Stokes Croft Art Furniture Grand Opening in the New PRSC Gallery Friday 15th July 2011
February 2, 2011
Following in the footsteps of E.W. Godwin, the forgotten Patron Saint of Stokes Croft, we launch Stokes Croft Art Furniture.
Using materials found in the street, old furniture headed for landfill, we fashion unique pieces of furniture, which transcend the merely functional. Local artists working with materials found locally create a new aesthetic that clearly evokes the soul of Stokes Croft.

Stokes Croft Arts Furniture Launches in Jamaica Street. Now Open Monday- Saturday 11am-6pm
July 17, 2011
Stokes Croft Arts Furniture launched on Friday, with a good turnout. The show is open from Mon-Saturday 11 am-6pm. Almost all pieces come from furniture and material found on the streets in and around Stokes Croft. The show will develop and change as more pieces of furniture are produced and pieces are sold. The show will run until late August. Stokes Croft Art Funiture is an ongoing business which will run to help PRSC to fund its activities, to enable people to develop their skills, and to recycle unwanted furniture by imbuing the pieces with value through revamping them for the 21st Century.
