In July, TI partnered with Laos In The House and City of Philadelphia Mural Arts to host "Lao & Tie". Held in South Philadelphia at Southeast by Southeast, community members joined for a two-hour workshop on tie-making. During the workshop, participants learned how to design a tie through pattern-making, cutting, and sewing. By the end, each participant completed a bow tie with their fabric of choice.

If you missed it, no worries, check out the recap video by Catzie Vilayphonh of Laos In The House. Also, part two of "Lao & Tie" is on its way! The second workshop is on September 17 at Southeast by Southeast in Philadelphia. This time, participants will learn how to properly tie and wear different tie styles. Get your best business attire ready and join TI! No tie? All good. Ties will be available for all participants.
