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 8 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!).  

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!


"Make your mark and see where it takes you....."

I would not hesitate to recommend a Creation Station Birthday party! I chose this style of party for my five year old daughter as I wanted something structured and a little different. The whole process of organising the party was straightforward and very well organised. Nicki quickly captured and maintained the children's interest and the activities were appealing to boys and girls. I particularly liked that that their creations formed the contents of their party bags. Thank you Nicki and the Creation Station!

Fabulous party

Fabulous party for my daughter’s 5th birthday. Slick organisation and everything went very smoothly on the day. Most importantly the kids all loved their creations and were happy party goers throughout! Thanks Nicki.

A fantastic service

A fantastic service! The children absolutely loved the craft activities available. Nicki got all the children really engaged. She encouraged them to try out different techniques and colours so they made beautiful artwork. It is a brilliant idea for a party as it works for children of all ages. My children have proudly displayed their work at home after the party. Nicki made all the arrangements without any problems. It took the stress out of party organising an event with 19 children.

Worth every minute and every penny

I’ve been doing the Christmas Card making session with my son for 3 consecutive years; it’s brilliant! Nikki is incredible with all kids; and gets amazing hand and footprints whether they’re newborns or toddlers with ants in their pants! There’s always a HUGE range of stationary, pens, sparkles, and decorations. In addition, while parents finesse the card designs, there’s plenty of toys and games for the kids to keep them occupied... Looking forward to coming again next year!
