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.

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.

We had a lovely time at the creation station, we were able to make some lovely pieces with support, when required. Although the session was timetabled to last 90 minutes, we didn’t feel rushed and were able to stay on to complete our pieces of art.

Children loved it - perhaps a little costly for an hour

Children loved it. The lady leading the workshop was fabulous, so friendly and well organised. The set up was great and a good variety of resources were included. The hour worked well timing wise, with time split between decorating their pot, making the slime, getting it play ready, adding bits and bobs to it and then a little time to play with it at the end. Having said that, I would return again if the price was £5 or maybe £6 max, I felt £7.50 (so £15 for my 2 children) was a little steep. I also think the question of who will collect the children on the online booking form is misleading. I wasn’t sure whether I’d be leaving them there and collecting after an hour but there was a need to stay. I presumed this assumed drop off may be why it was £7.50 when I booked, because if dropping and collecting, there would be a need for more staff. Despite that, my 2 children (aged 4 and 8) absolutely loved the workshop, have played with their slime all afternoon and have asked to go again! A nice school holiday treat. Slime parties would go down a treat. My daughter has asked and I will enquire nearer to her birthday in December!

We were made very welcome and there was plenty of variety of activities for my two and a half year old granddaughter to do. We came home with lots of ‘creations’! Would highly recommend.
