Rivington Morris

Last week I emailed Rivington Morris because my folky research was distinctly lacking in traditional dance, one of the first things that comes to my mind when I think of British folk.

Rivington Morris are my local team, practicing just round the corner from my house, however I travelled to Todmordon to see them perform with a host of other teams. I photographed and talked to some of them, doing quick sketches and later transforming my photographs into blind contour drawings which were made into digital prints and put onto screens to create some interesting textiles.
