This will be my first time using Craft, where can I download free templates from or find instructions on how I can create my own templates?

To add to Matt's answer there are example templates which contain enough code to get you started in the templates folder craft/templates.

There is also a repo on Github called 'HappyLager' which contains more example templates along with annotations.


You won't find downloadable templates like you're used to in other CMS's because the philosophy of Craft isn't about downloading theme's. You should be building your own: https://craftcms.com/docs/templating-overview
