The Creation Station is launching their autumn programme of award-winning arts and crafts classes for pre-school children, and adult craft nights, in the Ashby, Hilton, Melbourne and Swadlincote areas.
For pre-schoolers, the hands-on, exploratory programmes are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum EYFS. Each class is designed to support the individual child’s journey of discovery, through a wide range of different materials and tools, every week.
“Loved it, my son was in his element and Amy was such a delight to be around – made everything so clear and has the most friendliest nature. I will be going be every Tuesday until my son is too old to go. Loved it! Highly recommend. And the mums were so nice too as I was a little nervous starting, my nerves went as soon as I saw Amy, I was made so welcome,” stated Maria, mum to 13 month old Oscar.
Classes are delivered by Amy Jordan and her team of DBS checked, first-aid trained, and safeguarding-trained Creation Station staff. The weekly classes include:
The autumn term theme is ‘Scrunchy, Crunchy, Bumpy Hands On Discovery’. Classes include activities exploring scrunchy and crunchy, squishy and squashy, and slippery and slimy textures. Activities include creating see-through moveable pictures, mobiles, puppets, and clay creations.
“I’m delighted that since launching in the area this summer, we’ve already helped to inspire over 100 children (and adults!) with our creative classes. I can’t wait to launch our autumn term and help more babies, toddlers and parents discover the joy of creativity,” said Amy, the Ashby, Hilton and Melbourne franchise owner. “I am also really excited to launch our monthly adult craft evenings, Creative Crafters, where you can come along to have a go at a new craft activity in a relaxed, social environment as well as enjoy a glass of gin/prosecco!”
