Phase 4: Preparing to Share: Emerging Ideas
The main point that I hope to share with my audience is how tie dye is made, and what it is like to buy or sell it.
My audience for this point would be anyone that is interested. For instance I could ask around middle school, and see if anyone wants to see my presentation. If not, then I can always present it to curious teachers such as the art teachers.
Other information that would be an important addition to my main point could be an interview with a vendor, to show an example of the vendor's point of view. I could talk a bit about the history of tie dye, and how the dyes have changed over time.
I will also include how the roles have changed over time, from men making the textiles to the women. The additional information would probably just be the things that I found most interesting while researching my topic.
The way that I plan to present my final product is through film. I have taken video of the entire tie dye process, and will make the video easy to follow and understand. I also hope to bring in samples, and show the people directly how tie dye is made. Then I could show the obvious difference between Batik and tie dye, and explain how you can see the differences of the two. My project will be part video, and part interactive.
