I’ve had quite a few requests recently to run an online WooThemes Canvas Theme Masterclass. So on October 17th, 6pm-8pm (GMT), I will be running our first virtual WooThemes Canvas Masterclass. The cost for the Masterclass is $75 per person and will cover all you need to know so you can build a great looking website with the Canvas Theme from WooThemes.

You can book your place at the bottom of this post or if you have any questions about the Masterclass please get in touch.

  1. Hi! Do you still have space in your class? I live in Toronto (Canada) but will be in Myrtle Beach (US) the day of your class. I will have my office with me but am concerned about my ability to keep up with you and other students in this setting. How does interraction work?

    I have done 2 sites using Canvas — see also http://www.wesleymimico.org — and.would benefit from a slow tutorial of all the things you’ve listed. Just my learning style I guess! Let me know if you think I’d be a good candidate and I’ll make the logistics work.
