Some background on myself: I have enjoyed tie dye as a hobby, but have probably dyed fewer than 20 shirts. Now that my sons are older (10 and 12), I thought I would include them more in this hobby than I have in past years. So we bought this DVD to watch together as a preview to the activity.
Here are my thoughts on the DVD:
The material is very clearly presented. No step is skimmed over (for instance, they will say "Next add 3 tablespoons of dye powder," and will be shown measuring and adding tablespoon 1, tablespoon 2, and tablespoon 3 of the dye powder.)
The two presenters are standing at a work table facing the cameras, as teachers might stand in front of a class. They are clearly reading from an overhead projector, and look very poker-faced most of the time. A few times at the start of a new section it seems they have been reminded to smile. The kids and I had some good chuckles over the presentation style.
There is one bizzare place in the DVD where the female presenter is giving instruction on diluting dye solution (or something like that) and the male presenter is shown with a thought bubble in which he is picturing the female presenter prancing around in a tie dyed bikini. I could have done without that...
Overall, I got some good new ideas for materials which would simplify the workspace, and learned techniques for folding and applying colour that I did not know before, despite having read numerous books on the subject.
