Long before SwizzleStick existed, Artistic Director Christopher Pinherio received a Commonwealth Fellowship grant to study fabic painting and production in Varanassi, India.  On his return to Trinidad, he founded The Colourworks, producing limited edition textiles and fashion designs.  He has exhibited his work internationally and his triptych “Dancing Dhotis” was purchased by the Royal Ontario Museum for the Permanent Collection.

Christopher now teaches fabric painting to both kids and adults.  The picture below is from SwizzleStick’s project in Art City, funded by Evergreen and the Toronto Arts Council
