We Are The Makers

Team Tanner Bates:



    After a decade of living and working in London for Smythson of Bond Street, Rick moved to Devon, joining Team TB in 2020.

When not busy working away at Tanner Bates, Rick is often found adventuring and wild swimming around Devon with his partner and their Springer Spaniel Mannie.
Matt attended one of John’s Leather School courses, and has since been hooked. Joining Team TB in 2019, Matt soon became an invaluable member of the team. From managing the workshop to making and photography to technology, there isn’t anything Matt can’t do!
When not busy at Tanner Bates, Matt and his family enjoy walks, wild swims and paddle boarding with Billy his Border Collie.
