Squarespace 101


Confidently create a beautiful, professional looking website without the expense of hiring a designer

Squarespace 101・Kerstin Martin Squarespace Studio

Are you ready for a new website but feel daunted by the prospect of doing it Alone?


With my clear and easy-to-follow tutorials you'll design a website you’re proud of!  As an experienced Squarespace Web Designer & Authorized Trainer I am here to help you navigate the technical, conceptual and visual aspects of creating a gorgeous website on a platform that is very intuitive and easy to use.

Building a brand new website is much like building a house. 

I will take you through the process of preparing your foundation, building the frame and roof, filling your house with beautiful things and getting it ready for launch into the world.

This is not a course where you are left to your own devices!

I am very active in our private Facebook group where I offer technical support and design feedback, and also share Squarespace news. My teaching style is supportive, engaged and relaxed.

Amy Kervin Testimonial for Squarespace 101・Kerstin Martin Squarespace Studio
Squarespace 101 was a game-changer for me! Kerstin is incredibly talented and made website design accessible to me, someone without any background in this area. My only regret is that I didn’t take her course sooner, it would have saved me so much time!
