Hello from Emma

Hello, I'm Emma Winterbourne and I run the Creation Station franchise for Thame in Oxfordshire and surrouding 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, 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. If you have an event, group booking or a particular request please send me an email and I will respond within 2 working days.

Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
Shortly after having my second gorgeous girlie I realised I just couldn't face going back to my stressful and demanding career. I wanted more control over my time and to spend as much time as possible with my little ones. The childcare costs would have been so high it simply wasn't worth the sacrifice of family time. I wanted to do something different whilst still utilising the business skills I had acquired in my career. Plus I guess I have always been fighting the urge to teach (no way I can be the same as my Mum), so working with children in this way was really appealing. Since beginning my own Creation Station business I have re-discovered my inner child and unlocked my creativity. Each day is exhilarating and rewarding - I just love what I do! There are so many possibilities and opportunities with this business. The future is exciting and I can't wait to grow and reach more children than ever! 

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
Retail Manger for a large nationwide company. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station. 
Getting really silly with the kids! They treat me like a child rather than a grown up and tell me all sorts of things. I love to watch them develop and see them rush to me to show off their wonderful art. 

Something you probably don’t know about me. 
I am a huge HUGE Harry Potter fan! 

Things I love doing. 
Crafting (obviously), books and singing loudly but badly. 

My favourite joke.  
Why are pirates called pirates?  Because the arrrrr! 

My favourite food.  
Cheese.

Very well run course

The course was absolutely brilliant and efficiently run. My daughter really loved the amount of different mediums she was able to create with and the fact the some of her creations are able to continue growing at home!! Looking forward to the summer course!

What a delightful time we have had

What a delightful time we have had! Everything was made easy from start to finish. Simple and straightforward booking, confirmation e-mail, followed by another e-mail with directions plus explaining all Covid safe precautions and rules. I had to contact Emma twice, and did so via The Creation Station Messenger in their Facebook page, both times she came back to me very quickly, managing my query and solving my problem. On arrival all was exactly as previously explained on the e-mail, the duo who received us could not have been more welcoming. The activities were ready and set up. I felt very safe with the distance of the tables, use of masks and alcohol gel. The external activity on the field was a great thing to have. We had craft time, fresh air and sunshine! Honestly I could not fault them at all. Very approachable, very welcoming, great attention to detail! We had a great time!
