About Tracey


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
I decided to run my own Creation Station Franchise as we were planning to relocate from South East London to Suffolk. Having gone back to work full time since Isabelle was a year old, I really wanted a more flexible career that would allow me work around school hours. I spent quite a while thinking about different options but decided that I would like to work with children. I looked at various franchises, but The Creation Station really stood out as I have always loved arts & crafts & I knew that it would have been the sort of class that I would have loved to do with Isabelle!  

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
Before The Creation Station, I was a childrenswear buyer at a large high street retailer. I used to buy schoolwear so had a limited colour palette of grey, black & navy. Now I love using a whole rainbow of colours every day! 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love getting to know little ones & their parents or carers. It's great seeing their confidence and abilities develop over the the term! 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I once followed Brian Dowling from Big Brother 2 around Selfridges, whilst on the phone to my boyfriend in Hackney, giving him a detailed account of which department Brian was now in & what he was looking at.  

Things I love doing. 
Family days, beach days, going to art galleries, sunny days in the garden, watching Gogglebox, drinking wine. 

My favourite joke.  
Knock Knock  Who's there?  Wooden shoe  Wooden shoe who?  Wooden shoe like to know!! 

My favourite food.  
I do like a curry!

Tracey was amazing

Tracey was amazing, putting huge effort into making the party special for my 9 year old. The children (both sexes) were aged between 8 and 11 and all produced some wonderful art under Tracey's careful guidance. A number of mums have contacted me after the party saying the canvases they painted with their initials on have already gone up on their walls. Thank you, Tracey, a party to be remembered - treasured - by all, and what's more, incredible value for money, especially as Tracey provided all the party bags too.

Well organised Xmas card session

Well organised, nice amount of people with play-doh and tools out for the children to amuse themselves whilst waiting for their prints to be taken. Good advice from the organiser. Venue was fine, just a little on the chilly side. Can order products there and then and make payment easily.

Went to the Christmas card workshop was very well organised and fun for the kids would recommend this to anyone wanting a cute card. Was also reasonably priced for cards and class.
