Ruth and Dawn are knowledgeable, and patient teachers.  I wanted to familiarize myself with WordPress and be able to make changes to my website.  I was never bored and they never let it get overwhelming.  This workshop is a great introduction to WordPress.  They continue to provide resources and support afterwards.  I am very pleased with the final site. ~ Joan Marsman

The 2-day WordPress workshop was the best value anywhere. Despite having zero experience, I learned to create and maintain my own site, without having to depend on an outside administrator. I’ve had rave reviews of my website since I launched it, and everyone says it’s clean, easy to navigate and looks great. Thanks Ruth and Dawn for helping me launch my business!

I recently attended Ruth & Dawn’s WordPress workshop. Even though I was completely new to WordPress, I understood all the information and concepts I needed to build the website I wanted. They both have great knowledge and experience in the topics they teach.

I definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to build their own website, as well as be able to manage and update their content.


Michelle Lochan, MarketStart | Business Planning


After being at the mercy of unresponsive web designers, I have finally gained control of my website with the help of LearnWP! With no prior knowledge, I was able to understand how to build a good framework with the functions I needed for my website marketing strategy. The instructors are hands-on and the personalized attention, even within the group setting, boosts your confidence in your ability to manage your site going forward.

Dawn and Ruth’s training in WordPress enabled me to take charge of my website. They were very helpful and the training exceeded my expectations. Now I feel in control of my online presence. I recommend LearnWP to everyone I know who has a webpage.

I recently built my new professional website with Ruth and Dawn (holding my hand the entire way) in one of their two-day workshops. I had already spent many hours with techie friends and family, trying to build a WordPress site. This was an eleventh hour attempt to do it myself so I could make frequent updates… It was the highlight learning experience of the year.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the LearnWP workshop with Ruth and Dawn at the helm. I was reluctant to register at first thinking that it might be too much ‘techno-speak’ for me and that I might not know enough to actively participate. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in, was made to feel immediately welcome and had no trouble following along. I came away from the workshop with the knowledge I needed to take my blog to where I wanted it to be and the confidence that I could do it on my own. I feel that the ongoing support I have received, not only in helping when a problem arose, but also in the personal support of my endeavours, has set me up for ultimate success. Thank you Ruth and Dawn!

I am so glad I decided to take this 2 day course. I kept telling myself that I could learn WordPress on my own, but I still found the vast amount of information around the WP platform overwhelming.

Ruth & Dawn were able to introduce it in a way that made sense without being too simple or too complicated… I would totally recommend this class to anyone interested in learning WordPress!

M. A. Nurse and Associates


Excellent workshop facilitated by two knowledgeable, friendly and patient instructors. Ruth and Dawn are expert problem solvers who give personalized attention to meet your specific needs. If you are looking for a workshop to build or re-do your website, this workshop intensive will give you the skills you need to succeed.

Dawn and Ruth are knowledgeable, approachable and supportive teachers. They were kind and helpful throughout. After the workshop, I continued to seek their support and it was given with no hesitation. I can’t believe my website is live and I have Dawn and Ruth to thank for this!

The HR Intern


As user friendly as WordPress is, it can still be complicated for a beginner. After taking the LearnWP workshop, however, I felt much more comfortable navigating WordPress and creating my blog. More than that, I learned tons of tricks for adding great features like galleries, my CV, and video clips. The attentive and personalized instruction made the whole experience very positive.

I’m very happy with my new and improved website! Ruth and Dawn made learning how to use WordPress easy. They’re wonderfully knowledgeable and the perfect teaching duo. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone thinking about a WordPress website.

Cindy Burgess


Ruth and Dawn are the dynamic duo of WordPress! They’re both incredibly patient, knowledgeable teachers and provide a fun, supportive atmosphere in which to learn. I’m thrilled with my new website, and proud to know I created it myself through LearnWP!

Excellent no-nonsense workshop! I learned enough in 2 days to layout my content, showcase my galleries, set up contact and blog pages and go live within a couple of weeks.

The technical support and theme setup are a very valuable bonus.

Parent Education Network


We’re absolutely thrilled with the results we have achieved from the LearnWP workshop. We’ve had a website for a really long time but changing content was so difficult. We also didn’t know much about SEO. Since we’ve taken the workshop, we’ve got an easy-to-manage website and we’re showing up at the top in Google for our key search terms. That’s what we call excellent results.

Twinkles the Clown


This was truly a great workshop, I highly recommend it. In only 2 days, I learned how to change up the look and feel of my site and how to add new content that is Google-friendly. It was a fun and friendly, supportive learning environment. I love my website and now I have the confidence and skills to work with it (actually it’s like playing). Thanks Ruth and Dawn!

Debra Tyler


This has been an amazing journey. Not only have Ruth and Dawn been wonderfully patient and inspiring teachers, but the entire process has been incredibly empowering. Learning to write clearly and succinctly for search engine optimization has allowed me to know myself more than ever before. By defining Local Farm for the web, I have become more focused on what I’d like it to become and thus a better manager. I’m tickled to be able to track seasonal occurrences on the farm via the blog and post slideshows. Thank you!

Nancy Simmons Smith


I knew nothing about websites going into the workshop – only that I wanted to have one of my own that I could maintain. Being basically scared of technical stuff and disinclined to understand it, I worried that the workshop would be a disaster for me. I needn’t have worried. Dawn and Ruth are VERY knowledgeable about WordPress, very attuned to the individual needs of participants and gave me the extra personalized support I needed to reach a finished product that I’m going to enjoy using. I recommend this program highly to other artists.

Ron Ellis


I am a new author.  I promised my editor that I would create a website for the book; I had zero experience – barely ever visited websites; I Googled “website designers”, looking, literally, for friendly faces; I found Ruth and Dawn. The workshop took me, a complete novice, to the point where it is possible for me to continue to build and administer my own website.

Aadila Munshi


Today my website went live! Wow! Thank you for hosting such an amazing and empowering workshop. It is astonishing to me that, in two days, I built a beautiful website and actually know how to maintain it with confidence. With your acute intuition, remarkable patience, swift problem-solving and superior expertise, I got EXACTLY the look and feel that I wanted for my website. It seemed like there was nothing that I could throw at you that you couldn’t tackle effortlessly! Ruth, your design style is flawless and sophisticated… and Dawn, you are an absolute genius with SEO. I couldn’t be more delighted with the whole experience. Your LearnWP workshop is the city’s best kept secret!

Worth every penny! Ruth’s customized theme and Dawn’s SEO advice made it possible for me to create my site as well as have the confidence to make changes and keep it up to-date

Sonia Jacyk-Bukata


As an artist and one that has an abhorrence of all things technical, I approached the Learn WordPress Workshop with trepidation. The workshop was organized and moved along smoothly with Ruth outlining the various steps in setting up a WordPress website and Dawn making sure that none of us got bogged down. The class was diverse, yet everyone’s concerns were addressed. After the workshop I was gently prodded and encouraged to persist in making my website go live. I am very grateful and happy with the final outcome and the support and assistance I received from both ladies. Bravo!

Holly Kerr


Learning WordPress with Dawn and Ruth was a great experience. I came in as a first-time blogger, nervous and a bit overwhelmed with what WordPress could do for me. I came out with a website I’m proud to tell everyone about!
