Celebrating An Exciting Opportunity

As a Community Development Officer, trained Beauty Therapist and Hairdresser, Tracy absolutely loves talking to people and providing excellent customer care.  When the opportunity arose for her to join the glittery Creation Station franchise family she took the leap and hasn't look back!

The Creation Station | TracyTracy now runs successful, award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Yarm

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

Why did you want to run your own business?

"I wanted to have more control over my career.  I feel that I have all the skills and qualities to be able to deliver a fantastic experience for my customers!"

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"It gave me an opportunity to be my own boss - but not have to fumble on my own in the dark.  The franchise is a perfect balance of having all the tools and support to hand, but the flexibiliity to still make it personal to me"

Imagination and creativity go hand in hand.  So many wonderful things come from creativity - from delicious food, art displays, fashion, dance - all  of which are needed in life to bring joy and happiness."

Describe your highlights so far...

"I absolutely loved running a summer of fun for 6 weeks, helping families with a range of fun, creative, educational activities.  People have told me how grateful they are to have found something fun to do with their children/grandchildren and that my adult crafting classes are also something that they really enjoy"

How do you feel about the future?

"Raring to go! Since taking over the glittery reins of The Creation Station Yarm I have been super busy with summer classes, events and parties.  My after-school clubs are having fantastic space-themed 'Out Of This World' fun this term, and my adult crafting workshops are filling up really quickly"
