Hello from Rachael

Hi, I am Rachael and I run the Creation Station in Burton on Trent West and surrounding areas. I'm a parent of two boys and a girl 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. I also 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 and everything else going on in and around my area by dropping me an email and I'll be happy to help. 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.

About Rachael

Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 

Since having my 3 children I realised that I wanted more working flexibility and so being my own boss seemed like the obvious choice!  I have also hit the big 40 and knew it was now or never!

I love working with children and I have always fancied running my own business but never felt confident to make that leap.  Then I came across the Creation Station and it offered everything I wanted but with the support and brand awareness that takes years to build up.  Watch this space!

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
In 1996 I went to Liverpool John Moores University to study a BA in Physical Education and Dance (QTS) and have taught in two secondary schools in the last 18 years.

In 2013 I trained to teach Baby and Pre-school swimming with Derbyshire Puddleducks and have loved every minute of my time in the water teaching a very important life skill.

I have 3 children and a husband who keep me very busy!

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I am looking forward to planning exciting activities and finding new ways to inspire creativity. Where else could I plan my own week, meet wonderful children, adults and families, make fantastic creations and spend time with my own family? I love the endless possibilities it offers and am excited about the challenges ahead. I have so many things I want to do with the business and I know in time they will all be possible. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I went to dancing school from the age of 3 until I was 19 and I have tap danced on the television programmes 'Surprise Surprise' (whilst dressed as a clown), the 'National Lottery' and 'Live and Kicking' (Totally showing my age!)

I was a kids club holiday representative in Cyprus for two summer seasons.

Things I love doing. 
Besides anything creative and crafty I love sport especially playing netball and hockey.  I love Clubbercise and Zumba and Musical Theatre. My favourite musical is 'Les Miserables'

My favourite food.  
Anything but Brussel sprouts and Angel delight!

Excellent, we will be back!

Excellent! My 10 yr old & 8 yr old had great fun making slime! An activity that allowed them to get gooey and messy but without me having to do any of the cleaning up!

Fantastic fun

My 9 year old daughter attended a Slime Workshop in Burton. All very well organised, perfectly paced. Rachael was very welcoming, enthusiastic and friendly. The slime worked perfectly and the added extra idea of blowing bubbles in to it with a straw was fantastic. Great fun, we'll definitely be coming again in the future

Enjoyable session of slime making!

The kids really enjoyed the slime making session. The host was very friendly and engaged the kids. I only heard about the session through a friend, it needs to be advertised better as I’m sure there would be more interest as not many at our session.
