Workshop – Build your own website using Squarespace

Please note that the date/time of this event has been changed to September 1st, 08h30 – 13h00.

Do you need a website but lack the financial resources to outsource this or the know-how to do it yourself? Squarespace is one of the simplest and most inexpensive platforms you can use to create a beautiful website.

Whether you are an entrepreneur, a startup, running a small non-profit or a small business owner, this hands-on masterclass will teach you how to build your own website from scratch

Over the course of the class, you will learn how to set up and manage a website and make it search-engine friendly. You will also receive input on how to make your site look stylish and professional, as well as expert advice on how to write your content in a more web/audience friendly manner.

This class is entry level for people with no previous experience of setting up websites.

A document brief to assist you with this will be sent out upon registration.
  • You’re also encouraged to bring along your laptop and include some text and images to use when building web pages during the class.
