Great Class,we all learnt how to use a pattern to cut out our respective Projects, and learn how to form and sew our pieces, all with different types of leather,depending on what we were making. I made a belt from a hide,with a brass buckle, realy pleased. Give the class a try,you won't be disappointed. Thanks Kingsley.

This was a great workshop for learning the first few skills you need. Kingsley is a great teacher - very knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and reassuring - and seemed to instinctively know when we needed help and when we were doing okay. Great class size too. Definitely recommended if you want to start working with leather or just for a nice day learning a cool new skill.

Your Teacher

Whilst studying tailoring and learning the traditional methods of working with leather, I quickly became captivated with leather craftsmanship and the versatility and longevity of leather as a material. This became the start of the Kingsley Walters brand, founded in 2015.

What initially began as a hobby - making small items for myself and friends - soon turned into a business, as I began to receive bespoke orders by word of mouth. Making further investment in traditional saddlery tools, I have been able to create small capsule collections, as well as lead workshops on leather craftsmanship.

As a craftsman, I make practical…

Kingsley is an excellent teacher, he will go with the student's pace and take the time to explain things. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you go away with your own creation, in my case a nice cardholder, highly recommended.

Had a great time and came away with a lovely wallet. Kingsley is very knowledgable and was so helpful and patient. When I kept making a mistake with the hand stitching he would put things right until I eventually got the hang of it. I highly recommend this course.

We had a great time in Kingsley's workshop. He was a very attentive teacher and walked us through every step of the way. I made a beautiful wallet that I use every day now. It was a really enjoyable activity and left me eager to learn more!
