Sofia Woods: A blank Canvas, WooThemes Canvas as a Theme Framework

When it comes to development of WordPress sites, we’ve all got our own swag of theme development tools – and now here’s another. Developed by Woothemes, the Canvas theme, which can be used as a theme framework, helps to rapidly speed up your theme development time.

Canvas is child theme friendly, has advanced functionally to help you hook into WordPress the right way and helps you make beautifully designed sites. Oh and it’s responsive and WooCommerce compatible too. Sofia will take you through making a child theme for Canvas, some of the key features of the framework and hopefully show you some useful techniques to help you speed up your WordPress theme development.
