15 mumpreneurs have changed careers to become Creation Station franchisees.

The children’s arts and crafts franchise is expanding its territorial reach following the “growing demand for more creativity in childhood”.

Launched in 2002 by Sarah Cressall, the franchise offers “a comprehensive marketing mix of all year round income streams including preschool and family fun classes, after school clubs, retail, party and event entertainment.”

The new franchisees are:

  • Liz Edwards in Sleaford
  • Sharon Keirle in Cranbrook and Exminster
  • Julia Martin in Bicester
  • Joanna Cameron in Lancaster
  • Christina Turnbull in Gateshead
  • Catherine Scott in Chester
  • Louisa Theyers in Spondon
  • Rachel McLauchlin in South Shields
  • Tina Harris in Greasby
  • Paula Martin-King in Sunderland West
  • Farah Wahed in North Finchley
  • Victoria Rundle in Malborough
  • Cheryl O’Connor in Ormskirk
  • Kay Fletcher in Belper
  • Laurie Keating Shirley in West Midlands

The brand currently operates 104 franchise territories across the UK.

Farah Wahed, franchisee of the North Finchley branch, said:

“I’d attended the classes with my own children and so I had firsthand experience of the benefits of the Creation Station approach on nurturing my children’s imagination and potential.

“I reached a point in my career where I wanted to have more control over my working week so I could prioritise time with my children and at the same time build a business was that mine. The Creation Station has so much scope I know I have the potential and support to build my business at a rate that suits me and my family.”
