Hannah Shell Schultz (b. Gloucester, MA, 1987, & r. FLORIDA later New York) completed her BFA in Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She is a textile designer favoring conversational designs. Conversational pieces allow the wearer to inform the viewer a little about themselves and what they like, which can spark a conversation. She also works as a screen printer and instructor at the Textile Arts Center, specializing in printing foil, devoré, natural dyes, yardage, and more.
After a 9-month residency at TAC in 2014 Hannah continues to work on a series titled “Game Cloth.” Simply designing games with textiles and soft sculptures, helping to maintain the childlike desire to have fun, get weird, and get physical.
