In this slow-paced, two-day workshop, you will create a portfolio-based website that you can easily customize and update. Without any prior experience in website design, you will be able to personalize your own mobile-friendly site, connect it to social media, exhibit a gallery of your work, maintain a blog, and manage a mailing list of your audience. You will also secure your own website name (tomspottery.com) and will put your site live on the internet by the end of the workshop.

This is a hands-on workshop where you create your own website, so please bring your own laptop (a physical keyboard & mouse is highly recommended).
