Hello from Helen

Hello, I'm Helen and I run The Creation Station franchise for Horsforth, Rawdon, Cookridge and Bramhope. I'm a parent of an energetic daughter 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'm 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, 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 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.

About Helen


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station.
I really needed a better work/life balance, to spend more time with Madi and needed more creativity in my life. I'd thought about running my own art classes on a Saturday morning a couple of years ago but with working 4 days a week there was no way I was ever going to have the time to even think about setting it up. I'd kind of forgotten about it and carried on as I was until I started to get my creative cravings again. I started looking online for inspiration and found The Creation Station. When the brochure came I actually felt all tingly reading it, it made me feel excited and I just knew it was right thing for me! I showed it to a couple of close friends and they immediately said 'That's you! That's perfect for you'! I could set it up to fit around other things instead of just working 9 'til 5, I could spend more time with my Madi before she gets to high school and it was doing something I love. It gives me the flexibility to build the business up as much or as little as I want, I can take my foot off the pedal when I want to or go full steam ahead! And the best bit is everything's done for you, not like little me setting up on my own, when I see how much is already put in place and the amazing training you get, there's no way I could have ever set up anything as professional and successful so quickly on my own. There's a brilliant support network behind me, the session plans are all done for me, and everything's tried and tested. It was a total no brainer to go for it! 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I've worked at a market research company for nearly 9 years, and worked as a Media & Design Manager in the same industry for 18 years. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love the flexibility of being able to choose which classes to run and how often I run them. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I have sung on stage with Leona Lewis, Russell Watson, G4 and Blake as part of the All for One Choir. With the same choir I auditioned for BGT and we got through to the 2nd round!

Things I love doing. 
Painting landscapes, anything creative, singing, spending time with lovely daughter, watching Disney films, spending time with my amazing friends. 

My favourite food.  
Stew and dumplings.

Creative Crafters session

Has a great evening at the Creative Crafters session for adults recently. Really relaxed atmosphere, the time flew by and I had 4 handmade decorations and a rag wreath to bring home with me. Would definitely recommend!

Adult Craft Evenings

Great idea - Adult Craft Evening - nibbles, drinks and crafts whilst you hang out with your friends. I would recommend this type of evening to all.
