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.

About Emma


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.

Twin 4yr olds and a 9yr old all LOVED IT! Lots of fun, excitement and new experience for them. They've played with slime before but making their own and getting to take it home was brilliant. Favourite day of the holidays they've all said.

Slime workshop was brilliant ....especially on a rainy morning.

My daughter had a wonderful time at your workshop today. Emma was fantastic with the children :) we will hopefully come to the slime class next week in Aylesbury....it’s worth the 40 minute drive.

Excellent experience

Excellent experience - my 3 year old grandson was so excited to show his parents his works of art. Highly recommended.
