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 an autistic adult telling me why he's doing what he's doing and feeling comfortable talking to me or helping a pensioner make a birthday card for her grandson and listening to her stories, 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, 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 was an Accountant!  Finance Director, Head of Finance or whatever other fancy titles they gave me.  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!

amazing party entertainment

Alison provided the entertainment for my sons 5th birthday party with 25 children there and how amazing the day was the kids had so much fun and I had countless children and adults tell me how much better it was having something creative for the children to do and less noise or a disco or a superhero/princess entertainer. The kids loved creating their own bags to put their creations into and Alison’s even gave my son a extra surprise gift at the party which made his day. Alison herself is very bubbly and fun and you can tell she loves what she does overall the whole day was amazing with the help of creation station I can’t recommend Alison highly enough I would defiantly rebook another birthday party with Alison using a different selection of activities as there is so many packages to choose from.

The creation station Hereford @ The Hereford food festival

I have now worked with Alson - The Creation Station Hereford at The Hereford Food Festival on two occasions and have been very impressed with her hard working ethos, friendly nature and incredible ability to ensure a room FULL of small people are content!!! (No easy task you’ll know if you have children!!) She brings my events to life with her “Stations” at my large festivals and helps small and bigger children come off the phones, tablets and screens and enjoy their crafting again. The children enjoy literally every second and its a huge pull for my event to have her there with us providing such a unique service. I love working wth The Creation Station Hereford and know that we will do for years to come.

Creation Station is so much fun!

Creation Station is so much fun! Alison is so friendly and approachable and her sessions are always enjoyable and very messy (which we love!) I started coming to Alison’s sessions when my son was about 5 months old and he’s now 14 months...he thoroughly enjoys himself here.
