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.

Makerchallenge: Make a lithography: from start  to finish. Make a press, learn about the art and science behind the craft, make  an illustration and print!
