Collection: Beams and Bobbins

If the spirit of Beams and Bobbins was bottled, its dark history would be a theatrical concoction of black magic and gothic stories; the bottle stickered with a  faded sepia label whose graphics combined sailor jerry tattoos and the anatomical sketchings of ancient mythical sea creatures. Pop the cork and you’d smell motorbike exhausts, mosh pits and rum.

Calida Hartley-Potts is the creative force behind Beams and Bobbins – circa 2018.  I like tattoos, piercings, bright hair and black clothes; motorbikes and metal music; ghost stories and old architecture.  You’ll find my studio in Sparrowpit, Derbyshire; in the garage of my country cottage home.  My studio truly is my sanctuary of calm and I feel massively privileged that people support my business enough to take it beyond just a hobby; although whilst it is a sanctuary of calm, you’ll usually find me blasting some heavy rock or metal music.

The inspiration for my designs usually come from anything dark and unusual – things that are witchy, supernatural or occult; bugs and insects or beastly creatures;  imagery and characters found in old and folklore or mythology; or maybe graphics and imagery around the rock/metal and tattoo culture.  In other words if its a little bit strange, i’ll love it!
