About Creation Station

Creation StationCompany Overview

The multi-award-winning Creation Station is passionate about inspiring imaginations and nurturing potential through fun and educational art and craft experiences. Established in 2002, we have been privileged to help inspire over 250,000 children and families through our fun and educational classes, parties and events.

Our team of 104 franchisees share our core values, working to inspire imaginations and nurture each child’s potential.

Franchise Overview

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.

We have a network of 104 franchisees across the UK and in Ireland who are achieving the level of flexibility and success that they want.
