Visit Pomona Cemetery and learn the art of frottage or rubbing through creating ‘prints’ from gravestones and markers.
Safely and respectfully discover this ancient and traditional practice used by family history researchers for preserving tombstone inscriptions. Experiment with layering and collaging images and colours to create a variety of textures using crayon and charcoal on rice paper.
