Tie Dye with Village Boys

I bought a tye-die kit from Artist and Craftman for no apparent reason this past summer. While packing for the China Residency I decided to take it as a project to potentially do with the kids in the host family. I knew they had two young sons. Turns out the kids were already pretty grown, one boy had gone off to college and the other boy was going to high school in the city and only came home on weekends. We asked the younger brother to invite his friends over on the weekend to partake in the tye-die project.

I showed the boys four different patterns they could create on the T-Shirt. Being high schoolers and striving for perfection, they were extremely meticulous in laying out their pattern. They folded and unfolded their tees until they got it just right. Below are the results! Click the photo to view the gallery
