What’s it about?

If you’ve been wondering whether to take the plunge with a website of your own, this hour-long course will help you get there. In this introductory session we’ll cover the basics of WordPress, a brilliant platform both for beginners looking for a simple way to start, and those who want to end up with a more advanced website. Perhaps you’re looking for an online portfolio, or a website for a small business, stand-alone project, organisation or even for a client. If you’re not sure where to start with WordPress or you got stuck along the way, this is the course for you.
In an hour, we will touch on low-cost options for hosting, themes, plugins and customisation, adding a few tips on essential design elements for your freelance or service website. A PDF toolkit will be shared on the day with more information on the topics covered.
For information, the WordPress theme we’ll use for demonstration on the day is called Astra ( – a very popular free and premium WordPress theme.

Who’s it for?
Creatives new to WordPress or who would like a refresher on the basics.

What equipment will I need?
A laptop or desktop computer with reliable internet connection and access to Zoom. No access to a WordPress website is required.
