Lithography on old bricks
There is a rich history of print, with lithography as one of the techniques that inspired lots of development, leading to the printers we use today. In this lesson we dove into this old craft, and experimented with it using old bricks.
We wanted to explore different uses of old bricks as a whole and lithography gave us a perfect technique to use it as a blank canvas. Children enjoyed colouring on this "strange" medium that resulted in fun printed patterns.
