Ada Vachell Mug
The resident artists at 'Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft' carefully combine and arrange the designs in their Stokes Croft studio, ensuring that no two items are the same.
Ada Vachell (1866 – 1923)
Suffragist, ‘spinster’ and ardent Christian, Vachell was the first to set up a social centre for Bristol’s destitute disabled children in 1905. Its name ‘Guild of the Poor Brave Things’ (later ‘Guild of the Handicapped’) may now jar, but Vachell was visionary in choosing to see disabled people as individuals whose potential was suppressed by poverty and prejudice.

About Journey to Justice Bristol
The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) are participating in a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.
As part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event throughout October 2017, PRSC is working with JToJ to celebrate and honour key activists in Bristol that have contributed to and inspired the social movement but have not been recognised for their actions. To raise awareness about these people, we feature their likeness and ideas on fine bone china mugs and prints.
English Fine Bone China manufactured in Staffordshire and hand-decorated in Bristol, England. Every mug is uniquely decorated with a mixture of rare and modern ceramic transfers.
