Created to make a positive impact

The Creation Station was established in 2002 by mum-of-three and multi-award-winning entrepreneur Sarah Cressall. Sarah wanted to give children the opportunity to explore, discover and develop their own skills, ideas and confidence to give them a solid foundation for their life’s journey. Due to the increasing squeeze on creativity in education, and the growth of adult crafting, The Creation Station has seen a phenomenal increase in demand for classes, parties, events and adult crafts.

“I could have only dreamt of running my own business, but I mean – where do you start?

Investing in my own Creation Station franchise means investing into a whole network of support, that’s really important to me.

I can gain help, advice, and support anytime. I’m learning a lot. I feel confident and whilst not everything has gone to plan it’s good to have challenges because it motivates me to try even harder to be the very best I can. I smile every day!

I love being my own boss, I’ve time to sing in a choir and play saxophone in a band without worrying about getting everything done. Sometimes I even go out on a school night!”

Daily life of a franchise partner

We will work with you to create a GROW plan tailored to your needs and aspirations. This gives you total control of your working week.

Depending on your GROW plan, some mornings you may be involved in running hands-on art & craft classes for children and working in partnership with local community organisations. Afternoons you may be involved in running after-school clubs or managing your team to deliver activities.

You will need to spend some of your time marketing, networking and quoting for events and parties. As your business grows, you have the option to take on staff to scale your business. Or if you already have a team we will include your team in a tailored Creation Station Team Academy.

You will be joining our friendly and proactive team who are incredibly supportive so there is help at hand when you need it. 

If you’d like to run your own fulfilling, flexible and financially rewarding business that brings positive creative experiences into learning, leisure and life, then this could be the opportunity you have been looking for.
