WordPress is one of the world’s most popular tools for creating websites and blogs, responsible for over 60 million sites worldwide. Join Claire Dodd from MadLab and GirlGeek Up North as she guides you through this popular and easy to use platform.

Over this two day, hands-on workshop, you will cover the basics of building a website, from layout and design to content management and functionality. Claire will work with you to create your own site, design a layout, and upload and manage content - as well as teaching you about vital processes, including navigating WordPress settings and backing up your site.

Learn in a relaxed environment with a group of like-minded women, and leave with your own website, built from scratch.

You will need to bring your own laptop.
