WordPress Web Design Workshop
Live, Online, Two-Day Workshop
Saturday, 9/23 & 9/30 from 10:00am – 2:00pm CST
In our live WordPress workshop, you will learn how to create an attractive and user-friendly website using WordPress.org and the GeneratePress theme. We will do a deep dive into theme current best practices, customization, UX/UI design, plugins, contact forms, styling with CSS, performance and SEO optimization. The workshop includes the tools and instruction you need to build a class website that you can utilize for your own personal or business use.
You will need a reliable internet connection, and a computer with the Zoom app and Chrome browser installed to participate in workshops. We ask that you have a good working knowledge of Google drive, Zoom, messaging apps, and basic HTML. Most importantly, have the availability and time needed to fully dedicate and immerse yourself in the workshop. This is an investment in yourself!
*Note: We will be working in WordPress during class. If you’d like to follow along, you will need to join Zoom from a desktop computer, not a cell phone. If you’d rather watch the instruction demo and work on your website later, the recording will be available to you.
Q: What will I learn in your workshop?
Our workshop is the best way to get started learning WordPress web design as you will be introduced to the fundamentals and more advanced features of building websites in WordPress.org & GeneratePress in a live, hands-on workshop. During class, we will help you build the framework of the class website to give you a great head-start, and then you will finish your website later with the help of the class recording and instruction manual. You will also be added to our community Discord server where you can lean on your fellow classmates for support!
We will host your class website for three months. After three months, you are welcome to transfer it to your own hosting provider. And if you send us a link to your finished website, we will present you with a certificate of completion!
Q: Do I need to know how to code?
The great thing about WordPress is that you do not need to know how to code in order to customize a theme. Having basic HTML and CSS knowledge will be helpful as we’ll be teaching you a few customization tricks, but not necessary. If you consider yourself a tech-savvy person, you’ll do great. If you’re concerned about the course tech requirements, contact us and we’d be happy to discuss!
