Hello from Lisa

Hello, I'm Lisa and I run the Creation Station franchise for Bournemouth and Christchurch. I'm a mum of two daughters so I know first-hand what it's like to find fun classes and activities that spark their natural curiosity and develop their growing minds. Plus, I know the value of meeting other like-minded parents and spending good, quality time with grown ups. That's why I am delighted to be able to help you with this through a whole range of our award-winning craft classes such as our lovely newborn keepsake classes, our preschool baby and toddler classes, arty birthday party entertainment, after school clubs, family fun classes and lots of other events. We also have some fantastic adult craft events to give you a bit of time away from the kids. You can find out more about all of our children's art and crafts classes, rainy day activities and everything else going on in and around my area by clicking on the art and crafts activities that interest you below. Or drop me an email and I'll be happy to help. You can choose the dates that suit you best and book and pay for classes online with ease and convenience. To be the first to receive news of classes, events and special offers, please like my Facebook page to be sure not to miss out on our new creative updates. If you have an event, group booking or a particular request please send me an email and I will endeavour to respond within 2 working days.

About Lisa


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
I took the brave decision to invest in my franchise back in the summer of 2010, after receiving the news of redundancy whilst I was still on maternity leave with my second child. At the time my youngest daughter was only a year old and my eldest daughter just three.  The values of the business are what stood out for me, and the flexibility of being my own boss. There wouldn't be many employers eager to take on a new mum with two young children, and be willing to let you choose your working hours to fit around childcare, school holidays or even let them come to work with me!  I have always had a passion for creativity from a very young age, and somehow lost some of that passion over the years whilst caught up in the corporate business world. So when the logo caught my eye whilst browsing the workingmums website, I had to find out more. I instantly felt excited and it was one of those moments in your life, when an opportunity presents itself, it was now or never! 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
Believe it or not, my life before Creation Station was very different. I spent over 10 years working for a large American Corporate Investment Bank based in Bournemouth. Before I had children, it was normal to work long hours and deliver a high customer service experience to top tier clients. I actually loved my job, ensuring standards were maintained and clients were happy. However things changed considerably after my first child was born, and I was unable to return to my previous job. Flexible working arrangements were very hard to come by, and following the huge financial crisis, redundancies were almost inevitable.  

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love getting to know all my class members, nurturing their passion for creativity and inspiring their imaginations. Watching the children grow and develop as they progress through the classes, hearing all the enthusiastic chatter as they engage with each other, all the smiles, laughs and hugs we have along the way! Knowing that I am contributing positively to our children's futures within our own community.  

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
Well, being a self-employed business working Mummy looking after my children and our home single handed, I am often performing super quick costume changes throughout the day to suit my role....cook, cleaner, nurse, taxi driver, financial adviser, teacher, entertainer, superhero!! Oh and in my spare time (ha! ha) I love to collapse on the sofa for a sneaky nap 

Things I love doing. 
I love being outdoors with my children, whether that be playing in the garden, down the beach or walks through the forest. 

My favourite joke.  
I don't have a favourite joke but my favourite quote is "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken" - Oscar Wilde 

My favourite food.  
Chocolate...dark, milk, white whatever the flavour I love it!

My thoughts on Messy Play

The experience was better than i imagined, i felt so at home there, chatted to other mums, there were also dads there too, which is always great to see. Its definatly Messy Play, my son loved the paint it got everywhere but don't worry the paints even edible, slime there too but not to worry theres water trays there to wash your baby down after.

Lisa is amazing she’s always been passionate in what she does which brings out the excitement and creativity in the children! My daughter loves it so much that it helps her when other stuff in school is a bit hectic. And a great release also therapeutic in helping her to focus on the hectic. Thank you for what you do Lisa!!
