Disaster to Done: Organizing your Family Photos

October 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$265.00 – $295.00

This four-week course will help you organize and care for your printed family photos

Class will meet on four consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6:00 – 8:00 pm:



Odds are you’ve got at least a few hundred (if not a few thousand) photos in boxes, bags, albums, envelopes, frames, files, slide carousel, etc. and that doesn’t even begin to address the thousands of image files you probably have since digital photography really got going about 15 years ago.

Do you have thousands of any other kind of important personal keepsake that you feel responsibility for preserving? We know that somehow, if the photos are in our possession, we are responsible for caring for them. But we don’t often know what’s necessary to be the best caretakers for our photo memories.

Do you want to organize your family photos so you can spend more time reliving your favorite photo memories? This course will help you take your photo collection from disaster to perfection. Disaster to joy. Disaster to Done.


A Supply kit will be provided to each person and will include:
  • One archival box with dividers that holds approximately 1500 photos, size 4 x 6 or smaller
  • One anti-static cleaning cloth
  • One bottle of photo safe adhesive remover
  • One small spatula
  • One archival photo-safe permanent ink pen
