Known for her extraordinary hand-crafted felted wool sculptures, Elsa Jo Ellison is among 100 artists whose handcrafted work will be sold at this year’s Holiday Gallery Shop. For more than 20 years, Elsa Jo, a native of Wanamingo, Minnesota, has been sculpting wool from the sheep at the Ellison Sheep Farm, and she has created an endless variety of original figures and creatures, each with its own personality, detailed eyes, and unique expression.
The Textile Center Shop carries exquisite handmade fiber art, from luscious wearables of every hue to home décor and gifts, along with books, professional art supplies and tools, fiber craft kits, and other unique finds. In addition, the Shop carries a plethora of eco-friendly merchandise, including upcycled fashions, sustainable materials, and naturally dyed items. For the holidays, Textile Center triples the Shop’s regular footprint, expanding to fill the Joan Mondale Gallery with even more fabulous one-of-a-kind fiber art, just in time for gift giving. Many of the artists are new to the Textile Center, selling their work for the first time at this special pop-up holiday shop.
Patrons are also invited to take a selfie with our new life-sized, yarn-bombed Santa!
