Canva is a great free software tool for creating graphics, all pre-sized for your social media images, profiles and backgrounds, blog headers, posters, marketing material, even infographics and e-booklets. Join us for a three hour interactive workshop to make the most of Canva and learn:

  • Why images are important for digital marketing
  • How to get started with backgrounds and text
  • How to download, print and publish
  • Uploading images and where to find free images
  • Using custom dimensions
  • Templates

This is a hands-on workshop and you will get the most out of this workshop if you bring a laptop or tablet so you can leave with all the tools and techniques you need to get started on Canva. The Canva phone app has some different/limited features. You will be get access to a detailed handout following the course.

This event will be facilitated by Kim Gilmour, ConnectConsultancy.
