Hello from Laurie

Hello, I'm Laurie and I run the Creation Station franchise for Solihull and the surrounding areas. I'm a parent of two 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 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 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 Laurie


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
I decided to run my own Creation Station because it combines the positive things about being a teacher, including inspiring children, learning new things myself and of course spending time with children, along with some of my hobbies, which are crafting and trying out new techniques. I also really wanted to be my own boss and choose my working hours to fit in around my family. 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I was a Primary School Teacher. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
Choosing my own hours, working with children, meeting lots of lovely moms. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I can play the cello. 

Things I love doing. 
Sewing, knitting, finding new types of crafts to try out, reading, camping and spending time in the countryside with my family. 

My favourite joke.  
What do you call a mushroom who takes you out for a good time?  A funghi to be with!! 

My favourite food.  
Anything I don't have to cook myself!

Creation Station Solihull... highly recommended

I've been taking my daughter to Laurie's creation station sessions in Solihull for nearly 3 years. My daughter loves them! I've just done my first creative crafters session for adults. It was Christmas themed. I got to try out crafts I haven't done before and it was great fun. Highly recommend
