The multi-award winning Creation Station is the market leader for creative art and craft activities for children and adults In the UK.

The Creation Station franchise ranks as the 15th TOP franchise in the UK with over a million children and adults inspired to date.

The Creation Station has been inspiring imaginations since 2002 through a network of over 100 franchise owners who provide a portfolio of creative arts and craft classes, parties, school workshops and clubs and events in an exclusive area. We have been in main stream press and have appeared on BBC, ITV, Channel 4, SKY, CBeebies and MTV.

The Creation Station has identified a number of international markets where the brand and business model could achieve exceptional results. To maximise this potential, we need to identify ambitious business partners with the resources and enthusiasm to build valuable franchise networks of high performing Creation Station franchisees across their territories.

How it works

The Creation Station is a home-based business franchise model that is committed to inspiring imagination and nurturing potential through a range of art and craft experiences and products.

The franchise also includes a comprehensive range of activities designed to inspire all ages, including parents with new-borns, preschool and school aged children, families, adults and the elderly.

Venues are either hired or negotiated with local businesses and the franchise owner uses their own vehicle to transfer the tool kit and materials required to set up, deliver and clear up a session.

In the shared classes the parent or carer is responsible for the child, and in the clubs the franchise owner employs a member of staff to assist in providing creative tuition for the children. The adult events take place in cafés, pubs, gardens centres and senior citizens classes take place in care homes. Birthday party and event entertainment take place in a range of different locations.
