Hello from Joanna

Hello, I'm Joanna and I run the Creation Station franchise for Lancaster and Kendal. I'm a parent of two children so I know first-hand what it's like to find fun classes and 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 preschool baby and toddler classes, arty birthday party entertainment, 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 I'll be happy to help. You can choose the start date that suits 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 (The Creation Station Lancaster) 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. Joanna :-)

About Joanna


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
I have been teaching for 15 years and there have been a lot of changes, both personally and in the profession, not the least of which is that I become a mum to Luke and Bess. After a lot of soul searching, I decided that I was no longer happy teaching full time, and wanted something that was both more fulfilling and more flexible while still working with children.  I love crafting and making myself so when The Creation Station kept popping up on my Facebook feed it immediately caught my eye. After applying for an information pack and attending a Discovery Morning, I decided that this was for me. It combines all the things I love: arts and crafts, creating and making, working with children, the opportunity to meet other adults while letting me work around my children, being able to attend school plays and assemblies and do the school run. And not only are they things I love, they are things that I truly believe are important: giving children the opportunity to explore and discover, use their imaginations and develop their creativity, and also giving parents the opportunity to meet and get to know other parents. 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I was a Key Stage Two teacher. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love so many things about running my own Creation Station! I love meeting all the amazing creative children and their grown ups, I love that what each child makes is different and unique to them and I love the flexibility that running my own Creation Station gives me. 

Something you probably don’t know about me.
As a student, I lived in Copenhagen for a term. It was an amazing 3 months and I loved every second. 

Things I love doing. 
Spending time with my family, visiting historical places, reading and of course, crafting! 

My favourite joke.  
I really struggle to remember jokes but my daughter keeps telling me this one: What do you get if you cross a sheep with chocolate? A chocolate baa! 

My favourite food.  
Liquorice-the saltier, the better!

Jo from Creation Station hosted my 4…

Jo from Creation Station hosted my 4 year olds party. She done a fantastic job of keeping a room full of excitable 4 year olds interested in the actives that had were planned. She interacted well with kids and parents. Made my job so much easier and I was able to concentrate on getting the food out on time and getting lots of photos. Parents impressed with party bags and children get to take home their works of art.

The session was brilliant

The session was brilliant. Joanna was a perfectionist, she completely understood that due to the nature of the class, artworks had to be immaculate (very difficult for a bunch of babies!!). She was extremely patient and managed a very busy crowd so well. There were masses of materials and you were free to do as you pleased. We didn't feel rushed. Great session, definitely recommended!

Christmas card making!

Can’t fault Jo and her sessions. We’ve attended a couple of them and nothing is too much trouble and my little one loves getting messy. Can’t wait to get my Christmas cards through from this session!! Roll on December when we can start again with my youngest.
