You’re an absolute beginner Bricks users—you don’t have to have ever used Bricks before.
A step-by step process for quickly creating Bricks websites with an efficient best-practice workflow.
Hi, I'm Dave Foy.
Are you tired of slow page load speeds, buggy updates, and the lack of true global styling while building WordPress websites?
Or sick of constantly dithering and procrastinating about which page builder you’re going to use from now on?
You’re not alone. Like many WordPress non-coders, you’ve probably at least dabbled in page builders like Elementor, and I’m sure you’ve tried a multitude of Gutenberg-based block builder plugins and been… well… left feeling a bit disappointed.
But I’m here to tell you, there’s a better way to build WordPress sites: and that’s with Bricks builder.
Imagine a super-fast, reliable, and feature-rich page builder that makes creating dynamic websites a breeze while being easy to maintain and update.
That’s Bricks builder for you!
But wait. I’m a non-coder. Isn’t Bricks aimed more at developers?
The Struggle of Learning Bricks
You might have already tried to learn Bricks through random YouTube videos here and there?
There’s some good stuff. But I agree, a lot of the free training out there right now feels like it’s made by developers, for developers.
And as a result, you may have ended up feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, thinking Bricks is way beyond your capabilities. But let me tell you, it really doesn’t have to be that way.
Build With Bricks is an online course for ambitious non-coders like you, who are ready to learn how to build rock-solid WordPress websites quickly and more profitably than ever before.
I’m Dave Foy, and since 2017, I’ve helped thousands of non-coders like you build better, more profitable WordPress sites.
I truly believe that Bricks builder is perfect for non-techies who want a user-friendly page builder without sacrificing power or flexibility.
That’s why I created Build With Bricks—a simple, step-by-step guide that speaks your language. This foolproof course is designed for non-coders who want to transition to a superior page builder without getting lost in technical jargon.
Who is Build With Bricks for?
This course is perfect for you if...
This course is NOT for you if you’re already a confident Bricks user. If you’re intermediate or advanced, there’s nothing of value for you here. 🙂
"Now, I confidently build websites from scratch using Bricks builder"
“Before enrolling in Build With Bricks, I felt intimidated by Bricks Builder, especially coming from an Elementor background. Most of the tutorials I found seemed to cater to developers, leaving a non-developer like me lost.
However, this course completely turned things around for me.
Under Dave’s patient guidance, with his step-by-step approach tailored to non-English speakers, I was able to grasp every concept quickly. I love how everything in Bricks seemed so simple once Dave explained it in such a clear and precise way.
I haven’t looked back at Elementor since.
Now, I confidently build websites from scratch using Bricks builder. And what’s even better is the option to revisit any part of the course whenever I need to refresh my memory – every topic is covered thoroughly.
Love the way the modules are structured so logically, so many insightful moments along the way.
To anyone considering enrolling I can only say: Just do it. You won’t regret it!“
"Probably the best value course I have ever taken."
“I have to say, the prospect of learning yet another page builder for WordPress was a daunting one. But I needn’t have worried. Build With Bricks breaks everything down into logical, bite-sized steps.
I had zero knowledge of Bricks before I started the course, and it took me all the way to now using Bricks on live web projects for my clients.
I can’t imagine how much frustration and time I saved thanks to the shortcuts and gothchas that you pointed out along the way—not to mention the incidental design tips and best practice advice thrown in for good measure.
Probably the best value course I have ever taken.”
"I wish everyone had the ability to explain things the way you do"
“Your courses never disappoint, and your Bricks course is no exception. I wish everyone had the ability to explain things the way you do.
For example, your lesson on CSS Grid was fantastic. It was the first explanation of CSS Grid that actually made sense to me without my brain hurting. You made it feel like common sense.
So, I always walk away from your courses feeling confident in a new skill or how to use a new tool, plus I also just feel more confident in my ability as a web designer.
I’m already starting to think about transitioning almost exclusively to using Bricks Builder. Once you realize the power a builder like Bricks gives you, it’s hard to go back.”
Here's what we'll be covering in each module...
Install & Set-Up
Global Theme Styles
Layouts with Flex & CSS Grid
Headers & Footers
Classes: Typography & Colour
Classes: Layout (+ Go Live)

Will you be updating the course with new Bricks features?
In a word: YES!
For example, I plan to add extra lessons on Interactions and Popups very soon, as well as bonus lessons on ACF and custom fields. I’ll also teach the new mobile menu builder when it arrives in Bricks 1.8.
I’ve also since created an entirely new bonus course on ACSS, exclusively for Build With Bricks students (cos ACSS is awesome).
Obviously, I’m not promising to keep updating the course forever—that’s just not realistic. But right now, I already have plans for a complete version 2 remake later this year.

"I defy you to find a better instructor on the internet!"
“When Bricks came out, I snagged the LTD before beta testing was complete, and kept it on the back burner, waiting for a decent course to come along that could teach me the whole thing properly.
Dave Foy’s “Build with Bricks” was that course.
Now, I knew what to expect since I’d already completed several Dave Foy courses in the past, and I’ve loved them all). So, it was a no-brainer to jump on the pre-sale for his Bricks course.
And, no surprise, it was excellent.
This course gives you a solid foundation on how to develop in Bricks (and why you’d want to). The lessons are logically structured and thorough.
And, Dave’s delivery of the material is totally engaging. He really is a nice guy, and I defy you to find a better instructor on the internet!
I unreservedly recommend this course.”
"Hands down one of the best investments you can make as a web designer"
“Dave Foy’s Build With Bricks course is hands down one of the best investments you can make as a web designer.
The course is incredibly well-structured and comprehensive, covering everything from design principles to technical skills.
What sets this course apart from others is Dave’s teaching style, which is clear, concise, and easy to follow. He uses real-world examples and provides practical tips that you can immediately apply to your work.
Overall, I would highly recommend Dave Foy’s Bricks course to anyone looking to improve their web design skills and take their career to the next level.
Again, thanks for such a fantastic course.”

Frequently asked questions
Here are the answers to the questions I've had the most. If your question isn't here, feel free to ask using the yellow chat bubble in the bottom left corner of the screen. We'll get back to you asap.
Build With Bricks consists of around 50 short video-based lessons housed in a secure online classroom.
Beneath each video you’ll find additional resources, links and downloads.
And the specific learning points and tasks for each lesson are also beneath each video, clearly numbered.
Each lesson is between 3-10 mins long, split into bite-sized objectives. It’s really easy to go back and find specific things you’ve learnt in future.
No, not at all. I designed Build With Bricks assuming you’ve never used Bricks before.
I do assume, however, that you’ve used a page builder of some kind before, like Elementor, and that you have some basic knowledge of how WordPress works (pages, posts, what a single post and archive template is, etc). I don’t spent too much time explaining those concepts in detail, just how to implement them in Bricks.
No, you can follow along with the course even if you don’t have a Bricks license yet. Bricks provides a free ‘playground’ install where you can use most of the features of Bricks.
The course starts right from the beginning assuming no prior Bricks knowledge. However, many people who take my courses often tell me they picked up all sorts of best practice tips and workflow tricks they had no idea about, even if they felt they had quite a bit of experience using a tool.
I’d say if you’re an intermediate or advanced Bricks user though, this course is not for you.
Even for this crazy low price you get lifetime access to all the course material, any bonuses I might add, plus lifetime access to any future updates or remakes.
I’m not promising I’ll update the course forever more—that would be a silly promise to make. But I am promising that if I do add material to the course or remake it completely, you’ll get free access to it.
The main course focuses purely on native Bricks functionality. I figure that’s plenty enough for Bricks newbies to get their head around, especially if they’ve never used classes before.
However, I think ACSS is truly awesome. So I’ve made a bonus course called The Power of ACSS that picks up where the main course left off.
It’s a 15-part step-by-step walkthrough of exactly how to use ACSS to seriously speed up your web design workflow. And you get the course for free with Build With Bricks.
No. First, I simply don’t like WooCommerce. And second, it’s way outside the scope of this course, it’s the topic of a whole other course entirely.
I’ll never make training on WooCommerce so please don’t hold you breath waiting for it. 🙂
Yes, I do.
Bricks released CSS Grid just as I completed the Layout module (typical!)
So while the very first version of the course used Flexbox for layouts, I’ve since added more training on CSS Grid to update the course.
I sure do. Sadly, Bricks’ current implementation of the mobile menu builder isn’t particularly great. They’re working on a much better version right now for version 1.8, which should be with us soon (likely May).
Once the new mobile menu builder is released, I’ll update those lessons.
This version doesn’t, no. However, I’ll be adding lessons on those very shortly.
That’s the plan! I’m absolutely loving building websites with Bricks and can’t wait to continue to keep this course updated with new content, as new features arrive.
Note: this doesn’t constitute a promise to update the course forever more—that would be a silly promise to make. But yes, right now I have every intention of keeping this course up-to-date with all the latest developments in Bricks.
In some ways, yes. It’s not a ‘design course’, as such. My main focus is on the technicalities of the actual build process with Bricks.
However, throughout the course I’m constantly teaching principles of good design, baked deeply into the best practice workflow I teach.
You’ll find if you follow my framework that your sites will automatically look good, with consistent spacing and alignment, and a pleasing typographical scale.
Not in the main body of the course. For this version I took the decision to stick with native Bricks typography functionality.
However, the bonus ACSS course you also have access to teaches you how to create beautiful auto-responsive typography with almost no effort.
Not as such. The rest of the client/project lifecycle beyond the actual build is outside the scope of this course.
However, at the end of the course I do cover all the things you need to be aware of when going live with Bricks. It’s not a comprehensive go-live checklist or anything, just tasks that pertain to Bricks itself.
I get asked a lot of questions about if I cover all kinds of specialist and/or complex functionality requirements in the course.
If it’s not about the fundamentals of using Bricks to build the most common functionality found on most websites… the answer is usually no.
I understand the desire to want to squeeze as much training in as possible, for all possible functionality you might ever need to deliver for a client. But I’m a big believer in keeping courses ultra-focused on ONE result. Huge mega-courses that try to cover everything are usually a sprawling mess that’s no good to anyone, and no-one finishes them anyway.
Believe me, you’ll thank me for keeping Build With Bricks concise and to-the-point. 🙂
Soon after you enroll you’ll receive an email from me with a link to the group.
Just click that link, request access, and then we’ll manually approve you.
Unfortunately it’s a manual process, but it shouldn’t be more than 24 hours before you’re in.
Hurray! Welcome to Build With Bricks!
You’ll soon receive two emails:
One from my course platform provider, with instructions to join my Learn With Dave platform on Circle.
And another directly from me, welcoming you to the course, and explaining how to join the Facebook group.
You certainly can join later, but the price will be considerably higher, and rising more each time I add more bonuses and updates.
You see, when you see something that you know you need, it’s easy to think to yourself “I’ll put this off until a “better” time.
The only trouble is, no such time exists and before you know it, you’ve wasted weeks of not benefiting from the tried and tested strategies included in the course.
Part of my role as an educator is to hold you to the same high standards that I hold for myself, and so I encourage you to take decisive action.
That’s one reason why I’m opening Build With Bricks for a short time—to help you quickly decide whether it’s the right option for you so you don’t waste time procrastinating or avoid making a decision.
And don’t forget, when you enrol you have lifetime access to the course, including all future updates, so you can easily invest now and pick it up when you have time.
Why not take advantage of this low price while you can?
You can pay with any major debit or credit card, or with PayPal, Apple Pay or Google Pay.
Yes, I also provide a means of splitting your payment across 3 months. The total you’ll pay is very slightly higher to account for the extra admin involved.
Sure! I want you to be completely satisfied that Build With Bricks is the answer to confidently and profitably building rock-solid WordPress websites that are a breeze to maintain.
If you jump in the course and decide it’s not for you, no worries. Just drop us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org – and we’ll refund you right away.
