This workshop is designed to teach you how to create your own theme on a self-hosted WordPress website. Starting with an overview of how themes work and the anatomy of a typical theme, and moving on to an introduction to "The Loop", templates, functions and widgets.

WordPress has become one of the most popular CMS and blogging platforms available on the web. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power their websites including some of the biggest brands in the world like Playstation, The New York Times, CNN, Sony Music, Metro and more!

So whether you are a website designer or developer, this workshop will give you the technical knowledge needed to take HTML templates and turn them into a fully functioning WordPress theme.

This workshop is aimed at people who already have a basic knowledge of WordPress. It is expected that you will have some knowledge of HTML, CSS and be able to FTP files already, some programming knowledge is preferable but not essential.

All you need to bring with you is yourself and a laptop. You will be given access to a fresh install of WordPress using the twentyfourteen theme and teas, coffees, lunch will be provided for you. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance.
