Hear what Creation Station Franchisee Emma has to say: 

Creation Station Business | Art and Crafts Franchise“I could of only have dreamt of running my own business, but I mean where do you start?! Investing in my own The Creation Station Business means investing into a whole network of support, that’s really important to me.

I can gain help, advice, and support anytime. I’m learning a lot. I’ve grown my business since 2008 and now run 20 afterschool clubs each week as well as provide activities for my community.  

I feel confident and whilst not everything has gone to plan it’s good to have challenges.

Overcoming these motivates me to try even harder to be the very best I can and there is so much support to help if you get a bit stuck. I love being my own boss. I smile every day! I’ve time to sing in a choir and play saxophone in a band. Sometimes I even go out on a school night!” Emma McCalla John Inspires imaginations in Harborne & Batley

Demand for creative activities continues to increase. 

If you have a positive outlook on life, want to benefit from your own hard work and  would love to make a difference to others, then The Creation Station would love to hear from you.
