Ruby and Blu Leyland

Ruby and Blu in Leyland is a children’s art studio based in Farrington

Ruby and Blu have a Facebook page and their slogan is “Come and Hang out with the Crafty Kids!”


Go Create! is a wonderful arts and crafts studio based on the A59 between Preston and Southport. We get lots of people travelling from all over Lancashire including Leyland, Chorley, Preston, Southport and Farrington.

Perhaps you have visited Ruby and Blu and wanted to try something similar? Well at Go Create!{Facebook page} we are proud and confident to say that we were the first to offer craft drawers that allowed children the freedom to explore and use the materials freely.
We were also the first to offer truly unique baby messy play sessions. All of the materials we use in baby messy play are fully edible unlike some other messy play sessions. We theme the sessions weekly and often have special baby messy play events.

Did you know that Go Create! do birthday parties. We have held 100’s of fabulous children’s parties for all ages from 1 year old to 12 years old. We have amazing science themed parties, playdoh parties and of course wonderful craft parties. Parties start from just £10.50 and can include crafts, food, invitations, party games, mini disco and party bags.

At Go Create! we have 66 brightly coloured craft drawers (that’s double those at Ruby & Blu) which are filled with almost every craft material imaginable. We encourage children to express themselves through art, have fun and enjoy themselves.  We have lots of examples of things children can make or copy or they can just let their imaginations run wild.
For us, freedom of expression is key and we realise that kids+art+glitter+glue=mess and that’s perfectly fine because we do all the cleaning us afterwards.

If you are looking for a fun place to take toddlers and pre-schoolers during the week while the kids are at school then Go Create! is certainly an option. Throughout the week (Tuesday-Friday) from 09.30-3pm they offer paint and play sessions for just £4.00. This allows children from toddlers – preschoolers the opportunity to get messy with paint and when they are ready they can play in our new play area with tents, tunnels, balls, teddy’s, tea sets, cars, tractors as well as lots of dry sensory materials suitable for that age range. If you would like to do crafts (for example to make a card or something else) then this can be added for just £1.

Go Create! also serve hot and cold food throughout the day. On the menu we have sandwiches, toasties, hot dogs and beans/ spaghetti on toast. We also do lattes, cappuccinos, mocha’s, hot chocolates and regular teas and coffees.
