Hello from Paula

Hello, I'm Paula and I run the Creation Station franchise for Sunderland. I'm a parent of a daughter so I know first-hand what it's like to find fun classes and activities that spark her natural curiosity and develop her growing mind. 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 pre-school baby and toddler classes, arty birthday party entertainment, after school clubs, family fun classes and lots of other events! I also run some fantastic adult craft classes to give you a bit of time away from the kids. You can find out more about all of my children's art and craft classes, rainy day activities and everything else going on, in and around Sunderland by clicking on the 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 my 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 Paula

Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
It was 2 years from initially making contact before I decided to join the Creation Station team!  Although I loved my full-time job and the people I worked with, I desperately needed a work/life balance that enabled me to spend quality time with my family, whilst providing me with the opportunity to develop in my career.   

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
Previously I worked in education for over 20 years; initially in the private sector teaching adults with autism, then in the public sector funding education. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love meeting children (and their families) and providing an opportunity for them to develop as individuals.  

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I own the original manuscript of one of my favourite childhood books! 

My favourite food.

Such a lovely morning at creation station - very relaxed, Paula is wonderful and very enthusiastic which is lovely. Excellent for little ones to have free reign to explore their creativity and a bonus to take their art works home . I would highly recommend.
