What's in it for me?

HTML & CSS for Artists will help you showcase your art by teaching you how to hand-code your own website.

Bring your laptop along and together we’ll build your very first web page in no time, with no reliance on third-party providers, such as Squarespace or Wix.

Everyone who attends this web starter workshop will receive a discount on our longer form workshops, such as Website in a Day,  Website on a Weekend and our three-day Web Building Masterclass.

What we'll cover

Together, we’ll cover the basics of HTML and CSS, the building blocks of the internet. We’ll remove the mystery and make it real and easy to understand.

We’ll talk all about HTML and create a web page. After that we’ll add style to it with CSS, explaining every step along the way.

We’ll finish up with a fantastic list of resources for you to continue with as well as an engaging and informative Q&A session.

At a glance:

  • The building blocks of the internet and how web pages work
  • Introduction to HTML and CSS
  • How to write code by hand
  • Learn how to build and design for all device types
  • Adding multimedia elements to our page
  • Introduction to SEO and accessibility techniques
  • Linking to other pages on the internet
  • Techniques to use at home when stuck on code

Anything else I should know?

Nope, nada, nothing and zilch!

This course is made for anyone who wants to learn something new, and is geared for those who have zero experience coding.

An understanding of how computers generally work (installing software as well as opening and saving files) is essential.

Note that this workshop is fast-paced, and we generally don’t take a break unless we absolutely have to.

Who should do this workshop?

This workshop is geared primarily at artists (musicians, visual artists etc) who want to showcase their work on their own website.

What should I bring?

Two of the most important things we need from our students is a positive attitude and a thirst for knowledge.  We can’t give these to you on the day – you must bring them with you.

As far as technical things: Bring a laptop (Mac, PC or Linux – it doesn’t matter!)

Make sure you have the following software installed:

Please also make sure you have admin rights on your computer – this means we can install things on the day and you’ll be able to save files to your hard drive.

If you’re using a computer from your employer, make sure you’ve got admin rights before you come along.
