Children's Brass Rubbing Kits and Accessories

Brass Rubbing is a medieval art form where a sheet of paper is stretched across the brass plates commonly found on tombs and churches in Europe, and an impression taken using special hard waxes.  Whether your interest is historical characters or "Dragons Dreams and Derring Do", our kits provide an educational (a great many of our kits go to schools and libraries) and fun activity. Your children can create a picture to hang proudly on their bedroom walls, to use in birthday party invites, to decorate your fridge or wherever takes their fancy.
