ON SATURDAY (Feb 27) The Creation Station Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire had a Mother’s Day Arty Saturday, where families came along to the Village Hall in Llanddewi Velfrey to get creative and make special gifts for their loved ones for Mother’s day.
Babies and children personalised and decorated a variety of craft items, making them into special and wonderful gifts for mums and grandmas.
Footprint butterflies on canvases, fingerprinting heart designs, hand decorated jewellery boxes and photo frames, cards, keyrings and bag charms were just some of the wonderful creations made. It was a lovely morning getting creative and having fun.
The Creation Station Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire is a new business to this area. Only launched in December 2015 Sarah Jones a partner to Gareth and mum to three children.
Lewis aged 16, Max aged 14 and Ava aged 3 were awarded a Creation Station Franchise back in November.
Having worked with children all her working life as a primary school teacher, Sarah has a passion for helping to inspire children’s imaginations and experiences through creativity. Creation Station isn’t simply about learning how to paint, model or collage. It’s about “having a go” and being inspired about something quite simple and encouraging each person to develop their own ideas.
She said: “We firmly believe that our future is in the hands of our children and that we need to give them the tools, skills and passion to discover and embrace all the wonders of the world. In the right environment where children are free to explore, discover and try out their own ideas, they engage in their own way and flourish.
“We know it can be tricky to provide these experiences at home – so that’s why we’re here!
“We run weekly workshops for babies, toddlers and preschool children, family fun workshops on weekends and in the holidays, birthday parties and events in the local area.”

Sarah said she feels privileged to be able to release the magic of childhood discovery and creative play and the many benefits they bring.
She finished, saying: “Let’s help our children’s imaginations and set them off on a journey of discovery.”
