The Kingsley Walters brand was founded in 2015. Initially begun as a hobby - making small items for myself and friends - it 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.

One day Bag making traditional leather workshop (tote bag / side bag)
"I loved this course and the bag I made at the end of the day. Kingsley was very helpful and attentive to all the students and gave us many options to personalise our bags to our own style and taste. I learnt so much about leather craft and will definitely be attending another course. I'll be recommending this course to friends and family. Thank you Kingsley! "
"Took a Saturday course in making small leather goods and had a fantastic time. Kingsley was patient, thorough, and had a superbly calm energy that made me feel not quite as clumsy as I probably was. We learned about the different kinds of leather, tanning techniques, patterns/templates, leather conditioning, cutting, punching, adding snap buttons, edge-finishing, hand stitching with beeswax-coated thread, etc. Came away with a beautiful leather wallet that isn't half bad for a first try."
"The course was absolutely amazing, Kingsley, the tutor explained everything step by step. He was very patient and supportive. I would recommend this course to anyone, I learnt so much and came away with a beautiful leather bag. "
