Charlie Deighton is a designer maker based in Bristol. The majority of her work is created in quantities to be sold at craft fairs or in other small shops in the south of the UK. She does create bespoke pieces though, in the form of ragdolls. The customer can have a say on the facial features of the ragdoll, and can request custom clothes for the doll as well.
Her work is what I instantly think of when given the word ‘craft. It’s quite charming as a lot of her pieces are aimed at children, and are exactly the kind of things I would have loved as a child.
