Hello from Hanli

Hello, my name is Hanli and I run the Creation Station in Basildon. I am a teacher and love working with children, inspiring their creativity. We as a family value our time together and I want to inspire my two children to be creative and reach for their dreams no matter what!

This is where my Creation Station journey began! Both my children are now in school and this gave me the opportunity to follow my heart and dreams. Being able to spend quality time with my family and do what makes me happy was the best way to ensure a well-balanced life for us all.

I absolutely love being creative! Arts and crafts are a great way to inspire minds and creativity and I feel it is a huge privilege to see how little ones, and adults, thrive and grow. It really makes what I do magical!

As a family, we love spending time together. We enjoy walking, playing games and doing arts and crafts. I feel like this is my perfect world... to be able to combine all these things I love with my business.
