Devon stave basket course at The Old Kennels

Devon stave basket course at The Old Kennels


Stave baskets are very hard wearing and give years of service. You will be making a ‘number 2’ sized basket with a handle, which was designed to hold about 20lbs of potatoes using cleft ash for the ‘bonds’ and handle and western red cedar for the staves.

A traditional basket also known as a splint basket originating from west/north Devon and used by farmers and smallholders for planting and harvesting potatoes, apples, feeding stock, and a multitude of tasks on the land.
