Hello from Alison

Hello, I'm Alison and I run the Creation Station franchise for Hereford. I'm a step-mom, a nanny and a super-fun auntie and have spent my life surrounded with children so I know first-hand what it's like to find fun 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 pre-school 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 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. If you have an event, group booking or a particular request please send me an email and I will respond within 2 working days.

About Alison


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
Quite simply, I realised that life is too short to not enjoy what you do for a living. I've always loved being creative and I enjoy working and being around people. Running The Creation Station Hereford gives me the perfect platform to do both of these things whilst being my own boss and adding in my own creative flair.  

The thought that I can inspire an individual to use their imagination and use arts and crafts to make something they're proud of constantly makes me smile, who wouldn't want a job where that's their main task everyday?  

I absolutely LOVE everything about running the sessions; seeing a beaming baby smile because they're covered in squidgy paint or a little girl making a crown so she can be a princess, having a little boy so excited to run into class to tell me that his grass grew in his fairy garden we made, listening to a lovely lady in a retirement home telling me how a picture of the brooch we made together was published in an Australian magazine, these are the sorts of things I now do every single day and it's fantastic!  

I spent many years doing all the 'right things' to have a successful career in the corporate world, university, professional training and hard toil to get to the top and the higher I got the more unhappy I became being in that world full time; I needed a change and now I'm free to live my life covered in paint and glitter and loving every minute x  

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I’m also a Qualified Accountant.  I was a Finance Director/Head of Finance.  I know!  The Creation Station is just a slight change in career path isn't it?!  

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
Meeting people, I love helping and working with people of all ages and arts and crafts is a perfect way to help people relax, chat and enjoy themselves (and it's my guilty pleasure too) 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I'm allergic to everything!  I have a lot of allergies including a severe dairy allergy (that means I can't eat chocolate!)  

Things I love doing. 
I have a passion for wildlife holidays and an addiction to African Safaris!  I have been on Safari many times and I even got married in Kenya.  I also love music, going to concerts and musical theatre. 

My favourite joke.  
What do you call a man with a bag of leaves on his head? Russell!   

My favourite food.  
Chinese food, sizzling fillet steak Cantonese style is a firm favourite.  I'm also quite partial to Haribo!

Brilliant, would definitely come again.

We booked to come to this session as my daughter loves Pirates and this was a pirate themed session. This was our first Creation Station experience but won't be our last. It was brilliant value for money, my daughter got to take home everything she made, it was set out well and wasn't too overcrowded around each activity, had just the right amount of children. My daughter made all the pirate themed things and now plays pirates with them at home. Fab session.
