The Creation Station’s hands-on art and craft exploration sessions give even very young children the chance to safely experiment with a wide range of materials, tools and ideas. 

From educational benefits to wellbeing, our fun-based arts and craft activities are guaranteed to unleash the wonder within – for all ages - with an added extra sparkle.  

As we age there are many physical, social and emotional benefits of being involved in creative activities. Research shows the acts of creative expression and social interaction can improve health, both mentally and physically in our ageing community. 

For the older population, we can also run crafty sessions in care homes or community settings. We incorporate a range of art, music, writing and drama. The focus is tailored to the social, mental and physical benefits to suit the needs of each person.
