About Vicky


Why I decided to run my own Creation Station. 
As a child all I wanted to be when I grew up was a 'maker', doing arts & crafts and making things...instead after graduating I entered the corporate world working for a magic circle law firm.    I'm now a mummy to a little girl and boy, with just 20months between them this has been both rewarding and sometimes very testing.  After returning to work second time round I felt I needed a new challenge, a challenge that would push me and excite me as well something that would realistically work better for my family and allow greater flexibility.  The opportunity came up to run The Creation Station in West Berkshire and it ticked so many boxes - it gave me a job doing my hobby, allowing me more time at home (in theory to keep on top of the chores) and the ability to work while bringing my children up and along to sessions.   

What I did before I ran my own Creation Station. 
I worked for a Housing Association, managing the legal property records and ensure they were accessible and in fit shape.  The latter then allowed me to manage the process of mortgaging against the properties (using them as security) to raise further revenue for future development. 

What I love about running my own Creation Station.  
I absolutely love running the sessions, coming up with new ideas of what I can introduce to the children (and adults) and then allowing them to explore and see where they can take it, what they can create!  Each week amazes me!    On a practical side I can be more flexible for my family, work when my children sleep (I say this loosely as my eldest is a devil for sleeping) and it is something I can get them involved with allow give them an avenue for letting out the inner mess monsters that they are - its actually surprisingly easier to clean up after them and 15 other children at a venue than them alone at home! 

Something you probably don’t know about me. I started collecting erasers when I was 7...I now have over 3000 stashed away in the loft, memorabilia from day trips, gifts, ones I liked the look of.  The truly geeky part is I can probably tell you for most when and where I got them and the story behind it!  

Things I love doing. 
Talking...I am a chatterbox.  Nothing I love more than seeing friends and having a good chinwag!  Making things, I've been making decorations for friend's weddings and my own and love it!  Spending time with my family, I mumble like a lot of mums that I barely have any alone time, but I love hanging out with them and exploring the world. 

My favourite joke.  
Oh, I'm really rubbish a jokes...I'm one of those that cracks up at the really unfunny stuff! 

My favourite food.  
Smoked salmon!

Creation station west Berkshire

This was the first time I have been to a creation station session and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cafe it was held in was a little small for buggys but the owner was very accommodating and we all had a lovely slice of cake and a hot drink. The materials we were given to work with were over and above what I thought we would get and I have created some lovely Christmas keepsakes with my daughter. Vicky and her helper were great at sharing ideas, tips and keeping babies occupied leaving me to finish my creations. Looking forward to the next session!

We went to the ‘Slime’ class today and my boys had a lovely morning. My youngest was too young to be interested in getting involved, but Vicki kindly provided some Playdoh and accessories for him and a few other youngsters to play with and they seemed captivated. My eldest loved making his slime and adding colour, glitter and beads etc to it. They started by decorating a label to put on the slime pot once finished and once they had completed the slime, Vicki provided another fun ’Halloween’ activity for each child. Once completed the children were all welcome to play in the Playbarn (Cobbs Farm) as part of the package. Great morning and well organised. We will be back.

Fun and messy!

We always have a lot of fun. There is loads of great craft supplies, brilliant ideas, Vicky is really helpful and there is lots of toys if your child gets fed up of messy crafting. We always have something really special to take away with us either as a keepsake or gift. The biscuits are always appreciated too!
