About The Creation Station
The multi award winning The Creation Station, is the first and most successful children's Arts and Crafts activity franchise in the UK.
Recently awarded The Best Franchisee Marketing Support award, the 'Best Interactive Business' 2011 in the Mumprenuer awards, and the national ‘Crème de la Crème’ Business award.
The Creation Station continues its mission to inspire children's imaginations. With over 60 franchises operating in the UK, the franchise gives people the opportunity to achieve a rewarding work/life balance that compliments a great family life.
Established in 2002 by Sarah Cressall, mum of three, winner of 'The Best Female Franchisor' 2012 and finalist in 'The Extraordinary Women' award 2011 and Business Woman of the year in 2009. Sarah ran the business for five years herself, enjoying the many benefits of working from home with pre-school children and even bringing her boys along to many of her classes and events.
Due to enquiries from other mums who wanted to run their own Creation Station, Sarah franchised the business in 2007, with the help of the British Franchise Association. The Creation Station brand has grown from strength to strength with the core values based on family values and shared creative experiences that inspire the imagination.
The number 1 choice for Mums
The majority of the franchise owners are Mums who love the flexibility of the work/life balance and running their own family friendly and financially rewarding fun franchise.
Over 48,000 children and families inspired already and the demand continues...
Children love doing arts and crafts and although many parents understand the well documented benefits of creative play, the lack of space, resources and ideas, as well as the mess and stress at home, means that parents value coming to The Creation Station. Here they can relax, share the 'Journey’s of Discovery and Exploration' with their little one, and walk away with treasured artworks memories.
There is a wealth of opportunities to inspire your community and this ensures parents and carers keep coming back, no matter what age their child is. Not only this, they will bring their friends too. The business provided you with a wide range of income streams all through the year, this includes:
- Weekly Art and Craft Classes (3 months to 11yrs) – Baby Discovery, Little Explorers and Family Fun
- Arty Parties - Original arts and crafts birthday party fun with free invites and party bags supplied and filled with treasured artworks
- Event Entertainment - Engaging family activities for a wide range of partners, including baby shows, corporate family days, county shows, festivals, playgroups - where families gather we can help to inspire them
“You never have to worry what activities you are going to do, because all the session plans have been tried, tested and pre-planned ready for you to use. It's the same with the parties and events - we've planned it and prepared it all for you. We will even deliver all the products you need, at wholesale prices, to your door. This gives you more time with your family when you want it.” Sarah Cressall Founder and Managing Director

Carly Miller, who inspires imaginations in Bracknell, stated:
"Having worked full-time previously, I never dreamt I could be running such a successful business and having so much time with my 14 month old daughter. I made a return on my investment within the first eight months and the business continues to grow from strength to strength. I was a bit nervous when I started, as I didn't really know anything about franchising, but all the support and help from head office and the other franchisees is really great."
Faye Williams, who inspires imaginations in Cardiff, stated: "I love being able to work around my family and enjoy the flexibility of running my own Creation Station."
