The Creation Station in support of St Helena offers a wide range of award-winning art and craft classes and groups to local people in Colchester and surrounding areas. All of the profits from this partnership will be reinvested back into St Helena to provide its vital services to local people facing the end of life and bereavement.
Groups we run include arty birthday parties, after schools create clubs, newborn keepsake classes, preschool baby and toddler classes, family fun and lots more. We also have fantastic adult craft classes perfect for hen parties, team building events or just a fun afternoon or evening of crafting with fellow creators.
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.

As well as kids parties, The Creation Station in support of St Helena also offers after school and holiday camp Create Clubs.
