The Web Design Adventure
Do you want to create a beautiful WordPress website on a budget and without the headache of having to figure it out yourself?
Then this course is for you!
Let me guess…
Deep down you know that your website (or lack thereof) is holding you back from taking the next steps in your business. It would be great to feel confident that you can easily make it yourself, but as a small business owner you’re already wearing a lot of different hats and you’re tired of fretting over tech problems feeling overwhelmed and defeated.
This course will teach you how to create a beautiful WordPress website that converts well and connects you with your ideal clients – without the headache and frustration of trying to work it out yourself.
Hi, my name is Yarrow.
I’ve been running my web design studio since 2015 and specialise in creating unique WordPress sites for small business owners. I understand that not everyone has the budget to hire me and I happen to love teaching, so I made this course as a budget friendly alternative. In it I am sharing my screen to show you how to plan and build your site step by step – no more wasting time watching Youtube videos or feeling alone and overwhelmed in the process.

Here is how it works:
When you sign up for the Web Design Adventure you’ll get instant access to the whole course. This means you’re free to go at your own pace – you can work through it over a weekend or take much more time if you need to. All you’ll need is a WordPress hosting account (I make some recommendations on this in the course) and optionally you can buy the Divi theme as well.
The course costs $150 and you can pay in three instalments of $50 if you like.
If you haven’t created a brand for your business yet (think of this as your visual language!) then it makes sense to take my Branding with Canva class too. You can sign up for both of them together for $180 and save $20 with the bundle over here.
This course is a great fit for you if:
- You know you need a better website, but you’re on a budget and don’t want to hire a web designer (yet)
- You want to stop wasting time and have everything you need to get started gathered in one place
- You enjoy learning by yourself, but you need some structure when it comes to tech & design
What happens when I sign up?
You get immediate access to all 21 videos and can get started right away. This course is self-paced, so you can take as much time as you like!
What is the format of this course? Are the videos captioned?
This course is video based and the videos are captioned with about 95% accuracy.
What software are you using?
This course covers how to work with WordPress and the Divi theme (this is an affiliate link). Divi is the theme I recommend and use for all my websites, but you can use another one if you like. There are some videos covering specific Divi features, but the course will be useful even if you decide to go with another theme.
What if I hate tech?
That’s okay, you’re not alone. In the course I am sharing my screen and showing you step by step what you can do to create your site. I have broken all aspects down into manageable tasks and you can take as much time as you like.
Will my website be unique?
Yes! I’ll show you both how you can work with templates and make them your own and how you can build pages from scratch. You’ll create something unique that reflects your ideas and values.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes, I offer full and partial price reductions to members of marginalised communities who can’t afford the full price due to financial hardship. You can apply here.
Do you offer refunds?
Due to the digital nature of the program I don't offer refunds. If you are unsure please reach out and ask me anything.
