The Space is slowly opening up for events, and we are still running our Street Survival sessions, as the homeless still need support during this time (here’s how you can help).

Our shop is open again! On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 12-4pm and every Saturday from 11am-4pm you can browse and buy from the Stokes Croft China shop on Jamaica Street.

You can still shop online 24/7, however to minimise exposure to our shop staff and to the post office workers, we post out our online orders second class on Tuesdays and Fridays, so please be patient with your deliveries.

We fund our entire operation through the china shop and our event space – by ordering from our online shop or donating you can help to ensure our future existence. We appreciate all your patience and support throughout this difficult time.

Stokes Croft Food Project

Stokes Croft Food Project is a collaboration between local businesses, charities and campaigners, set up to tackle hunger and food poverty in Stokes Croft by providing nutritious food to those most in need in our community, particularly during this global health crisis.


A collaboration with Dr John Lee of the University of Bristol, on a COVID-19 #medicineonthewalls project. Using our outdoor gallery wall, and our street-art friends, we’re making a video-graff message of public health – with our own take.

Street Survival

Our regular skill-sharing/self-help sessions for local rough-sleepers are still happening on Tuesday afternoons from 2-4pm. Survival skills, tips and tricks for living on the streets, tea & coffee, plus a blanket exchange offering tents, bedding & toiletries.

We promote art in the community

PRSC curate an outdoor gallery in Stokes Croft, with our own wall on Jamaica Street attracting local and international artistic talent.

We improve and bring life to our urban environment

We make radical fine bone china

Our artists make experimentally decorated china right here in Stokes Croft, using new and salvaged ceramic transfers.

We campaign for local issues

Since 2007, the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft – PRSC – has worked tirelessly to promote civil liberty with a particular focus on public space. Sweeping, painting and speaking out are part of their resistance to zealous overregulation of independent initiative. Their lead has arguably encouraged others to do the same and, as a result, Stokes Croft remains a hub of confident and creative dissent.
