About Melanie


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
For some time I had been hankering after an opportunity to start my own business. To do something I love, that fuelled my creative nature, involved sharing my passion for colour and inspiring others to develop confidence and skills through art and crafts. As a mum I was also looking for something that would enable me to be home more, that I could involve my own children in, that I felt made a difference and was an ethical positive work model to be involved in.  I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled upon The Creation Station franchise and the more I looked into the franchise the more I felt it was the right business path for me.   After attending a discovery day I knew this is what I had be seeking to fulfil many of my personal goals, from being my own boss, becoming employer, to sharing a love for all things creative and the excuse to buy lots more craft materials! 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I worked as a senior support officer for adults with multiple disabilities. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.   
I love that I'm sharing my passion for exploring colour and all things shiny. It's rewarding seeing happy smiling faces of children and adults alike when they are in the thick of making and creating. The creation station has give freedom to choose how my business develops and a sense of achievement from running my Franchise. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I'm a qualified children's gym instructor. 

Things I love doing. 
Making & creating, up-cycling/repurposing furniture, walking, reading, singing (badly), raising my family, diy, cooking and eating.  

My favourite joke.  
Knock Knock,  who's there?  You.  You who.  

My favourite food.  
My Mums roast dinner.

Absolutely loved the baby's 1st christmas craft session that I attended. Melanie was extremely welcoming and helpful and got fabulous footprints from my 10 week old. Will definitely go to another session again!

Great creative fun in a small and friendly group

My little boy absolutely loved his first class. We can’t wait for the next one The group was small and relaxed and Mel the leader was very warm and welcoming. The only negative thing I have to say is that the class just isn’t long enough, we could have played for hours

fantastic Slime Party

Mel couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. we had a slime party for my 9 year olds birthday. All the girls had great fun , it kept their attention for the whole party. All the products used were of high standard and Mel was lovely, we slightly ran out of time to finish the second activity but it was put inside the girls party bags to finish at home and Mel was quite happy to stay longer to finish but the girls were being picked up. My daughter has already said she wants the same party next year, which says it all. Highly recommend.

Pumpkin fun!

I did the pumpkin decorating today with my toddler and thought it was excellent. Very well set up, Mel has thought of everything. Even when my boy ruined the sharpies by dipping them in paint (oooops)! Fun, organised and relaxed atmosphere.. brilliant!
