The London Brass Rubbing Centre in St Martin-in-the-Fields has more than 90 replica brasses to make rubbings of, including costumed ladies, medieval knights in armour, St George and the dragon, and Shakespeare. Images to work on include British church brasses, floriated European brasses and Zodiac woodcuts. Children often enjoy rubbing the animals at the feet of the brasses: lions, unicorns, sheep and a particularly popular dragon.
