About this workshop
Squarespace is a powerful website platform designed for people looking to build beautiful websites without having to code. While relatively simple and intuitive, the platform contains various nuances and features that take time to master. By getting a deeper understanding of Squarespace, users can spend more time on design and content, and less time on building and tweaking. This class will teach students the basics of the platform including selecting templates, editing designs, managing content, and implementing advanced features like e-commerce.
