Hello from Olivia

Hi, my name is Olivia and I run the Creation Station in Rotherham and Handsworth areas. As an ex-primary school teacher, I am aware that art and creativity is being pushed out of children's education. I am making it my mission to bring it back by running amazing classes, parties and events in this area! Please get in touch if there's anything I can help you with.

About Olivia


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. After becoming stressed out and frustrated in education, I decided I wanted to break the mould and do something different. I love working with children and wanted something that didn't treat children as a number on a spreadsheet and allowed them creative freedom to express themselves. While trawling the internet for creative jobs with children, I came across the Creation Station. It offered everything I wanted, with the support and brand awareness that takes years to build up. It sounded too good to be true! But I took the plunge and here I am!
  

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station.  I graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2015 and taught in Rotherham and Sheffield schools as a primary school teacher for 3 years before deciding it wasn't for me anymore. :(
 

What I love about running my own Creation Station. I love being able to do what I enjoy (arts and crafts and working with children) in a flexible way that suits me and allows me to put my creative flair into all that I do. What could be better than being able to do your hobby as a job!?


Something you probably don’t know about me. I was born in Yorkshire (Bradford), lived in Grimsby from being 10 months old, but ended up returning to Sheffield for university and I never left!

Things I love doing. In my spare time, I love to do all things Harry Potter! Read it, watch it, craft it, even cosplay it! (You do not want to now how much money i've spent on it!) I'm a huge reader and love a good TV series!

My favourite joke. What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you? Nacho cheese!

My favourite food. It's got to be Cadbury Dairy Milk...but mealwise, I love a good Mac 'n' Cheese!

The workshop was age appropriate and the lady was great with the kids. Our kid had lots of fun and the slime was one of the best he ever made.

excellent environment for baby’s and tots

This was my third (little explorers? 6-18m) Creation station experience and I’ve enjoyed each one greatly. The groups are small and the activities varied. There isn’t time for the babies to get bored or whiny because there’s always so much for them to do. Olivia is an exceptional group facilitator and has the calming persona of everyone’s most cherished primary school teacher. Tasks that would be stressful at home (baby prints etc) are so simple with her tips and tweaks and the atmosphere is never anything but friendly and fun. I’ve recommended these groups to my friends and followers, and can see us going back again and again over the years

Slime Fun!

I always struggle in the school holidays to entertain my 4 boys aging from 4 years to 10. The slime workshop was something that all of them could do together and enjoy. The facility's were excellent and 'the slime lady' was lovely and very helpful! Thank you for a lovely afternoon x

My 6 year old goes to a Create Club…

My 6 year old goes to a Create Club after school and absolutely loves it. They do a variety of interesting creative activities - making different things, but it has some science behind it.

My daughter’s 6th birthday party with Olivia from Creation Station was brilliant. The kids had so much fun and their creations were great. I would definitely recommend.
