Hello from Nicki

Hello, I'm Nicki Smith and I run the Creation Station franchise for Bath and the surrounding area. I'm a parent of two lively and imaginative girls 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, 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. 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 on 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 Nicki


Hi there,

I have been running The Creation Station Bath for over 6 years now.  They say that if you can  manage to combine a career with a passion, then your working life is a whole lot enjoyable......and I can pretty much confirm that!  What's not to love about getting crafty with fab children and adults all week and getting to put a smile on people's faces??

In all seriousness, I feel really privileged to be a fun part of so many people's week.  I love watching children develop and grow in confidence.  I love building relationships with families in the area (so many younger siblings are joining me now!).  I love the look of glee in little ones' eyes when they realise that it is absolutely, totally and utterly okay to get a bit messy when they are with me!  And after a difficult time adjusting to motherhood myself, I always try to provide a friendly, non-judgemental environment for all mums and carers.

The Creation Station Bath is part of our family now. You will often get to see the rest of the gang at classes, events and Saturday clubs - my long-suffering, Primary school teacher husband, Robin and my two girls Aimee (an irrepressible bundle of creative energy!) and Cerys (bright, bossy and fiercely loving!).  I am also incredibly lucky to have the most awesome colleague Kim who takes time out from looking after 1 year old beauty Grace and husband Martyn to help me run classes, parties, events, clubs and my life!!  Without her, my chocolate and wine consumption would dramatically increase!!

On the odd chance I am not running something arty, I love Welsh rugby, indie music, taking photos and exploring the great outdoors with the family.  Oh and art and crafts - I quite like that too!  And sleep......I do like to sleep! ;-)

So, when you meet me, don't expect me to be suited and booted with perfect hair and make-up!  I am most likely to be covered in paint splatters, with PVA drying up my arms and the worst manicure in the world!  However, you will be welcomed to my own business with a big smile and an open invitation to have fun.  Come and join us!

I had a brilliant morning with my baby making gorgeous keepsakes using her footprints. I wouldn’t have been able to make these without Nicki and Kim’s help and it was great not to have to clear up after too! I would highly recommend to other mums and dads and their babies.

Creation Station Bath Party - Amazing!

Creation Station Bath - Nicki gave us an excellent birthday party for our little man’s first birthday. The right pace for the babies, great fun and so nice to have something to take away as a memento. Couldn’t have wished for more. I’ve been to Nicki’s class since my little one was 5 months old and he loves the activity but also the special attention Nicki gives everyone. Both the classes and the party are such fun and really get him excited as soon as he gets his little red suit on! Thanks Nicki. Jamesy and I will see you soon. Xx
