Leaves, shells, toy cars, chains and other assorted objects are first arranged on a special photo paper.
These compositions of objects are then taken outside and placed in the sun.
After a few minutes magically the paper is printed with the shapes and patterns of the objects.
Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to make at least two of their own prints.
