We also have some fantastic adult craft classes to give you a bit of time to relax away from the kids.    

Why I decided to run my own Creation Station:
I decided to run my own Creation Station because after having my little boy i wanted to be able to watch him grow and be there when he needed me. I have always loved arts and crafts so The Creation Station Appealed to me instantly!  

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station:
It feels like a lifetime ago! I've had various jobs, having trained in Jewellery & Metalwork i stayed in the jewellery industry for a while, eventually moving to an office role and finally in marketing before starting my family!

Something you probably don’t know about me: 
I can play the piano. 

Things I love doing: 
i love making things and always have a new project on the go! I also love snuggling up with a good book!

My favourite colour:
my favourite colour is Green!

Really enjoyable morning with my son

Really enjoyable morning with my son. Great making a mess and creating something together! Would recommend to anyone - perhaps easier with a child that can sit up confidently.

Fantastic activities with a fantastic…

Fantastic activities with a fantastic leader. My 2 year old daughter loves this class. It has introduced new textures to her and allowed her to get really messy (without me having to worry about my house in the process - always a benefit!). It is a great way to spend quality time with your little ones whilst they are really enjoying themselves. It has also helped with recognising colours and interacting with other children. Thank you

Creative, messy and fun! Love it.

Claire is friendly and has been welcoming from the beginning. The class is good, messy fun and we love that we get to take home our artwork at the end. Would recommend to anyone looking for some artistic fun! My daughter has been coming since she was 6 months old and we both love it.

Excellence!!!!!

I have been attending sessions with Claire Darnley for several years with my Granddaughter and now with my Grandson. She provides an outstanding provision for various age groups. Friendly relaxed environment where you can meet new people in a non judgemental environment. You relax chat and share the exploration of play as your child makes the first steps to socialising, exploration, discovery. It is a fun, fun, time that is met with structured sessions scafolding play and developing themes. It is excellent!!!

lots of fun!!

Claire is really dedicated to getting the children involved and works hard at building their confidence to explore the array of materials available to explore. The sessions are very well planned and lots of fun too! I would definitely recommend the creation station sessions for all children.
