Do you want to build a website, but don’t know how to start? Has your favorite podcast been advertising Squarespace for years, but you still don’t know where to begin? In this 3-hour workshop, you will start building your own Squarespace website and learn how to use customize and create with the Squarespace Content Management System. We’ll go over (1) the pros and cons of Squarespace; (2) how to register your domain and choose a template, (3) understanding and adding pages, (4) adding words, photos, video, sales items, contact forms and more to your website, and (5) steps to making your website live. This class is perfect for someone who has never set up a Squarespace / Wix / Weebly website before.

If possible, please come to class with a wifi-enabled Laptop and have digital copies of several photos that you might want to include on your website as photos or as background images.
