In this workshop I will introduce you to the styling options of the Twenty-Ten default theme. This is a great starting point to get a feel for what you can do with your new site.
Twenty-Ten is ideal because it allows you to use Custom Menus, a Custom Header and a Custom Background. Not ever theme allows you to change all these options as you will soon discover. Typographically it looks great too so I recommend you stick with it for a while.
Enjoy Twenty-Ten responsibly 😉
