Dahlia's intention with this botanical printing kit is to introduce you to the pleasures of plant dyeing and at the same time have you experience an encounter with nature, flowers and your creativity.
Using flowers that she has grown in her dye plant garden in Kamouraska, she invites you to dye your knitted blank in duplicate to make identical socks or a shawl. In order to simplify this moment of creation, the knitted fabric has already been mordanted, meaning that it is ready to be dyed.
This creative activity is a moment that we allow ourselves or our children to create with nature.
It is an invitation to wear our territory, to dress with respect for it and for ourselves and to establish a new relationship with the plants that surround us.
