About FeatheredVine Studio Pty Ltd

Welcome to my corner of the internet, Friend!


Hello, and welcome to our company and community. I am so glad that you made your way over here, and want to learn more about who we are and how we can help you create a website and business that you love!

I’d like to introduce myself. I am Yolandé, founder of FeatheredVine. My entrepreneurial journey started in 2018 when I became desperate to provide an extra income for our family. We have four kids and homeschool, so I needed to find something that would fit in with our schedule and honor our family values.

After taking many courses and doing loads of research, I learned how to use a computer, be a pro at building websites, and grow the company you see today! I know what it means to be tech-phobic and learn new skills from scratch.

That is why I am so passionate about teaching and coaching other entrepreneurs who want to create a life and home-based business that suits their family and individual needs. With the programs we provide here at FeatheredVine Studio, we cut down the learning curve, the frustrations, and fear!

We are based in the surfing town Muizenberg, a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. We serve a global community and accommodate all different time zones.

Family and community form part of our core values, so we like to stay flexible and adaptable. We understand when life and health get in the way, and you need to reschedule or have little ones or aging parents interrupt our meetings.

We are here for you in Tech Loving Care™.

Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s just say that feathers and business have a lot in common:

Well, it is the most accessible, most customizable theme on the market. We love that you buy a Child Theme, which is a template, and you are not boxed in by layouts, colors, fonts, or content. You can change your entire website just the way you would like it with the block editor. This means the theme is designed to grow with your business, and child themes and section layouts are only templates to give you a starting point and save time in building it from scratch. You have complete control over the look and function of your website!

For sure! I am available to answer any questions you may have or help you make decisions on tools and software you need for your business. I absolutely love the hand-holding part of a coaching call, where I can walk you through every step of the setup process of a new tool, program, or software that you try to implement.

Need help on deciding which direction to take your business? I can definitely help you work through the process and come up with a plan of action.
