops are great fun and really do help you recognise the power of shared creative activities.

We got together for our inspiring imagination conferences at the beginning of February to celebrate sixteen years of inspiring imaginations and ‘unleashing the wonder within’. It was great fun, with lots of new developments and our Creation Station franchise owners were recognised for the wonderful work they do to inspire their local communities’ imaginations.

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.
