Caroline Z. Hurley
Painter and Textile Designer
Block printing is one of the oldest methods of printing images and patterns, dating back to the year 220. Caroline's block printed designs use simple shapes and highly intentional compositions, and can be found on her throws and blankets, pillows, napkins, and runners. Caroline works with a group of skilled weavers in New Bedford, Massachusetts — a place that once had more than 30 working textile mills employing more than 40,000 people. The weavers Caroline met in New Bedford had never block printed before, but had a desire to learn. Caroline trained the group to block print and they are now the sole producers of all of her block-printed products and fabrics.
