Hello from Helen

Hello, I'm Helen and I run the Creation Station franchise for Sutton Coldfield. I'm mum to Sophia 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 our new creative updates.

About Helen



Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
Our Sophia arrived in 2014 and everything changed! I heard about The Creation Station through a friend and as soon as I'd done a bit of research I was sold. I was finding it difficult to get the balance between work and family right when I went back to work after my daughter was born, so I was desperate to find a job that would allow me to do so. Not only have I managed to get the balance right but I absolutely love what I do. Not many people can say that about work and I feel so lucky to be able to.   It's the best way to do everything I loved about teaching, whilst meeting amazing children and families.    

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I was a Primary School Teacher of 13 years. I have a love of the Early Years and spent many of my teaching years as an EYFS Manager and Reception Class Teacher.  

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I love the flexibility that The Creation Station gives me! I get to run a business that I love, spend time with amazing children and their families, without missing out on my all important family time. It allows me to watch babies and children grow in so many ways and I get to make new friends too! 

Something you probably don’t know about me.
My brothers and sister nicknamed me Heberlicious!  This has been shortened over the years to Hebs and I am now lovingly known to my nieces and nephews as Aunty Hebs! 

Things I love doing. 
I love reading, sitting on a beach, running, my job and spending time with family and friends. I also love peeling PVA glue from my hands! 

My favourite joke.  
Why did the Lobster blush? Because the sea weed! Gets me every time!  

My favourite food.  
This is such a difficult one for me. I LOVE all food! There isn't much that I don't like to eat and my favourite food depends on the day, but give me a spicy seafood pasta dish anytime.

Loved it!

Loved the baby discovery class today. The leader was lovely, very welcoming and took the time to speak to everyone individually. The activities were simple but enjoyable definaltly sometime you could recreate at home and all the babies looked to be having a great time. I would defiantly recommend this class to everyone, We loved it!

A fun arts and crafts session for kids.

A fun arts and crafts session for kids. We attended the 'Big Stomp' dinosaur session which my 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed. Although aimed at younger children, my son was very comfortable and was treated as the age he is. Highly recommended.

Fantastic time

Fantastic time but a lot of stimulation going on at once (music, lights etc) in a smallish environment which I think my little one found a bit overwhelming x
