New Creation Station classes and parties in Thame & West Aylesbury!

The Creation Station | Emma WinterbourneEmma now runs award-winning, fun, creative and educational art and craft classes, intergenerational workshops, care home activities, kids birthday party entertainment and events in the Thame and Aylesbury West area near Oxfordshire.

We asked Emma to share why she loved providing creative activities in her community - this is what Emma said...

Why did you want to run your own business?

"My career in retail was not sustainable with my idea of family life.  I had always considered teaching as an option as I really enjoy working with children.  It's wonderful to now have control of my work life - it has also enabled me to become more of part of my community than I could ever have imagined possible and this is really rewarding."

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"My management career gave me quite a diverse range of skills.  Investing in a tried and tested business model seemed much less scary and I was so very glad of the expert guidance and the wide range of materials and support that is provided by the whole Creation Station support system.  With this in place I can concentrate on delivering excellent services, growing my business and making a positive difference."

Describe your highlights so far...

"My intergenerational sessions are fairly unique to my area - I am often approached to help develop and run these workshops.  I really love being able to make people, whatever their age, feel welcome and valued."
