I made this Protestation Handkerchief for a group exhibition called 'Flash Company': a handkerchief show at Cecil Sharp House, curated by Matthew Cowan. The exhibition is open from 30th April 2009 until 28th June 2009. There is more information about the exhibition on the Flash Company blog. The English Folk Dance and Song Society news page also has information about the exhibition, and EFDSS generally.
