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.
