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, during this time she interned at the Textile Arts Center (TAC) where she began her exploration of printing with natural dyes through the Sewing Seeds project; working under the founder and director Isa Rodrigues. Hannah is a textile designer favoring conversational designs. Conversationals allow the wearer to inform the viewer a little about themselves and what they like, sparking conversation. She also works as a specialty screen printer, instructor, and waste reduction consultant. Forever embracing any challenge, she is always designing new ways to reduce textile waste into further functioning objects and encourages REDUCE, reuse, repurpose practices into your everyday life.
After a 9-month residency at TAC in 2014 Hannah continues to work on a series titled Game Cloth. Designing games with textiles and soft sculptures, helping to maintain the childlike desire to have fun, get weird, and get physical. Hannah also hosts a yearly exhibition "Highly Personal / Deeply Social" held on Flag Day. #whatisaflag
