Hello from Christina

Hello, I'm Christina and I run the Creation Station franchise for Gateshead. I'm a parent of 2 girls 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 classes 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 our new creative updates.

About Christina


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
I have 2 daughters Jessica and Anna. Over the years i have took my girls to lots of groups and i started to realise the impact they have had,  not just on my girls but me too. I have watched my girls confidence grow and grow, they have learnt to make friends in new situations, share well and i have seen how this has had a positive effect through to now with Jessica's school life. All three of us have made some amazing friends who we have shared some fabulous adventures with and we still see each other regularly. My confidence has grown massively and i have made some lifetime friends who have been a tremendous support. Above all else we have lots of fun together. When I started to attended Creation station sessions with my daughters we all loved it. We made some lovely works of art, the session were structured but yet relaxed and child led, it was different and most importantly we all had fun. I started to think to myself i would love to do this. The proud smile from the kids when the show there finished art work and to have such an impact on a family is amazing. I thought i would love to make a difference to families, to help a child grow, to support a mam just by being there, provide an opportunity to meet other families and create lasting friendship. 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I worked in ladies retail as a supervisor. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
Having fun. Seeing how creative the kids are and how proud they are of what they make or do. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I love all things Disney and my favourite character is Pluto. 

Things I love doing. 
I love to listen to music and spend time with my family. From arts and crafts with the girls, trips to beach or mini adventures. 

My favourite joke.  
Why is 6 afraid of 7?    Because 7, 8 (ate),9   

My favourite food.  
Gammon Dinners and chips.

Not a good welcome!

My son and daughter in law (visiting from NZ) brought their 8mth baby to the session in Kibblesworth, there was only 3 more children there.They were a bit late for the start of the activities (you can't guarantee a schedule with an 8mth old ) they felt there was no welcome to the group by the leader. Just told where they could get materials from. One of the activities was to decorate a sock, none available, they were all gone, I'd bought the ticket in advance so would have thought enough resources would have been available? Only 4 children were there! Just as well my grandson wasn't old enough to realise he was missing out.They said it was otherwise a lovely session but felt a bit underwhelmed at the initial meeting and the footprint picture of the mice with the poem is a lovely keepsake of Euans first Christmas x

The class was great with good ideas and a range of materials available for the children to use. The only down side was that there wasn't really enough time for the older children to complete their creations!

I went along for the first time with my 11 month old son, was made to feel very welcome. It was his first time doing any kind of messy play involving paint and he loved it we even took away our handmade mobile with his little handprints on that I will treasure. We will definitely be going back.
